What is Chiropractic?

Developed in the United States of America (USA) more than a century ago, Chiropractic is the branch of health science concerned with problems of the spine and how these affect general health.

Chiropractors look after the spine and joints in the same way that dentists take care of the teeth.

Chiropractic is now the third most important and popular health profession worldwide regulated, reconized and well integrated.

Chiropractic education requires a university degree of 5 to 7 years depending on where you study. A doctor of Chiropractic has scientific knowledge comparable to those of traditional medicine.

Chiropractic should not be confused with massage, quiromassage nor quiropraxie, which does not require advanced degree-level training. In Spain, the title "Quiropráxia" or "Quiroprático" is very often used by massage therapists who have just completed weekend workshops as training.

When should a Chiropractor be consulted?

The earlier the better, so that he/she can detect any subluxations as soon as possible. Timely detection allows your chiropractor to get to the root of the problem quickly. It will save you unnecessary pain in the long term and ensure faster treatment.
