What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic looks at posture and alignment and how it affects wellbeing, movement and ease of function in daily life. Our day-to-day activities, poor posture, accidents and illness may cause discomfort, stiffness and inhibition of natural movement.

At the Suilven Centre we use the McTimoney Technique

It is the gentleness of the technique and the treatment of the whole body that distinguishes the McTimoney Method from other manipulative therapies. 

The McTimoney Method of Chiropractic is named after its originator John McTimoney who developed this gentle, whole body approach from existing Chiropractic techniques. 

People all over the country have come for McTimoney Method of Chiropractic treatments for over 45 years.

A survey revealed that 89% of people undergoing McTimoney Chiropractic are very or extremely satisfied with their treatment (MCA, Patient Survey, 2004).

What will happen on your first consultation?

Your Chiropractor will discuss what your objectives for treatment are. A full body alignment evaluation and session will follow.

How many consultations?

This depends on many factors that include:

  1.   How long you have had symptoms 

  2.   How old you are and your general health

  3.   Other life circumstances

Individual treatment plans are created according to the needs and objectives of the client.

Who can be treated?

This gentle process is suitable for most people. Contact your local Chiropractor to discuss your situation.

The consultation process is designed to indicate if it is appropriate to refer someone for medical screening.

Chiropractic does not involve the use of drugs or surgery.  It originated in 1895 in the USA and is one of the largest healthcare professions in the world.
