Chiropractic, much more than a cure for back pain

Chiropractic

The word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek kheir which means “hands” and praktikos which means “do”. The Chiropractic philosophy is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls every body’s cell, tissu, organ and system. Any disturbance in the nervous system will cause problems in the body’s health balance.
In chiropractic, we consider that our body has an innate intelligence that allows it to heal itself as long as there is no interference (subluxation) in his nervous system.

Subluxation

A subluxation is a mechanical and electrical dysfonction of the spine that affects the operation ot your nervous system. When there are interferences in your nervous system, you don’t have access to 100% of your health.

Causes of subluxations

What does a Chiropractor?

A chiropractor is trained in locating subluxations and correcting them with an adjustment. An adjustement is a high-speed manipulation with a low amplitude on a joint, which helps to return the normal flexibility and alignment of the spine, and so stimulate the nervous system.

What is the popping sound?

During many chiropractic adjustment, you may experience a popping noise. The goal of the manipulation is not to crack but to restore the joint mobility.

Some of our joints are joined by a joint capsule containing synovial liquid and gas bubbles. When chiropractors make an adjustment, it increases the range of movement of the joint, and reduce the pressure inside it. The gas rapidly expands in the liquid and that’s when the popping is heard.

There are also other techniques without any cracking just as effective. If you are worried about popping sound, please talk to us and we will find the technique that will be most appropriate for you.
