About Chiropractic

About Chiropractic


Chiropractic is a drugless and non-surgical form of health care. Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the musculoskeletal system) and the problems associated with it caused by accident, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and everyday wear and tear.

Chiropractic is widely recognised as a key part of the healthcare system, with its emphasis on a holistic or whole-body approach in addition to a sound understanding of the medical and scientific implications of the work.

Chiropractors firmly believe in the proactive benefits of periodic chiropractic care which serves as a way of preventing potential problems and encourages good health.

Chiropractic for Animals

Like people, animals can also benefit from Chiropractic. Again, treatment is focused on addressing the root cause rather than merely addressing symptoms. With a history spanning over five decades, McTimoney-trained professionals have been offering their expertise to support a wide range of animals, including horses, dogs, cats, farm animals, and even some more exotic species.

Treatment requires the approval of the owner’s veterinary surgeon, and a growing number of vets now refer cases to McTimoney trained animal practitioners.

The College runs the only validated Master’s level programme teaching chiropractic techniques for animals, and as such is viewed as the premier programme of its kind in the world.
