What is chiropractic?

Did you know?

More than ever, Quebecers are looking for natural, effective and quality care options amid a wide range of so-called healthy solutions.

According to a recent report, nearly 70% of Quebec adults will turn to alternative or non-traditional forms of medicine at least once in their lives. In light of this, chiropractic represents a solution of choice for Quebecers.

Chiropractic is a natural approach that aligns perfectly with the healthcare and quality of life solutions that are a growing concern among Quebecers.

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) disorders, and the effects that these disorders have on a person’s overall health.

The focus is on manual treatment, including spinal and joint manipulations, and soft-tissue techniques.

The approach used in chiropractic care is both preventive and curative. The aim is not only to relieve pain, but also to prevent symptoms and pain from occurring as a result of the poor functioning of the spine or other joints, muscles, and nerves.

Chiropractic care can be adapted to all types of clientele, from newborns to seniors. Chiropractors help people enjoy life to its fullest by treating conditions and optimizing the functioning of the neuromusculoskeletal system.
