McTimoney Chiropractic Technique

At Alpha Chiropractic Clinic, we will tailor the correct chiropractic technique to suit your treatment needs and preferences. We can offer a lighter chiropractic technique known toggle recoil technique, which is very similar to McTimoney chiropractic technique.

Where on the body can it be used?

The upper cervical spine is one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine. Even subtle changes here can have whole-body effects. Because of its importance, this special adjusting technique has evolved, producing positive results for a variety of health problems.  At Alpha Chiropractic Clinic we use toggle recoil technique effectively throughout the whole body. It is an alternative treatment technique to diversified adjusting. Basically, when use throughout the whole musculoskeletal system this technique is pretty much the same as McTimoney Technique.

Comfortable and Relaxed

After a thorough examination revealing the relationship between the skull and the two uppermost bones of the spine, you’ll be positioned comfortably on our adjusting table, usually lying on your side. The more relaxed you are, the more effective your adjustment.

Ultra Quick

Then, we use our hands to deliver a super-fast thrust to the upper bones of your spine. Experience suggests that the best results are obtained with the greatest speed and the lightest force possible. Once the energy is delivered to your spine, my hands are quickly removed from the contact point so as not to interfere with the natural recoil of your spine.

Your Body Does the Adjustment!

The wisdom of your body uses this energy to “reset” the relationship between the spinal segments and your head. All I do is give your body a precise nudge, which allows your body to “right itself” into a more normal pattern. Health can return as the neurological insults are reduced.
