Chiropractic is a primary care medical profession which takes a manual approach to preventing, diagnosing and treating mechanical conditions of the neuro-muscular-skeletal system, particularly the spine, and their consequences.
Problems with this system often translate as discomfort, pain, and difficulty with movement, and concern such conditions as lumbago, neck pain, headaches, sprains, tendonitis…
Our approach is a holistic one and is based on the relationship between the spine, the nervous system and certain health issues.
And takes into account the faculties of recovery of the body.
It allows us to target the cause and to treat it using precise and painless manipulations of the spine and joints, called "adjustments".
Chiropractic suggests regular adjustments (3-4 sessions per year) to maintain the proper functioning of the nervous system to maintain the ability of resistance and adaptation of the body to daily professional and family stress.
Chiropractic is recommended for all ages. However certain professions or sports can result in an “overuse” of joints, muscles and tendons and the adoption of unhelpful movements and postures.
Chiropractic can help the whole family!
