ChiropracticChiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession specialising in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biomechanical disorders involving the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The straightforward method of adjusting the bones of the body improves skeletal alignment relieving pain, discomfort and increases mobility. It is non-invasive, and encourages the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
The McTimoney method of chiropractic was developed by the late John
McTimoney over 60 years ago. It is well known for being a precise, whole
body approach to care, seeking to eliminate the cause instead of just
treating the symptoms. The use of specific local adjustments, delivered
swiftly with low force and immediate release, make them comfortable to
receive and suitable for people of all ages, including pregnant women,
babies and the elderly. People who are anxious about high-force
manipulation may find this treatment a suitable option.
What are the benefits?Patients seek treatments for a wide variety of conditions and for general
well being. To establish an evidence-base for chiropractic care, the Bronfort Report was commissioned in 2010 to enable a concise and comprehensive summary of the scientific evidence. The following are some common conditions that can be successfully treated, in conjunction with mobilisation and rehabilitation exercise routines, key components of chiropractic care:
Back pain (long and short term)
Neck pain (long and short term)
Migraine headaches/ preventative
Shoulder pain (including frozen shoulder)

Some forms of radiating Leg Pain/ Sciatica

musculoskeletal system and when necessary, he can assess, prescribe and make custom orthotics using the ICB Orthotics System, offering this
