McTimoney Chiropractic

What Is Chiropractic And How Does It Work?

Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and the nervous systems and the effects these disorders can have on health.

An underlying principle of chiropractic is that a correctly aligned skeleton facilitates a healthy nervous system.

Chiropractors practice a drug free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment.

The McTimoney approach to chiropractic is one of holism and vitalism. The philosophy of McTimoney Chiropractic recognizes that the body has an 'innate intelligence' and possesses a self-healing mechanism; the aim of the therapist is to assist that process. This holistic approach to chiropractic is one of encouraging the realignment of the body thus allowing the bodies' innate intelligence to perform at its optimum.
