The chiropractic

Your body unconsciously handles most of the stresses accumulated through our daily life. When it can no longer compensate, the imbalance is established and the surplus manifests itself in symptoms. Do not hesitate to contact a chiropractor if you have any questions.

The approach

Symptomatic treatment (well-defined pain) takes place in three stages:

  • Relief: recover the motor function as quickly as possible while limiting painkillers.
  • Stabilization: essential work after recovery so the symptoms do not return.
  • Prevention: asymptomatic treatment (compensation systems), working on the true cause of symptoms caused by stress accumulated during life, to optimize health and quality of life.

The first visit

It takes about 30 to 45 minutes. It includes a history and a comprehensive clinical examination to identify the nature of the problem. Additional examinations (MRI or X-ray) may be required prior to any initial treatment to confirm the diagnosis and/or eliminate any contraindications to chiropractic care.
Depending on the patient's diagnosis and/or objectives (acute pain, chronic pain, musculoskeletal disorders, increased sports performance, etc.), a treatment plan is defined and proposed by the practitioner.
This is an essential step in order to achieve the objectives set between the practitioner and the patient. This plan may be reassessed during follow-up.

Follow-up

It takes about 15 minutes with customized tactics. Nutrition counseling and specific exercises are often provided in order to optimize the evolution and reach the health objectives as quickly as possible.
