Chiropractic Christchurch

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession, regulated by the GCC.  Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system – that’s bones, joints and muscles – as well as the effect these disorders have on the nervous system and general health.

Individual Treatment Plans

Here at Total Therapy, our Chiropractors use a wide range of techniques to suit their patients from babies to elderly… there is a way to help everyone. Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine and body that are not moving properly. As well as this, we use acupuncture, soft tissue work, rehab and advice about posture and lifestyle.

If you are unsure if Chiropractic can be of any help to you, why not book in for a FREE 15-minute consultation with one of our team. If we cannot help, we will be sure to give you our best advice and point you in the right direction of somebody who can.

Our Team

Our chiropractor Rick Barton has been involved in therapy and injury rehabilitation since 1993 while serving as a physical training instructor in the British Army. He retrained as a chiropractor in 2001 and has been working locally since graduation.

He has forged valuable links with local GP’s, physiotherapists and specialist consultants to ensure there is a trusted network of referral available to his patients.
