What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a 100% natural approach to maximising health. Chiropractic aims to ensure that the brain and the body are communicating with each other without interference.

Chiropractic is a system of complementary medicine which specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions caused by mechanical dysfunction of the joints, particularly the spine, and their effects on the nervous system.

After finding out what is wrong, chiropractors use their hands to adjust the joints of your spine or limbs where they have found signs of restricted movement.  This improves mobility and relieves pain and helps your body’s own healing processes to improve your health.  This treatment is known as ‘adjustment’ or ‘manipulation’.

Chiropractors will provide natural, drug free, non surgical treatments suitable for everyone, from newborn babies to older people, pregnant women and people who take part in sport.  The aim of treatment is not just to make you feel better, but to help ensure your health remains better.
