Nick Dowsett has been working as a McTimoney Chiropractor in West Wales for the past 20 years, and has been able to help thousands of people back to better health.

The McTimoney approach to chiropractic is based on a whole body assessment of the individual, concentrating not only on structural misalignments and subluxations, but also on their general well-being and quality of life. As the body works as a whole, it seems clear that it should be treated as a whole, and whilst it is certainly true that people usually seek relief from pain, the aim of a McTimoney chiropractor is to stimulate the body’s own self-healing mechanism and facilitate a return to optimum health.

The way this is achieved is through a series of fast, low-force adjustments of not only the spine, but also, unusually for most chiropractors, the sacrum, pelvis and the cranium. The arms and legs are also routinely mobilised at every treatment. This series of light re-balancing adjustments are very comfortable for the patient to receive, and mean that the approach is suitable for all age groups from the very young to the old and frail.

McTimoney chiropractors will always give postural advice to help adjustments hold, and to ensure that people know how to change the things they do, in order to minimise recurrences of problems in the future. X-rays are not routinely used, and McTimoney chiropractors rely on their finely tuned sense of touch to palpate subluxations in the spine.

“I feel this is the most sympathetic treatment for the body. Manipulation is never violent and always within the limits that the body will allow. I have always found this treatment to be effective, gentle and very good at allowing the body to gradually but securely, recover its natural balance and posture. I will always recommend it to others”

“My chiropractor is without doubt my “best friend”, he is able to keep me on my feet and in work without time off. It is hard to describe the peace of mind this gives me”

I have been very satisfied and pleased by the care and attention I have received from my practitioner. He has been very helpful and honest in his assessment of my aches and pains and in what he can and can’t do”
