Personalized Care and Guidance

Chiropractic is a natural approach to health and wellbeing and focuses on the body's ability to heal itself
and adapt to the environment.     
We aim to empower people to be able to move more comfortably and to feel more healthy and happy. 
The techniques we use are based on our clinical judgement and years of experience.

Why Chiropractic?

The purpose of a spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into the joint that has become restricted in movement.This manipulation or adjustment of the affected joint and surrounding soft tissue restores mobility, easing pain and muscle tightness allowing the body to repair.  These misalignments of the spinal joints affect the feedback into the nervous system and brain which regulates how well how body and mind cope with our environment and its many unconscious decisions.  Pain and lack of movement in the body impairs our response to stress, creates muscle tightness and imbalance, often affects our co-ordination and balance, reduces our vitality, lowering energy levels, focus and concentration.

A variety of techniques to suit each person can be used based on our clinical judgement and years of experience.  We use a Thompson table and toggle recoil, a light force Activator instrument for children and also adults, gonstead, manual and instrument adjustments of extremities, and gentle cranial work. 
We can also give life style, food, rehabilitation exercises and supplement suggestions to optimise the body's healing capacity.
