Chiropractic

Chiropractic focuses on restoring, preserving, and optimising health through non-invasive, natural hands-on care, in other words without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors specialise in the treatment of the neuro-musculoskeletal system (meaning the nervous system, joints and muscles). Most commonly patients seek help with back and neck pain, but the whole system works better with a properly functioning nervous system.

Your nervous system is comprised of your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Your skull and spine, surround and protect your brain and spinal cord respectively, so these areas are where we typically focus much of our efforts, assessing where poor functioning joints, cranial bones, muscles and nerves result in pain and mobility problems as well as general poor health. Typically chiropractic treatment involves a blend of skilful realignment, coupled with nutritional and lifestyle advice, and an exercise programme.
