What Is McTimoney Chiropractic?
The McTimoney method of chiropractic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago and is taught only at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, near Oxford. It is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages from babies to very elderly people. It is also suitable for sports injuries and during pregnancy.
McTimoney chiropractic has helped thousands of people for over 50 years and around 150,000 new patients consult a McTimoney Chiropractor each year. Over 8000 people are cared for by McTimoney Chiropractors each working day (www.mctimoneychiropractic.org, 2011).
Chiropractors at Hiltingbury Chiropractic use the McTimoney method.
Evidence For Chiropractic
In June 2009 the General Chiropractic Council commissioned a review of the evidence base for advertised claims made by chiropractors across a very wide range of conditions. On 25 February 2010 the Effectiveness of manual therapies: the UK evidence report by Gert Bronfort et al was published by the journal Chiropractic & Osteopathy. Commentaries accompanying the report by Professor Scott Haldeman and Professor Martin Underwood were published by Chiropractic & Osteopathy. This report can be found at www.gcc-uk.org.
