Chiropractic is concerned with improving function of the musculo-skeletal system and in particular, the spine. It is a method of locating areas of mechanical dysfunction that could be contributing to poor mobility, pain and discomfort.  Specific, gentle adjustments help to restore correct movement and relieve pain.

People most commonly consult a Chiropractor for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculo-skeletal system and treatment can be helpful for many complaints, including back pain, neck pain, other joint disorders and some headaches. Your chiropractor may also use additional tools such as massage techniques and exercise advice to assist your recovery.

Late cancellations
