At TPM Chiropractic Care we have segmented our Chiropractic treatment into 3 categories


  • Muscle activation, muscle tension, muscle spasms, muscle pains and aches, muscle stiffness, muscle strength and muscle weakness


  • Assisting in enhancing the connectivity and nerve signals that are transmitted between the brain and body. We work towards allowing the body to heal faster as the body can control and coordinate the healing more effectively and efficiently.
  • When you have pain, your body doesn’t actually work well


  • Assisting in the correction of misalignments, imbalances, joint restrictions, grinding,  ‘shifted’ bones, ‘slipped’ discs (disc protrusions), Scoliosis and forward head postures
  • At TPM we work closely with different athletes who need different adjustments, different workout routines, different recovery sessions, different muscles and different treatment. Every Chiropractic treatment at TPM is different.

In today’s fast-paced world, people are increasingly seeking natural and holistic approaches to healthcare. Chiropractic care has emerged as a popular alternative that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, primarily related to the spine.

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive healthcare practice that centers around the belief that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. It is primarily focused on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors utilize manual adjustment techniques and other therapies to restore proper spinal alignment, alleviate pain, and improve overall wellness.

Core Principles of Chiropractic Care

a. Spinal Alignment: Chiropractic care emphasises the importance of spinal alignment. Misalignments, known as subluxations, can interfere with the nervous system’s functioning, leading to pain, discomfort, and various health issues. Chiropractors employ spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments, promoting optimal nervous system function.

b. Holistic Approach: Chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to healthcare, considering the body as a whole. Chiropractors focus not only on treating symptoms but also on identifying and addressing the root cause of the problem. By addressing the underlying issues, chiropractic care aims to improve overall health and well-being.

c. Drug-Free and Non-Invasive: Unlike traditional medical approaches, chiropractic care emphasises drug-free and non-invasive methods. Chiropractors rely on manual adjustments, therapeutic exercises, lifestyle modifications, and other natural therapies to promote healing and restore balance in the body.

Conditions Treated by Chiropractors

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Some common conditions that can benefit from chiropractic care include:

a. Back Pain: Chiropractors are well-known for their expertise in treating back pain, including lower back pain, upper back pain, and sciatica. Through spinal adjustments and other therapies, chiropractic care can help alleviate pain and restore mobility.

b. Neck Pain: Chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic techniques can effectively relieve neck pain caused by muscle tension, poor posture, or whiplash injuries. By restoring proper alignment and relieving muscle tension, chiropractic care can provide relief and improve neck mobility.

c. Headaches and Migraines: Many headaches and migraines are linked to tension in the neck and spine. Chiropractic care can help identify and correct these underlying issues, reducing the frequency and severity of headaches.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care offers several benefits that go beyond pain relief. These include:

a. Improved Joint Function: Chiropractic adjustments enhance joint mobility and flexibility, allowing for better overall function.

b. Enhanced Nervous System Function: By addressing subluxations, chiropractic care improves nervous system function, benefiting the body’s communication systems.

c. Increased Energy and Vitality: Proper spinal alignment and improved nervous system function can boost energy levels and promote overall vitality.

d. Prevention and Wellness: Regular chiropractic care can help prevent future injuries and maintain overall wellness by addressing underlying issues and promoting optimal body function.

Chiropractic care is a natural and holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the body’s ability to heal itself. By addressing spinal misalignments and promoting proper nervous system function, chiropractic care can alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being. If you’re seeking a drug-free and non-invasive healthcare option, chiropractic care may be an excellent choice for you.
