Chiropractic is the third largest health profession in the world. It is is a straightforward method of adjusting the bones of your body to maintain the correct alignment of your spine and extremities and to ensure your body’s nerve supply works efficiently. Through subtle adjustments, this treatment can relieve pain and discomfort, increase mobility and provide a route to better health.
Chiropractic at balance
Our Chiropractors Caroline Arnott, Alan MacInnes, Morna Dodd and John Paul Taylor use a gentle technique called McTimoney Chiropractic and are registered with the General Chiropractic Council. McTimoney Chiropractors use their hands to make adjustments to the bones of your body, and the key to the success of these adjustments is the speed, dexterity and accuracy with which they are performed. This speed means that less force is required, thus making it a gentle treatment to receive.
