Chiropractic is a health profession that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of spinal disorders. This manual therapy focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine), function (coordinated by the nervous system), and how this balance influences the recovery and maintenance of health.

The doctor of chiropractic identifies the factors causing the disorder and eliminates the functional neurological interference (subluxation) optimizing the integrity of the spine and optimizing the functioning of the central and peripheral nervous system.

The term subluxation refers to a joint problem and, specifically, to a functional and/or structural alteration of the joint. In other words, one of the joint heads protrudes or dislocates from its natural location.

A biomechanical defect of the vertebral complex can compromise the neurophysiological balance of the organism and, therefore, can be the cause of countless problems, among them:

Backache, headache.

Discopathies, protrusions, herniated discs.

Torticollis, cervicalgia, dorsalgia, lumbalgia.

Scoliosis, kyphosis, sciatica, cervicobrachialgia.

Hip pain, tendonitis, epitrocleitis, shoulder or neck pain.

• Intercostal neuralgia, impingement, cruralgia, etc.

Through spinal manipulation (the so-called “spinal adjustments”), the main tool of the Doctor of Chiropractic, it is possible to treat all the ailments mentioned above, among others.

Chiropractic treatment consists of the application of forces with precise directions, amplitudes, and speeds on specific joints and adjacent tissues, to restore the motor and neurophysiological functionality of the joint, either in the spine or in the extremities.

Chiropractic contributes to maintaining a good state of health in general:

  1. Enhances immune system function
  2. Reduces inflammation
  3. Eliminates head, shoulder, arm, neck, and back pains
  4. Delays cervical, osteoporosis and osteoarthritis wear and tear
  5. Lowers blood pressure
  6. Reduces stress
  7. Improves balance and flexibility
  8. Prepares you for pregnancy and relieves infant or child colic

The key concept of Chiropractic is to restore the function of your nervous system so it can do what it was created to do: keep your body active and healthy.

Chiropractic is above all prevention, because if you keep your nervous system working and without interference, many health problems that hinders us in our daily lives, no longer becomes a problem!

Babies, children, pregnant women, adolescents, adults, the elderly and athletes can be treated with chiropractic.

Put a solution to your ailments and recover your well-being.
