FAQs: How does McTimoney Chiropractic work?
Page Last Updated: Fri 24th Jul 2020
The gentle and non-invasive McTimoney technique is applied to the spine and other joints of the body to relieve pain and restore normal joint mobility.
Chiropractors look for areas of your spine where the joints may be fixated and ‘pressing’ or ‘pinching’ on nerves. The application of the technique to a specific area is called an ‘adjustment’, a very high speed but light impulse movement of the hand.
By re-aligning the spine and relieving irritation of the neighbouring nerves, the nervous system is allowed to function at its optimal level, thus helping to restore the body’s musculo-skeletal health.
