Hands-On Approach

Chiropractic is derived from two Greek words "cheiros" (by means of the hand) and "praktikos" (practical). In keeping with our origins, at Chiropractic Plus we take a hands on approach to establishing the cause of your problems, providing practical solutions to not only treat pain, but provide longer term improvements. Chiropractors have to be registered to practice. We follow strict professional guidelines from both the General Chiropractic Council and British Chiropractic Association.

Chiropractic Plus Care Products

Throughout the three stages of Chiropractic Plus care, our experienced chiropractors may recommend or use specific products to help relieve pain and stiffness, fix the underlying problem and engage in corrective work to rehabilitate the body. We can also recommend aids to help you to maintain your improvement, prevent further recurrences and address health and lifestyle issues to produce the best possible chiropractic results. For more information on our products ask your chiropractor or at reception. You can also call our clinics at Haxby (01904 766966) or Pocklington (01759 303289), or complete our enquiry form.
