Chiropractic

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health profession which believes human health can be achieved through the body’s potential to heal itself, without recourse to medication or surgery. Chiropractic is a regulated and recognized profession by the laws of all Canadian provinces and Amercian states. It belongs to a professional corporation whose primary mission is to protect the public. Its benefits are greatly recognized by practitioners of other health sectors.

The aim of chiropractic is the recovery and maintenance of human health, with particular attention given to the vertebral column, as well as every articulation of the body (elbows, shoulders, knees, etc.). It focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal system disorders.

The chiropractor, in his treatment, uses various techniques such as chiropractic adjustment, commonly known as “spinal manipulation”, as well as muscular therapies.
