Within the Chiropractic profession there are numerous sub-specialties and varying techniques which practitioners can choose to use or become certified in. One of these is McTimoney Chiropractor technique which is quite unknown amongst Australian practitioners. A McTimoney Chiropractor practices with a gentle yet highly effective full body focus to address skeletal dysfunction.
The typical spinal manipulative therapy that people have become accustomed to when visiting traditional Chiropractors is rather rare for a McTimoney Chiropractor. This is because McTimoney Chiropractic aims to use specificity and speed to address problematic areas. The ending result from this is clients enjoying a different approach which is usually more comfortable and tolerable.
What Problems Can A McTimoney Chiropractor Assist With?
Chiropractors qualified in McTimoney technique are able to assist with musculoskeletal complaints that affect any area of the body. While your spine and pelvis is the foundation of your body, we also pay particular attention to the extremities which may demonstrate compensatory changes. Problems that Chiropractic management is effective for include:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Spinal stiffness
- Certain types of headaches and migraines
- General muscle aches
- Traumatic whiplash injuries
- Sports injuries
- Sciatica and disc pathology
- And much more!
Is McTimoney Technique Appropriate For You?
McTimoney technique is appropriate for individuals of all age groups. Individuals who prefer a more gentle approach to their Chiropractic care usually benefit from McTimoney technique the most.
Essentially, the key point of difference between a traditional Chiropractor and a McTimoney Chiropractor is the style of treatment that they wish to use on their clients. McTimoney Chiropractic technique is just one of many technique which you can expect to receive within our Chiropractic office. If you wish to receive a certain style of care, please be sure to discuss these needs with your Chiropractor prior to your consultation.
