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 functions of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation. (Definition by World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001)

Chiropractors focus on the relationship between your body’s structure and function and how that in turn affects optimal health. By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system chiropractors can play a major part in relieving disorders arising from accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, and everyday wear and tear that happens to us all. Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.

We provide care for patients of all ages, who present with a range of acute and chronic conditions. As well as advice about self-help, exercise, diet and lifestyle, chiropractors provide support for pain management, sports injuries and active rehabilitation. An integrated and holistic approach is taken to the health needs of patients, considering physical, psychological and social factors.

The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment is supported by research as well as by various UK government and medical organisations. Patients see chiropractors in a private capacity either through self referral or as a result of a referral from their GP, other doctor or health professional. We also treat people who are seeking treatment through private health insurers.
