FOR WHO ?
Chiropractic is indicated for all, without distinction of age. However, certain periods of the life, some jobs
or some sports are more convenient to a "overuse" of the joints, the muscles or the tendons as in the adoption of unsuitable gesturesand postures.
Adult : Chiropractic helps find the balance the body needs to adapt itself better to the stressful situations of every day.
Athlete : The repetition of technical movements during the trainings or the competitions can bring the body until its physical and mechanical limits
Kid : The child learns to hold the head, to sit down, to crawl then to walk(work), to carry(wear) a heavy school bag, to go in for sport . All these learningscome along with falls and / or micro-traumas. The follow-up chiropractic during the growth of the child is thus particularly recommended.
Teenager : Chiropractic will help the teenager not to be submerge by a physical and emotional fatigue influencing its concentration, its intellectual activity and thus its success at school.
Senior : With the age, bones weaken, the joints lose of their flexibility, muscles melt down. Nowadays, we live more and more older; it is thus essential to preserve a good health.
Pregnancy : The treatment chiropractic acts on the alignment of the pond and on the articular mobility, so favoring the well-being of the pregnant woman and the better one position of the foetus in the womb.
Newborn : During the delivery, the moves exercised on the infant can cause articular hurts.
Chiropractic (greek: done by hand).
A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation, with a particular focus on joint subluxation and restoring function. The relationship between structure, especially of the spine and musculoskeletal system and function, especially as coordinated by the nervous system, is central to the profession’s approach to treatment, health and well being.
Management includes manual techniques with particular competency in joint adjustment/manipulation, and rehabilitation exercises, patient education and lifestyle modification, and the use of physical therapy modalities and orthotics and other supports. The profession makes no use of prescription drugs or surgery, and patients requiring these interventions are referred for medical care.
Research demonstrates that the primary reasons patients consult chiropractors are back pain (approximately 60%), other musculoskeletal pain such as pain in the neck, shoulder, extremities and arthritic pain (20%) and headaches including migraine (10%.
Chiropractic is taught and practised throughout the world and the profession has earned broad acceptance from the public and in national health care systems for its services. It is widely regarded as the leading example of a complementary health care discipline reaching maturity and mainstream acceptance, and WHO has now published guidelines recommending minimal educational standards for the regulation of chiropractic services within national health care systems
