Many people are aware of chiropractic but aren’t fully sure of what it entails. It’s the third largest type of healthcare in the UK and is used on a daily basis by thousands of people, not only as a recovery measure but a preventative one too.

During chiropractic, parts of the body become stimulated and this the body’s natural healing processes, thus speeding recovery.
