Our Chiropractic team at Total Therapy Christchurch

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.

Joining the Total Therapy team was a great step forward in achieving a fully integrated approach to optimum rehabilitation and recovery.

Understanding Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Treatment FAQs

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a regulated primary health care profession. Chiropractors train for a minimum of four years and are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent conditions of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints and muscles), as well as the effect these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health.

Chiropractic is suitable for all, from birth to the elderly and from pregnant ladies to athletes.
