One condition synonymous with suffering: fibromyalgia, a complex pathology that is characterized by permanent pain throughout the body, intense fatigue and micro-depression. It affects two to three million people and is still difficult to treat, especially because of the variety of its symptoms. If chiropractic does not cure fibromyalgia, it can be a real ally against this disease and relieve the pain it induces. Cervical manipulation thus significantly improves the quality of life of patients. In the case of chiropractic decompression you can get all supports.
The pains can sometimes hold surprises, as evidenced by the so-called referred pains, that is to say, which are felt far from the home. Acute or chronic, they are paradoxically often painless and can be highlighted during a chiropractic session. Patients sometimes come to consult for a given problem, but other pains of which the latter were not aware are sometimes identified by the practitioner.
The referred pains are actually nerve pains. By applying light pressure to those around the spine, the chiropractor allows the nerve impulses to recover their capacity potential. By focusing on the lower back, we can act on intestinal pain. Some patients therefore use chiropractic for pain that a priori has nothing to do with the back or joints, namely menstrual, inguinal pain, pain related to constipation, prostate problems or tension headaches, migraines and tinnitus.
But to avoid suffering, nothing like anticipation: consulting a chiropractor as a preventive measure can detect and correct imbalances before the pain sets in. The chiropractic approach is quite simple: reduce nerve interference that hinders your ability to heal. It is a scientific fact, the nervous system controls every cell, every organ, every system in your body and it is protected by your spine. Since healing is governed by your nervous system, it is therefore our focus.
Computer-assisted chiropractic is effective in treating:
- Headaches, migraines
- Neck pain, stiff necks
- Pain in the shoulders or between the shoulder blades
- Back pain
- Numbness of the limbs (arms, legs)
- Osteoarthritis and pain in the joints
- Pain due to pregnancy
- Tendinitis, bursitis, capsulitis, epicondylitis
The chiropractor is a partner in recovering and maintaining your health. He is trained to give you the best health advice. Chiropractic has been governed by the Office des professions since 1973. Chiropractors practicing must, therefore, hold a doctoral degree in chiropractic, pass the Canadian theoretical and practical professional exams and be a member of the Order of Chiropractors of Quebec.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is an art, a science and a philosophy and it was born in 1895 in the United States thanks to a so-called DD Palmer. Chiropractic stems from the following scientific and fundamental basis: All the functions of your body are controlled and coordinated by your nervous system. It is made up of the brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves. The brain is protected by the skull, while the spinal cord is protected by the spine with its 24 mobile vertebrae. The brain functions like a computer and controls all parts of the body. But to get to the organs, it must pass freely from head to toe. There should be no interference. However, if a vertebra is misaligned or does not move well, the electric current will be affected. This is called a vertebral subluxation. The role of your chiropractor is to remove interference from your nervous system through vertebral adjustments so that your body can heal itself.
