What is chiropractic?


What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic definition is an alternative medicine that is both preventive and curative. This approach is known for relieving and treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions, while ensuring a good working nervous system. In addition to helping relieve symptomatic conditions, chiropractic focuses on prevention to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Manual treatments on the spine, joints and soft tissues are performed to rebalance your neurological, muscular and skeletal system.


A short history of chiropractic

Historically, the word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words “kheir” (hand) and “praktikos” (do), thus meaning “to do with the hand.” The benefits of chiropractic treatments are therefore based on specific manual movements. The man behind this discipline is Daniel David, who was passionate about the human body and the need to find the cause of diseases. He believed there was a reason for each disease, and that addressing that problem directly would cure the disease. He was specifically referring to the spine. Indeed, he believed that a decrease of the nerve flow could cause the affected organs to become dysfunctional.


Who is chiropractic care for?

Chiropractic is a practice that adapts to your needs. This natural medicine makes it possible to offer to each individual effective care which does not require neither prescription nor surgical intervention. Only the expertise of a chiropractor is needed.

Chiropractic can help children, pregnant women, athletes and elderly, in each case, a personalized treatment.
