Chiropractic & Soft Tissue Massage

The McTimoney Method of Chiropractic

The McTimoney method was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages.

Chiropractic treatment aims to adjust the bones of your body to improve skeletal alignment. A misalignment can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress, and poor posture. This can lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.

Jemma combines chiropractic treatment with soft tissue massage to improve relief of pain due to muscle tension, damage or scarring. This treatment can also help relieve restrictions due to ligament or tendon damage, or damage to the soft tissues of the joints.

What happens during my visits?

 

On your first visit Jemma will take a full history of your current problem and any previous conditions, and then with your permission conduct a thorough physical examination to assess the problem and your general health. Jemma will talk to you about what she finds, the best treatments, how long recovery will take and any possible complications.

 

She will make adjustments using the light, dextrous McTimoney technique, and apply soft tissue massage. These treatments may be confined to the affected area, but often cover much of the body, as many body parts may be involved in a problem. You should allow 60-90 minutes for this.

Further treatments, if required, follow a similar pattern but tend to concentrate more on the specific problems being treated, so these sessions take 30-60 minutes.

 

Sometimes during an examination Jemma may find a problem that needs medical intervention, or further investigation such as x-ray or MRI, so she may ask you to see your GP

Donít forget chiropractic treatment can benefit pets & horses too. If you want to know more, try Anna Wells MSc, BSc(Hons) from equinecaninetherapy.co.uk
