South Quay Clinic

Chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunctions of the joints and their subsequent effects on the nervous system.

Chiropractors use their hands to adjust the joints of the spine and other parts of the body where evidence of restrictive movement is found. This treatment is referred to as an 'adjustment' or manipulation and aims to improve mobility and relieve pain. Once pressure is relieved from the nervous system, the body is better able to return to normal function and heal itself.

As well as helping resolve specific conditions, chiropractic treatment aims to prolong the healthy lifespan of the spine and counteract the inevitable 'wear and tear' processes apparent in aging and through repetitive actions or athletic activity.
