Charles Robottom takes an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of his patients, considering physical, psychological, nutritional and social factors.
Chiropractors focus on the spinal column which acts as a superhighway connecting the brain to the body, they look at how the whole body works (Biomechanics) and use physical therapies to help the body return to balance. Chiropractic care restores full function to the neuro-musculoskeletal system, thereby reducing pain and disability.
Charles uses gentle chiropractic adjustments that are controlled and specific, and may range from spinal manipulation to very gentle cranial work and other release techniques depending on your complaint. The techniques will free up the interference on your spine, joints, nerves and muscles to get them working again.
Most complaints are usually a result of a series of compensations that have often built up over years, therefore treatment is directed at the whole person and the chain reaction of problems. It may take some weeks to back track through these compensations, releasing and rebalancing the body, but it may be quicker, and depends on what you do between treatments!
Chiropractic is suitable for all ages and needs
Athletes use chiropractic care as core part of any training regime as it Helps avoid injury, Increases peak performance and aids a full recovery and prepares for the next challenge.

Not only did these runners recover quickly, seven of them actually scored “personal best” performances while under Chiropractic care.
