Chiropractic using the McTimoney method is a gentle, effective technique which is used to help with a range of complaints including back pain, neck pain and headaches. Using gentle, precise adjustments, your chiropractor’s aim is to optimise the function of the nervous system by working with the muscular and skeletal systems in order to aid recovery, optimise movement and reduce pain.
Due to its gentle nature, McTimoney Chiropractic is suitable for all ages from all walks of life. So whether you have had a long-standing problem or are struggling as a result of a sports injury, chiropractic can help to optimise your health and get you back to doing the things you enjoy.
The treatments are carried out in a spacious, quiet and confidential environment.
It may be necessary to remove some items of clothing, particularly during the initial assessment. However, during follow-up appointments, if you would be more comfortable then it is acceptable to wear a vest-top or t-shirt and shorts, jogging bottoms or leggings. Jeans and other bulky clothes are not ideal.
Duration: 1.5 hours
During your initial assessment visit, details of the problem causing you pain or discomfort will be taken, and testing will be carried out in order to identify the root cause of the problem. A medical history will also be taken, so if you are taking any medication it is useful if you can bring the details of this with you. Once the assessment has been completed, if both parties are happy we will proceed with a treatment.
Duration: 40 minutes
A short course of treatments may be required initially; the number of appointments and the amount of time between them will vary for each individual. Most people require 3 - 5 treatments initially, and then continue to attend for a check-up treatment approximately every 1 - 3 months. In addition, you may be given some stretching or muscle strengthening exercises to carry out at home, in order to aid recovery and help to prevent the same problem from reoccurring.
Initial appointment: 1 hour 30 min - £65
Follow-ups: 40 mins - £40

Ian: 'After suffering from lower back problems for many years my wife finally persuaded me to visit a chiropractor. Lianne identified the problem immediately and after gentle manipulation, I now have greater movement in the back and can get out of bed with ease in the morning!'
