The word CHIROPRACTIC comes from the Greek: kheir meaning hands and praktikos , meaning to do or to practice.
Chiropractic is a health discipline that focuses on the inherent ability of the human body to maintain health and heal without drugs or surgery (homeostasis). It emphasizes the relationship between the structure (mainly the spine) and the function as coordinated by the nervous system.
The chiropractic approach is both preventive and curative . Its purpose is not only to bring you reliefbut also to prevent you from developing symptoms or pain related to a malfunction of your spine or other joints. To achieve this, the chiropractor will mainly use chiropractic adjustments, a specialized form of joint manipulation.
The chiropractor is a partner in the recovery and maintenance of your health. He is trained to give you the best advice to optimize your health and prevent the emergence of health problems.
The profession of chiropractor is recognized by the Office des professions du QuébecThis is why it is part of a professional order whose main mission is to ensure the protection of the public. To do this, the Ordre des chiropraticiens du Québec sets standards of practice that all chiropractors must respect.
