Chiropractor Frequently Asked Questions
Below I have assembled a number of questions I am frequently asked in my capacity as a professional Chiropractor. Hopefully these may be helpful. If the question you need answering is not amongst them, then please don't hesitate to contact me.
- What conditions do you treat?
I offer chiropractic treatment to wide variety of conditions, but most typically I treat symptoms associated with the back, spine, shoulders and neck, as well as headaches / migraines, sports injuries and general pain / discomfort.
- Does chiropractic treatment hurt?
McTimoney chiropractic is a gentle method of adjusting the bones in your body to improve the alignment of your skeleton.
- How many sessions will I need?
Typically between 2 and 6 treatments are needed, though sometimes a single visit is sufficient. Obviously a number of factors determine the frequency of treatments such as age, extent and durations of the problem, general fitness, etc.
- Is chiropractic safe?
Yes, McTimoney Chiropractic is gentle and non invasive.
- Is chiropractic treatment addictive? Will I need to return again and again?
No, certainly not. It is possible that a number of treatments may be required, but nothing in the McTimoney method is designed to induce life-long-treatment.
- Can I see a chiropractor if I'm pregnant?
Obviously it's important to tell your chiropractor if you believe you're pregnant, but yes, you can still receive treatment.
- Can children be treated?
McTimoney Chiropractic is suitable for people of ALL ages.
