Chiro hand ; praxis action

A reference for back pain

Chiropractic is a first contact manual therapy that includes detection, treatment, and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal conditions regarding spine and extremities.

It is a holistic approach focused on the nervous system while taking into account the natural recovery of the human body.

In several situations chiropratic treatment can be an alternative to painkillers and surgery, and also complement them.

Chiropractic is recognized by the Public Health Code in France. The use of the title of chiropractor is reserved for professionals with a degree approved by the Ministry of Health.

Who is concerned ?

Everyone, regardless of age

In sports, in our daily activities, and during work, exposed to heavy loads, repetitive movements, or prolonged postures;

During pregnancy and during the child's growth spurt hormonal changes result in loosening of tissues;

For elderly people who tend to have a sedentary lifestyle;

In all these cases our body has to adapt to daily stress and might have difficulties to cope with it. As a result it develops a perturbed function with symptoms like pain, lack of mobility, numbness etc.

Whether to facilitate tissue repair or release chronic pain, to optimize everyday life of elderly or increase performance of athletes: chiropractic offers a variety of approaches and individual treatment plans for everyone.
