What is chiropractic?
The World Health Organization defines chiropractic as: “A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the neuro-musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation.”
In Solihull and Sutton Coldfield we focus on analysing your posture (see our posture videos here, joints, muscles and ligaments together with the possible effects of your lifestyle. We particularly focus on the spine because it has a very large number of joints, muscles and ligaments and more importantly a large part of your nervous system passes through the spine.
What we do
At our clinics in Solihull and Sutton Coldfield we aim to restore normal healthy movement to your spinal joints. This means examining the spine to find segments that are not moving correctly, and trying to find the underlying cause before deciding what can be done. Often, this will involve chiropractic adjustments aimed at restoring normal movement. Exercises and advice are often given to our patients, so they can continue to help themselves achieve good spinal function. Together this is often effective in reducing our patients’ pain and discomfort that first brought them in to see us.

Your Nervous system
Your Nervous system is the master control system, it controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. It is responsible for the production of pain signals, movement, body temperature and more.
Chiropractors are concerned with the function of the nervous system. We know that every second millions of instructions flow from the brain, mostly down the spinal cord to everywhere in your body. Then signals are sent back to the brain in order to tell if the body is working correctly.
Our Chiropractors’ aim is to gently remove interference to the nervous system allowing the body to function at its full potential.
