What is Chiropractic
Your nervous system helps to control how your body works, running from your brain through your spine to every cell in your body. When a nerve becomes impinged, compressed, or stretched, the information that passes along it can become distorted leading to pain, discomfort, or restricted mobility. Chiropractors use their hands to adjust the joints of your spine and other areas of the body where signs of restrictions in movement are found. By adjusting these points of interference, it stimulates the body’s own self-healing ability and facilitates a return to optimum health and function.
An interference of nerve function can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress, and poor posture. These can lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.
Chiropractors using the McTimoney technique use their well-tuned sense of touch to locate areas where these interferences exist. They use light-force adjustments to align and rebalance the body. The McTimoney method is widely recognised as being a gentle, precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care making it especially suitable for people of all ages.
