Is Chiropractic

for me?

Our central approach to treatment is the relationship between the human structure (neuro-musculoskeletal system) and its optimum function.

Research demonstrates that the primary reasons patients consult chiropractors are back pain (approximately 60 %), other musculoskeletal pain such as pain in the neck, shoulder, extremities and arthritic pain (20 %) and headaches including migraine (10 %). About 1 in 10 (10 %) chiropractic patients present with a wide variety of conditions caused by, aggravated by, or which mimic neuro-musculoskeletal disorders (e.g. pseudo angina, dysmennorhea, respiratory and digestive dysfunctions).

Management includes manual techniques, particularly joint adjustment/manipulation, rehabilitation exercises, patient education and lifestyle modification, as well as the use of physical therapy modalities and orthotic supports. The profession makes no use of prescription drugs or surgery. Patients requiring these interventions are referred for medical care.

Interdisciplinary practice is now common with chiropractic doctors, medical doctors, physical therapists and others working together as partners in private practices, occupational health, automobile accident and other rehabilitation centers and national sports medicine teams. While most chiropractic services are community based in private offices, hospital based services are now available in many countries.

Chiropractic care - Is it suitable for me?

The scope of chiropractic practice is very diverse. Chiropractors have the appropriate education and training which allows them to safely and effectively treat people of all age groups, from children to the elderly. The majority of patients seek chiropractic care for local functional impairments or for pain in the musculoskeletal system. Although the pain may be localized to one site, chiropractic approach is holistic, as functional impairments may affect the whole body.

The most commonly encountered functional impairments treated in a chriopractic practice are:

  • radiating pain into arms or legs
  • pelvic torsion
  • joint restrictions (vertebral joints, ribs, extremities)
  • disc prolapses

  • hip pain
  • hand and wrist pain

  • tennis and golfer´s elbow
  • tinnitus (certain types)
  • tight muscles
  • torticollis
  • scoliosis related discomfort

In addition, chiropractors may also provide

  • postural and gait analysis
  • performance enhancement by restoring optimal biomechanical function
  • functional analysis for school, work and sports
