With more than 100,000 practitioners, chiropractic is a widely practiced international manual health profession.
Based on a comprehensive understanding of how the body works and the relationships between the spine, the nervous system and certain health disorders.
Chiropractic aims at the detection, treatment and prevention of dysfunctions of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, in particular of the spinal column, and the resulting disorders.
Chiropractic remains little known in France (often confused with osteopathy and physiotherapy) due to the small number of practitioners.
Chiropractic is the profession that publishes the most articles in basic research on the validity and therapeutic effects of neuro-articular corrections.
Chiropractic treatment is mainly based on the acts of spinal manipulation known as chiropractic adjustments and mobilization of the body's joints.
Chiropractic treatment is non-drug and non-invasive.
Chiropractic adjustment is a precise and painless gesture that requires a specific touch and extraordinary dexterity.
Its purpose is to:
► restore the circulation of nerve impulses by eliminating interference created by vertebral subluxations
► restore optimal joint mobility
It is a lack of alignment or mobility between 2 vertebrae of the spine.
It interferes with the flow of nerve impulses and may, among other things, cause muscle contractures, pain, inflammation, osteoarthritis and disturbances in the functioning of various organs and systems of the body.
