Welcome to my chiropractic practice :
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC ALL ABOUT ?
Chiropractic is based on what we call today the “neuro-science” which includes the anatomy, the physiology and the pathology of the nervous system and it emphasises a bio-mechanic approach to patient's complaints. Chiropractic is the ideal solution for relieving most pains and other symptoms caused by irritations of the nervous system.
THE CHIROPRACTOR’S EDUCATION
The chiropractic education consists of a five year full time university curriculum. The academic part is similar to the one taught in medicine (chemistry, anatomy, physiology, pathology etc …) but with a greater emphasis put on neurology and orthopedics.
The sixth year consists of a probationary period in the country where the candidate will practice. At the end of that year of assistantship, there is an examination in front of an international and multi-disciplinary jury.
The Chiropractor’s education is only possible in the United States, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, France, Spain, United Kingdom and Denmark.
On the global level, the quality of the chiropractic education is controlled by the CCEI (Council of Chiropractic Education International) which garanties the equivalence of the diplomas.
WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM CHIROPRACTIC ?
Sports Men & Women
Shocks and stresses to the body and to the spine lead to different degrees of dysfunctions.
The Chiropractor is educated to detect and to treat them.
Chiropractic adjustments are always gentle and painless.
IMPORTANCE OF NERVE CONNECTIONS
Connections are part of our nervous system which is made of :
I use my hands as much as possible, as they tell me more about your personal state of health. Whenever necessary or preferred, I will also use “activators” (with 1 or 2 heads) to assist in making chiropractic adjustments in order to correct subluxations. These two terms are specific to chiropractic.
The type of technique is always used to fit the Patient’s condition.
I have been trained in the following techniques and I provide them as part of my practice :
