What to expect from your first session
Your McTimoney chiropractor will first assess your general health, previous conditions and existing symptoms. He or she will then conduct a physical examination to locate the problem, during which time your chiropractor will make adjustments using the light, dextrous, techniques associated with the McTimoney technique. If at any point your chiropractor discovers or suspects a condition that requires medical intervention, they will refer you to your GP for further tests. Normally your first visit can last anything between 30 minutes and an hour. During this time, a chiropractor will:
Take a full case history, assessing your general health, previous conditions, and existing symptoms
Ask your permission to conduct a thorough physical examination (this will include neurological and orthopaedic tests, if necessary)
Refer you for x-rays if they are needed
Make adjustments using the light, dextrous techniques associated with the McTimoney technique
In some instances your chiropractor may need to ask you to remove some clothing. Privacy and a gown are always provided but do tell you chiropractor if you feel uncomfortable about undressing.
How many sessions will I need?
Most people find between two and six sessions sufficient to address straight forward problems. The number and frequency of treatments will depend on a number of factors including:
Extent of injury
Stress (muscle tension and stress on your nervous system)
The anticipated number of sessions will be discussed with you prior to treatment. Once you're up and running you can choose to schedule regular check-ups a few times a year to keep chronic conditions under control.
The McTimoney Method

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.
