Your sports and family chiropractor
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a treatment method concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. Chiropractic means, 'done by hand' and as the name suggests, is a treatment method focusing on manual techniques.
What conditions do chiropractors treat?
Chiropractors treat a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, from headaches, neck pain and lower back pain to sciatica and pains of the shoulders, arms, hips and legs. Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all, from babies and pregnant women to the elderly and from office-workers to sportsmen.
