OUR TECHNIQUE

Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a healthcare system, based on the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially those of the spinal column, which cause dysfunction by affecting the nerves, which control both muscles and organs.

At HEALTH SHAK, our Chiropractor uses a range of techniques to help reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility. They use their hands to relieve problems with the bones, muscles and joints. This will usually involve some spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), in combination with soft tissue work (STW), such as stretching or massage.

We may also incorporate Advanced BioStructural Correction™ or Applied Kinesiology as part of your treatment programme, depending on your condition.
