What is Chiropractic?
 
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chiropractic is a health profession that deals
with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuro-musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and / or joint manipulation, with a particular focus on subluxations.

The concepts and principles that distinguish and differentiate the philosophy of chiropractic from other health professions are of great importance to most chiropractors and deeply influence the attitude and the approach of these in relation to health care.

The relationship between the structure, particularly the spine and musculoskeletal system, and the function, especially coordinated by the nervous system is the essence of chiropractic and your approach to the restoration and preservation of health.

The practice of chiropractic emphasizes the conservative treatment of neuro-musculo-skeletal system, without the use of drugs and surgical procedures. Biopsychosocial causes and consequences are also significant factors in the management of patients.

Our services are targeted at people who want to re-do things they like to do with their family and friends. Most of our patients do not consult us because they are in pain, they come because their pain is the health problem that is affecting life in a negative way, preventing them from performing important things like work, work out, relate with family and friends etc.
What chiropractic treats?
 
 
 
Chiropractic is a manual therapy technique created in the United States by Dr. Daniel David Palmer. It is recognized by the WHO, and scientifically proven, with numerous studies that attest to its effectiveness in the treatment of many musculoskeletal conditions, with particular emphasis on treatment of the spine,herniated-disc and Sciatalgia.

This technique involves the manipulation of joints and vertebrae misalignment, which are disturbing the joint biomechanics, thereby causing other injuries, such as nerve root compressions or global postural disorders that cause severe pain and / or chronic, poor posture, and even visceral disorders.

The relationship between the structure, particularly the spine and musculoskeletal system, highlighting the importance of the nervous system is the essence of chiropractic and its approach to the restoration and preservation of health.
