Chiropractor? What do they do?
A Chiropractor is a practitioner who uses their hands to help relieve problems with the bones, muscles and joints. Chiropractic is the treatment of the neck, spine and pelvis. It is a technique that improves posture and aids injury recovery.
At our Chiropractor Clinic in Paignton near Torquay, Torbay, all our Chiropractors are fully trained and highly skilled in diagnosing, managing, preventing, and treating the musculoskeletal system. A range of techniques is used to reduce pain and improve function and mobility of the individual. Alongside the physical treatment, chiropractors can advise on exercises and lifestyle changes.
Chiropractors improve good health
Poor posture such as slouching, giving birth and injuries put pressure on our nerves reducing signals to our muscles leading to fatigue and pain. Strengthening your posture can often lead to an improved sense of wellbeing.
Finding the true source of the problem rather than treating a symptom
McTimoney Chiropractors are graduates of McTimoney College Chiropractic. The college bases its training on a particular technique developed by a chiropractor called John McTimoney. Their technique is quite distinctive, and their main tool is a specific type of adjustment that doesn’t cause the audible popping or cracking sound. It is very gentle and involves a flicking motion on specific joints within the spine. Treatments involve safe, gentle, yet effective non-bone clicking movements. The aim is accuracy rather than force, making these techniques as effective as possible.
