In my early 20's I hurt my back after an accident, leaving me with numbness in my right leg. After being treated by a chiropractor, it left me with the burning ambition to become a chiropractor and to help people in pain. This ambition never left me, which I fulfilled 25 years later.
I became a McTimoney chiropractor because, if I am being honest it was the only part time course in the UK that allowed me to train and learn to become a chiropractor. But I love this technique, after every treatment the whole of my body has been adjusted. So my body will always feel more mobile and free.
We all live busy lives, sometimes the pressure and strains can have a negative effect on our body. How we sit and how we move can cause imbalance and pain. Pain is a way of your body telling you that something needs to change. Poor posture and movement patterns are usually a long time in the making, the McTimoney technique will gently rebalance your body.
No matter what your age, or the intensity and length of your problem, chiropractic could benefit you.

Time: 1.5 hours
Initial Consultation: During your initial consultation we will ask you about your symptoms, medical background and lifestyle. The chiropractor will perform a thorough examination including orthopedic, postural and neurological tests as appropriate. This enables the chiropractor to make an accurate assessment prior to carrying out any chiropractic adjustments.
On occasion, your chiropractor may discover an underlying medical condition and, if necessary will refer you to your GP for further investigation.
Your initial consultation and first treatment will typical last between 60 and 90 minutes, further follow up treatments typically last between 15 to 30 minutes.
Time: 40 minutes
The McTimoney chiropractic technique takes approximately 40 minutes. It is a whole body technique covering head down to your toes. It is a gentle technique mobilising all of your body helping you feel looser.
Typically people notice a change in their condition after two to six treatments. These are initially at weekly intervals and then more widely spaced as the adjustments hold and the body responds to treatment. The elderly, or those with more chronic conditions, often require more treatment sessions.
Once the problem has been resolved, regular check-ups are recommended to keep your body functioning well.

What is chiropractic
The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) states: “Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation”.
Chiropractors focus on the spine and the neuro-musculoskeletal system and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and performance. Chiropractors are trained to assess the neuro-musculoskeletal system and identify restrictions, imbalances and dysfunction. Our package of care involves spinal and peripheral joint adjustments and mobilisations, application of soft tissue treatment and advice on exercise, self-help, diet and lifestyle where appropriate. Some chiropractors offer rehabilitation programmes.
Chiropractors do not use medicines or surgery and the gentle manual approaches we use are extremely safe and comfortable to receive.
A package of chiropractic care is used regularly to help maintain good posture, promote health and improve performance, no matter what it is you do, from a high performance athlete to a senior member of the community enjoying a potter in the garden.
