Chiropractic is a physical therapy designed to restore or improve the functioning of the musculo-skeletal system, in particular the spine.
The purpose of chiropractic care is to help relieve pain and discomfort and increase mobility. Your chiropractor may also offer post-treatment rehabilitative exercise programs as well as health and lifestyle suggestions to help improve your condition.
Chiropractors are concerned with the treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine and nervous system.
Chiropractic treatment at the Chiros Health Clinic involves gentle techniques applied to the spine and other joints. Where applicable a number of soft tissue techniques are applied to the tendons, ligaments and muscles.
Chiropractors take a complete approach to your health. They consider symptoms in the context of your full medical history, lifestyle and personal circumstances. We strive toward early intervention and durable rehabilitation.

How does McTimoney Chiropractic work?
What happens during an assessment?
- Detailed medical histories, including information on previous injuries, surgery, general health and lifestyle are taken.
- Physical examinations of patients, focusing on the spine and posture and noting the range of movement.
- Checking blood pressure and performing other tests such as neurological and orthopaedic examinations.
What will happen during a treatment?
The session begins with taking a lifestyle and medical history. As well as a detailed description of any conditions that may need treating and any specific treatment goals and requests.
The practitioner will then explain the results of their examination. Providing there are no medical reasons to prevent treatment they will then explain the treatment plan and any possible reactions you might experience.
If it isn’t appropriate for you to receive this type of treatment you may be referred to an alternative practitioner. If your chiropractor discovers or suspects a condition which requires medical assessment and intervention they will refer you to your GP.
