Chiropractic is a he alth discipline that stimulates the body's natural healing powers to facilitate healing without the use of drugs or surgery.
Chiropractic emphasizes the principle that the nervous system controls our entire body. The chiropractor identifies the cause of the pain or discomfort in order to treat the problem itself and not just to relieve the symptoms.

We also perform a palpation of your spine, muscles and any other joints that may be involved in your condition. This examination is exclusive to chiropractic diagnosis. If necessary, radiological examinations may be indicated. We will then be able to make an accurate diagnosis of your condition and develop a treatment plan that meets your needs.
Chiropractic treatments aim to relieve symptoms and correct musculoskeletal dysfunction. To achieve these goals, a number of treatments are required. The number of treatments needed is specific to each patient and varies according to several factors such as the nature and duration of the problem, previous episodes, the patient's physical condition and lifestyle.
During the initial phase of care, the important thing is:
