Are you in pain? We can help.
A chiropractor can help people of any age, shape or size, from a newborn baby to the elderly.
If left unchecked, a minor accident or injury can lead to a lifetime of pain and suffering. With gentle adjustment techniques, chiropractic can restore your natural balance, posture and movement, releasing irritated nerves (commonly referred to as ‘pinched’ or ‘trapped’ nerves), relaxing muscle spasms and allowing your body to get on with recovery.
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, it is the master control system of the entire body. The brain sends and receives messages to and from the body allowing it to perform all its daily functions.
The spine and skull are a protective mechanism designed to shield the body’s most vital organs – the brain and the spinal cord. If the spinal bones, also known as vertebrae, are out of alignment it can create an interference between the brain and the body which can lead to many forms of body dysfunction and potentially pain.
These spinal misalignments (also known as subluxations or joint restrictions) may not always cause pain but will negatively effect the way in which the body functions. Misalignments are usually caused by stresses on the body. These stresses are typically physical, chemical or emotional.
Examples of stresses include:
Physical – a fall, poor posture, growth disorders, pelvic imbalance.
Chemical – ranging from a poor diet to toxins such as caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, drugs.
Emotional – personal or work stress.
Chiropractic adjustments remove joint restrictions to align the spine and optimise the flow of nerve messages between the brain and the body allowing for maximum health and wellbeing.

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, specific spinal manipulation. This improves the movement to the posterior joints of the spine reducing stress on the local joint receptors – called proprioceptors, this improved movement at the joint reduces the joint pain and muscle spasm. This process is called an Adjustment.
Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may also use a variety of other techniques including, stretches, massage, dry needling and home exercises. You may also be given advice about posture and lifestyle.
It has given me effective treatment from continued long standing back pain, with regular treatment the problem has not reoccurred.A Google User
A friend said I should see a chiropractor about my back pain. It was one of the best moves I ever made. After just one treatment my back felt better. By the end of the course the pain had almost gone completely. Matthew has done wonders.
