Step by step treatment

If there is Kyphosis or kyphoscoliosis, your doctor of Chiropractic will look for the origin of this pathology. If it is of biomechanical origin, he will treat it and avoid habitual relapses in your daily life. When acquiring bad postures, for instance, sitting next to the computer or when using your mobile phone, your chiropractor will detect and correct any dysfunction, delaying the aging of the spine, which will be faster in the presence of kyphoscoliosis. In the event that the problem is not of mechanical origin, he will direct you to the specialist that is the most pertinent for your specific case.


In the first 10 to 15 minutes after your visit it is contraindicated to sit down.

During this period of time it is necessary to walk to mobilize the joints that we just release and walking also facilitate better joint lubrication and nutrition of the intervertebral discs.


During the next 24 hours following the first sessions avoid any excessive effort.

Otherwise, the effectiveness of the adjustment received will decrease.


Before and after every visit, avoid all kinds of tension.

Both physical and mental. The more relaxed you are the more benefit you will get from your treatment.


The set appointments must be respected.

They have been established to obtain the best results.


The sensations that each person may experience after an adjustment may vary without affecting the result and benefit of the treatment in the medium and long term.

After an adjustment, you may experience a feeling of relaxation, having a lot of energy, general well-being, disappearance or relief of symptoms, soreness or pain.

You may sometimes even experience discomfort since the body has to adapt to the new posture and position.
