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.
Misalignment of the vertebrae or other bones can occur for many reasons, such as incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, childbirth, falls, stress, repetitive strain injuries and poor posture, and these conditions will all worsen over time if not corrected.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.
