The chiropractic treatment focuses on the nervous system. Nature supplied us with a spine not only to protect the nervous system but also for mobility. The segments of the spine can lose their natural mobility due to different causes. These kinds of disturbances result in improper function and loss of the body´s resistance to injury and disease. Chiropractic specializes in the detection and elimination of these disturbances and their causes, allowing the body to reach its maximum health potential.
This is achieved by a gentle chiropractic adjustment involving mobilization of a joint in a specific direction by bringing the joint to tension and applying a small, gentle thrust.
Other therapeutic modalities used include muscle therapies, exercise programs, other supporting therapies (for example physical therapy, taping, and nutritional advice) and advice on posture and lifestyle modifications.
