Chiropractic from the meaning 'done by hands' is a way of adjusting bones in the body to improve the alignment of the skeleton which helps the nervous system work more efficiently by restoring it's function. Chiropractic care aims to restore the body's natural balance by realigning the bones to relive pain and discomfort associated with the misalignment of bones and also to increase the mobility of the body.
Your spinal column is made up of 24 vertebrae plus the sacrum and coccyx. Throughout the spinal column, nerves exit directly from the spinal cord which is an extension of the brain. It transmits information to your body from the brain. If there is a blockage in the spinal nerves due to the vertebrae becoming misaligned then the body will not function correctly where that nerve supplies. Chiropractic acts to restore this function by manipulation of these bones.
A misalignment such as these can occur for many reasons, the most common being, incorrect lifting, poor posture, car or sporting accidents, falls and stress. The McTimoney chiropractor Laura Rigby no longer practices from Wokingham Therapy Clinic. Instead we have Colin Smith, a well-known and experienced chiropractor who practices general chiropractic and is registered with the registered with the general chiropractic council.
Dr Colin Smith
Colin's interest in chiropractic care stemmed from his positive response to chiropractic treatment. In 1996 after spending his early working life in the construction industry, he decided on a career change. Colin graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in 2001 with an Honors degree in Human Science and a Masters in Chiropractic.>
Since graduating he has worked as an associate in a number of chiropractic clinics throughout the South, gaining valuable experience on the way and has practiced in Wokingham for several years and use to work at the Wokingham Chiropractic Centre. Due to his own medical history Colin has a special interest in digestive complaints, often being able to suggest dietary supplements that can aid in the resolution of these complaints.
Colin uses a combination of spinal adjustments together with soft tissue release thereby relieving pain within the body.
Colin likes to spend time with his patients, unlike other chiropractors in the area, who only give you 15 minutes and make you feel like you're on a conveyor belt.
