McTimoney Chiropractic

What is McTimoney Chiropractic?

McTimoney Chiropractic is a precise, whole-body approach to chiropractic care that focuses on correcting misalignments in the spine and other joints. It is based on the belief that these misalignments can interfere with the body’s natural ability to heal itself, leading to pain, discomfort and other health problems.

McTimoney Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to adjust the spine and joints, including specific adjustments, soft tissue work and joint mobilisations. They also work with patients to identify and address the underlying causes of their pain, such as poor posture, stress or injury.
