Why you need a Chiropractor
Do you think you need a Chiropractor but are unsure how chiropractic treatment works and why it is so effective? No problems; we’re happy to explain.
In essence, chiropractic addresses restrictions in motion within the musculoskeletal system. That means helping the body move and function how it’s designed to, and helping to alleviate pain. The bones and muscles have a very close relationship with the nerves. For this reason, gentle chiropractic treatment is especially good for improving conditions that relate to the nervous system. Unlike conventional medicine, which treats the symptoms of aches and pains, chiropractic care treats the underlying causes. Whether it’s a stiff neck or a ‘clicky’ joint, chiropractic care gets to the heart of the problem.

Of course, no two patients are the same, so Dr Tracy uses different techniques for each one. When you come and see her, she’ll assess you thoroughly and tailor a treatment to your individual needs. It’s all about finding out what’s right for you.
