What is McTimoney Chiropractic?
McTimoney Chiropractic is a gentle and effective treatment for the whole body. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method of treatment makes it especially suitable for people of all ages including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
Chiropractic treatment offers safe, gentle relief of discomfort during pregnancy, and our practitioners sometimes work with midwives, health visitors and lactation consultants.
Some chiropractors work with patients with specific needs, such as those with disabilities or learning difficulties, and with premature babies.
The following conditions often benefit from McTimoney Chiropractic treatment:
- Back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain

McTimoney chiropractors are highly trained in this gentle, precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. This gentle straight forward method to realign and re-balance your body can increase mobility, relieve pain and discomfort, such as numbness or pins and needles. In the course of improving the alignment to your skeleton nerve information from the brain is transmitted accurately thereby helping your nervous system to work more efficiently.
Misalignments of the joints may occur as a result of poor posture, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress or an incorrect method of lifting. Depending on the nature of the problem, age and fitness levels most patients will experience a noticeable change after their course of treatment and experience a greater sense of well being.
McTimoney chiropractors have a finely tuned sense of touch, developed in their years of training, which enables them to feel for misalignments of the vertebrae and bones. Upon locating a problem, your chiropractor will use one of a number of light, swift and dexterous techniques to adjust the joint.
