About Chiropractic

The word "Chiropractic" comes from ancient Greek and means "done by hand". It is now the 3rd largest healing profession in the western world after medicine and dentistry. Chiropractors are health professionals concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of conditions that are due to problems with bones, joints, muscles and nerves, particularly those realted to the spine. Chiropractors work on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, using their hands to perform treatment tailored to each individuals needs. Our treatments incorporate a variety of skilled manual techniques involving massage and precise, gentle, manipulation.

Treatment is designed to improve the function of the joints, helping to relieve the body of pain and muscle spasm. Chiropractors provide an individual ‘package of care’ whereby they support their treatment with individual counselling and advice about the patient's lifestyle, work and exercise, in order to help in managing the condition and preventing a recurrence of the problem. Treatment is available to everyone including babies and pregnant women to the very elderly.
