How does it work?
Your spinal column is made up of 24 movable vertebrae, the sacrum, and the coccyx. This column houses the spinal cord through which nerve information is transmitted around the rest of your body.
Whilst the spinal column maintains correct alignment, nerve information is passed accurately. However, if any part of your spinal column becomes misaligned then a nerve may become impinged, compressed, or stretched, distorting the information that passes along it. This can lead to pain, discomfort, or restricted mobility.
McTimoney chiropractors use only their hands to make adjustments to the bones of your body. The key to the success of the adjustments is in the speed, dexterity and accuracy with which they are performed.
