McTimoney Chiropractic

McTimoney is a form of chiropractic that uses a particularly gentle but effective technique to adjust the bones of the spine to open up nerve pathways and allow the body to begin to heal itself naturally.

It takes its name from John McTimoney, who in the 1950's
sought treatment from a chiropractor for a damaged arm. He was so impressed with his treatment that he decided to study the method, and quickly became a talented Chiropractor. He began to experiment with the technique, refining the movements and incorporating the whole body into a treatment, and established The McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Oxford in 1972.

McTimoney Chiropractors complete a five year Batchelor of Science degree in Chiropractic to become Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) and are registered with the General Chiropractic Council.

What to expect from a McTimoney treatment

McTimoney Chiropractors take a holistic (whole body) approach and 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.

Your McTimoney chiropractor will always start a treatment by taking a full case history, with many questions on past accidents, falls, injuries and illnesses. The practitioner will examine, by hand, the bones and joints of the body to check for any imbalances - however subtle they may be. The method used for correcting an imbalance is called the toggle-recoil, which is used to change the tension surrounding a joint - it is not a forced movement but rather a rapid thrust followed by an immediate release.

The treatment is relatively gentle to receive as it uses the natural elasticity of tendons to help relieve muscle tension. The extreme gentleness of the technique means it is suitable for babies through to the elderly.
