What is McTimoney Chiropractic?

McTimoney chiropractic is a gentle style of chiropractic that uses light, fast movements to adjust the bones of the body. It aims to improve the alignment of the skeleton and ensure that the body’s nerve supply works efficiently. Through subtle adjustments, McTimoney treatment may relieve pain and discomfort, increase mobility and provide a route to better health.

Can McTimoney help me?

The gentle nature of McTimoney makes it suitable for people of all ages including young children, pregnant women and the elderly. Studies have shown that chiropractic can be helpful for a range of conditions including low back pain, neck pain and joint pain, migraine and cervicogenic headaches.

How is McTimoney different?

Rather than relying on a few ‘big’ moves, the McTimoney method aims to address the whole body and achieves its effects by an accumulation of many small adjustments. The McTimoney chiropractor aims to check and, if necessary, adjust almost every joint in the skeleton at every visit. There is no twisting of the body into uncomfortable positions and no ‘gapping’ of the joints. People are often surprised to find an effective treatment that is so relaxing and enjoyable.

Is this just a ‘gentle treatment for gentle folk’?

Despite its gentle approach, McTimoney can be effective for all sorts of problems. Builders, labourers and others engaged in heavy manual work have benefitted from treatment at the Peterborough clinic; along with football and rugby players and others engaged in arduous sports.

Appointments

£51 for the first visit (60 minutes – including consultation and treatment), £41 for subsequent visits (20 minutes). Typically, the chiropractor will recommend weekly visits for the first four  appointments. Many people will see real changes and improvements in those four visits, others will need more. The total number of visits required will depend on the condition, how long you have had it and how you respond to the treatment. Regular reviews are conducted to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefit possible. Once a problem has been resolved, regular check-ups are recommended to help keep your spine and other joints functioning properly. You are free to stop or resume treatment at any time.

Peterborough man David Hallam is a 2004 graduate of the Chiropractic Degree Course at the McTimoney Chiropractic College in Abingdon, Oxfordshire and has worked with chiropractor Tyler Tx for many years. He is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and undertakes regular professional development training to keep his skills and practice up-to-date. He also holds qualifications in massage and sports massage.
