Welcome to London Family Chiropractic, and to our website. As well as the information regarding our practice, we would like to explain a little about chiropractic in general; McTimoney chiropractic in particular.
Chiropractic has been proven to be an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain and immobility in various parts of the body, including the back, pelvis, neck and shoulder. It is a non-surgical and drug-free method of adjusting joints in the body in order to help achieve and maintain a healthy state. At London Family Chiropractic we use a method called McTimoney, with an emphasis on gentleness and holism. In addition to this, where we feel that muscle problems need to be addressed directly, various soft tissue release and sports massage techniques may be employed. For more information, please go to the chiropractic page on the site, and to find out what to expect at your first and subsequent visits to us, please see the treatment page, where there is also a video which further demonstrates and explains the method.
This is an ideal treatment for all the family, from children to their great-grandparents. The relatively gentle and holistic emphasis of the way we practice also lends itself perfectly to wellness care, and you certainly don’t have to be in acute pain to benefit from it. People often come to us because they feel out of alignment, or unstable. People who have had problems in the past, which have resolved, also seek treatment to maintain their healthy state.
Equally important, alongside treatment, is the postural and exercise advice given, which helps people to look after their bodies in the best way, in all aspects of their lives.
