Chiropractic for Me
Chiropractic is a primary health care profession focused on your health and wellbeing.
Emphasis is placed on the spine and the neuro-musculo-skeletal system and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and performance. Chiropractors do not use medicines or surgery and the gentle manual approaches we use are extremely safe and comfortable to receive.
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. Patients undergoing chiropractic care often report benefits from back, neck and general joint pain, headaches, sports injuries and many other conditions.
Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle advice.
Chiropractic students in the UK study for four to five years to gain their Integrated Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) degree. In the United Kingdom, chiropractors are Statutorily Regulated by the General Chiropractic Council (GCC)
The McTimoney Approach to Chiropractic
The McTimoney approach to chiropractic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago and is taught only at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, near Oxford. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care.
The gentle nature of chiropractic the McTimoney way makes it suitable for people throughout their lifetime from babyhood to those in later life.
Many graduates of the McTimoney College go on to develop special interests and attend further postgraduate training, so by using the search facility on this site, you can find a chiropractor near you who focuses on pregnancy, paediatric, sports or later life chiropractic care.
