Highlands Family Chiropractic: Techniques & Services

Dr Peter Burt (Chiropractor) uses a range of chiropractic techniques in his practice and whether these are used alone or in combination depends on your personal needs, as all care is tailored to your requirements.

As part of your care, you may also receive therapeutic massage, offered by our massage therapist, and nutritional advice is additionally available to all clients. However, before you receive a course of chiropractic therapy, diagnostic tools are used to take objective measurements, so that your progress can be accurately assessed.
