McTimoney Chiropractic is a low force chiropractic technique, which uses gentle, fast, light adjustments to mobilise and realign the joints of the body, with particular emphasis on the spine and pelvis.
McTimoney is a precise and gentle treatment. No large twisting manoeuvres are used and the technique avoids any sharp turning of the neck.
Chiropractic has been proven in clinical trials to be effective in relieving low back pain, and can relieve the pain of upper back and neck problems, as well as many other conditions.
Chiropractors train for five years to achieve a Masters level qualification (MSc) and must be registered with the statutory regulatory body (the GCC) in order to practice.

What to expect at a session
When you visit a chiropractor at Tillow Barn you will have already completed an online questionnaire (sent to you by email), which will have given your chiropractor a good idea of your history and what has prompted you to seek treatment. At the start of your session your chiropractor will usually ask a few more questions to clarify the questionnaire. They will usually take your blood pressure and will then assess you, using gentle range of motion testing and, if needed, some orthopaedic and neurological tests.
You will then be asked to lie on the treatment couch, where your chiropractor will assess your joints, including your spine and pelvis, and use light gentle adjustments, some of which are specific to the McTimoney technique, to mobilise and align your skeletal framework. McTimoney Chiropractic does not aim to 'crack' or 'pop' the joints in the way that some other treatment modalities do. Some people prefer the McTimoney technique for this reason as they feel it is a more comfortable experience. Our chiropractors will also often use soft tissue massage techniques and medical acupuncture alongside chiropractic adjustments where they feel this will benefit you.
Patients at this clinic need on average three or four sessions to resolve their initial presenting problem. It is unusual to need any more than six sessions to resolve an issue and some take only one or two. Our chiropractors spend at least half an hour with you at each session and they will discuss how many sessions they feel you might need before your treatment commences.
