Step by step treatment

The mission of the doctor of chiropractic is to detect and correct cervical subluxations or the shoulder joint itself, as well as to treat the origin of the problem. By restoring the vertebrae to their natural position, interference on the shoulder muscle, capsule tissues and the entire joint are eliminated. Consequently, the nervous system regains its optimal control and proper functioning.

With a chiropractic treatment adapted to your own case, pain and disorders disappears, joint mobility recovers and health is restored. Unlike traditional medicine, chiropractic not only treats a symptom, such as pain. On the contrary, it locates and treats the origin and the cause of the problem in a natural way, realigns the entire spinal column to avoid future spinal problems, without resorting to medications or surgery and their side effects, releasing the nerve interferences, leaving the body in an optimal condition and state of control.

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.
