A chiropractic adjustment is a specific, controlled force is a precise direction that is applied to a joint that is not moving properly. The purpose of the adjustment is to correct alignment and restore correct movement to the joint.

Just on my second session with Yvonne and I’m no longer crying in pain every morning. My only regret is not going to her sooner. Can’t recommend her enough!
Yvonne helped me so much in the space of 4 weeks. I went to see her with a lower back injury which was causing me pain and major discomfort. After the first session I felt relief and could see the improvements instantly. Yvonne is welcoming, kind and a highly skilled chiropractor. I definitely recommend!
Yvonne is a miracle worker! Such a different Chiropractic experience – she listens and takes time to ensure you are fully corrected before leaving. I’m in my second pregnancy with a recent back injury and she is working wonders. My first pregnancy with SPD (no chiropractic work) , I was in a lot of pain and barely able to walk. This pregnancy I have a huge amount of mobility that I didn’t have before allowing me to work, be mobile and pain free – with my SPD coming on earlier and stronger than my first pregnancy. Thank you Yvonne!
I just can’t express with words what Yvonne has done for me. She has given me my life back, literally! I am now a healthier and happier person thanks to her. Over 3 years ago I was in a car crash that damaged my neck. Since then I have had neck pain that I kind of learnt to live with. Last December the pain started getting worse and worse, it would travel down my arms all the way to my hands. Then my lower back and hips started getting at me and pain eventually travelled down all the way to my feet too.. I am 31 years old so I was quite concern about this. I visited two different doctors who would tell me I was ok, that I should just wait.. I had been going to physio sessions in a different center, these had been quite useful but unfortunately not enough for me – pain would always come back. One day I decided to try a chiropractor and lucky me I came across Yvonne! I really really can’t express with words the relief I felt just right after the first session, I was able to move my neck in a way I hadn’t been able for the past 3 years. She was also really informative and finally gave me an answer to what was wrong with me! Now, after just two weeks the pain has reduced quite significantly everywhere but more importantly, I can now do those little mundane things that before would cause me a lot of pain. I am super confident I will fully recover from this, which is something I never thought would be possible. I am now also seeing Ellen, who is giving me strength exercises. She is also really lovely, shows me exactly how to do them and makes sure I do them properly. Thank you to Ellen too! If you are reading this, do not think it twice and do pay Yvonne and her team a visit. You will not regret it! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Yvonne is THE best chiropractor I have attended….she was highly recommended by a friend & I can see why! I’ve been plagued with back pain for years and now I am pain-free!! Yvonne is so positive, well-informed & very clever in her holistic approach…an amazing practitioner.
What a game changer, Yvonne is an amazing Chiropractor. When I started with Yvonne I Was in agony with my back and feet after walking 500 meters, shopping was a nightmare and I put it all down to being overweight but how wrong was I. Within 3/4 sessions I was a completely different person, I am walking pain free 4/5 kilometres a day and have gone back spinning and enjoying a pain free life. My only regret is that I waited so long to make that first appointment.
I have actually been a client of Yvonne’s for over 5 years. I had damaged my back through years of playing rugby and working as an industrial electrician. When I met her for the first time the level of care and professionalism shown were second to none. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my back.
During times of COVID -19, the team at Head 2 Toe seem to have maintained a very high standard and a clean work area. They also have all the barriers in place to mitigate the risk of the virus spreading, and as a patient, it felt like a safe area to be treated. Having had some issues with my back I decided to go and try to get it fixed or at least worked on, I was heading offshore working so I wanted to have it looked at in short notice which I really appreciated, and thank God I did the relief is fantastic, didn’t realise what my body had become used to living with. I Would highly recommend going to Head 2 Toe to anyone with any Pain as the team there really know what they are doing.
Fantastic chiropractor! I had suffered from severe back pain for years and could barely exercise. Within 3 visits to Yvonne I have been literally pain free since and am now a regular gym goer. Yvonne is extremely professional and talented at what she does. Head2toe chiropractic is a fantastic practice with a lovely clean relaxed atmosphere. Any time I have visited I have been seen on time which is fantastic. Highly recommend!!
I attended this clinic when I was heavily pregnant and was delighted with it. Yvonne was professional and made me feel very comfortable at all times. I felt great afterwards, loose and ache free. I highly recommend it.
