Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of a wide range of conditions that affect the joints, the muscles and the nervous system.
Using subtle adjustments, chiropractic treatment can relieve pain and discomfort, increase mobility and provide a route to better health.
There are many different chiropractic methods used in the world today and I use the McTimoney technique. This is one branch of the profession, which accounts for about a third of the chiropractors in the UK. To learn more about the gentle nature of the McTimoney method please visit the McTimoney website.
The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it suitable for people of all ages including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
I also incorporate massage techniques, advice, support and rehabilitation exercises within the treatment when required.
A full case history, including general health background as well as details of your symptoms will be carefully taken. Followed by a thorough examination and assessment of the bones and joints and then a diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed and agreed upon. If any problems are discovered or suspected which require medical investigation or an X-ray you will be referred back to your GP.

This varies considerably depending on age, the nature of the problem and the amount of time you have had the problem. Generally, people need between two and six sessions.
The following conditions often benefit from treatment:
