Chiropractic was founded in 1895, in the USA, by Daniel David Palmer but is now a much more diverse therapy than its origins. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body.

The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and the nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and the organs throughout the body.

A common interference to the nervous system is the 24 moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of the controlling nerve impulses.


Chiropractic is the science of locating offending spinal structures, the art of reducing their impact to the nervous system, and the philosophy of natural care based on your inborn potential to be healthy.


This interaction has significant effects on many aspects of health and well-being ranging from:


  • Our capacity to be pain free
  • To have greater freedom of movement and strength
  • Increased alertness


Most chiropractic techniques work directly with the body providing adjustments to bones and/or specific parts of muscles, tendons and reflex areas of the body.


What do Chiropractors do?


Helping to restore proper spinal biomechanics and improved nervous system function begins with a case history. This gives the Chiropractor a background about your health, such as surgeries, accidents, the onset of your condition, and other details affecting your current health.


After reviewing your history and discussing your specific problem, thorough orthopedic, neurological, and Chiropractic examination is performed. X-rays may be requested to uncover structural and or functional problems related to your condition. These examinations help identify areas of spinal malfunction and resulting nervous system deficit.

The findings of these examinations are explained and a plan of treatment is recommended. Progress is monitored with periodical examinations.


Dr Ian Niven

Methods used by Dr Niven range from gentle tapping and muscle relaxation to firm release of heavily contracted tissues according to individual needs. Adjustments are done when diagnostically indicated and agreed to and may be very gentle or firm according to each person’s needs. 


As part of a comprehensive health care program, these techniques benefit all who need them ranging from the very young to the very old.  Treatments vary with the individual. Every client presents a uniquely different spinal pattern therefore each client’s problem is evaluated and an indivudual treatment plan is developed.
