Ilkley Chiropractic Clinic

We provide person centred chiropractic care. Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that arise as a result of problems with joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine. Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm in conjunction with massage, soft tissue work. The use of exercises to improve the function of the injured tissue is paramount to chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
