Chiropractic is recommended in the management and prevention of many functional or pathological disorders of the musculoskeletal system, known as musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). MSDs result in contractures, pain or limited mobility. 

The goal of chiropractic is not to substitute for medical treatment but to offer an alternative to surgery and medication, whenever the diagnosis makes this therapy possible. Chiropractic is also used, with proven and recognized effectiveness, in the prevention of certain pathologies such as back pain and osteoarthritis.

It is a manual medicine recognized by the Public Health Code which reserves the title of Chiropractor to professionals with a diploma approved by the Ministry of Health.


There is no short or part-time course, the chiropractor must validate a full time initial training of about 5000 hours of teaching, over 5 years (Master level).

Who is it for?


Certain periods of life, certain occupations or certain sports are more conducive to overuse of joints, muscles or tendons and to the adoption of inappropriate gestures and postures.

Chiropractic is therefore particularly recommended for newborns, children, pregnant women, athletes and seniors.

The adaptation of the techniques used to the age and physical condition of each patient allows access to chiropractic care for all: regardless of age. Chiropractic care is thus particularly recommended for newborns, children, pregnant women, athletes and seniors..

Chiropractic care is also very appropriate in the workplace to avoid absenteeism.


When to consult

The nervous system controls all the functions of our body. We understand that in order to be in good health, this central computer must work perfectly.
Spinal dysfunctions, bad posture, and the positions held can have repercussions on the overall functioning of your body and your vitality. 

Spinal pain - Back pain

  • Nervicalgia (torticollis, whiplash, whiplash, etc.)
  • Back pain (pain between the shoulder blades, "intercostal neuralgia" (without neurological symptoms), etc.).
  • Low back pain (lumbago, lumbar sprains, etc.)
  • Osteoarthritis, scoliosis, herniated discs (without neurological symptoms), sciatica (without neurological symptoms), "sciatica" (without neurological symptoms), "cruralgia" (without neurological symptoms), "cervico brachial neuralgia" (without neurological symptoms), etc.

Joint pain at the extremities

  • Shoulder: Shoulder tendinitis (supraspinatus, long biceps), frozen shoulder
  • Elbow: epicondylitis, epitrochleitis, loss of strength in the hands
  • Wrist: carpal tunnel syndrome, lunate dislocation.
  • Hip: gluteal tendonitis, hip arthrosis.
  • Knee: gonalgia, wiper syndrome, knee sprain, crow's foot tendonitis
  • Ankle: sprain, achilles tendonitis, lameness...

The body as a whole

Many patients report improvements in a number of symptoms for which they may not have been seen initially. 

  • Some stress-related pathologies: Anxiety, Sleep Disorder, Some forms of Migraines...
  • Fibromyalgia 
  • Premenstrual syndrome, painful menstrual syndrome.
  • Digestive disorders 
  • Infantile Colitis 


However, current scientific knowledge does not allow us to conclude that these effects are systematic.

Chiropractic treatment is never a substitute for medical treatment, but rather a complement to it in the interest of the patient.

In case of doubt, the chiropractor will not hesitate to refer to his doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chiropractic is not recognized in France? FALSE.

The profession of chiropractor has existed since the end of the 19th century.

1993: Chiropractic becomes part of the World Health Organization (WHO).

2002: Chiropractic is recognized by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health. 

The Kouchner Law of March 4, 2002, article 75, on the rights of patients and the quality of the health care system is the first step in the process of recognition of the use of the title of chiropractor.

2011: Publication on January 7, 2011 of Decree No. 2001-32

 This decree details the conditions of training and practice of the chiropractor in France.

2013: Chiropractors are registered with the Regional Health Agency of their place of practice.

All chiropractors who have met the training requirements and validated the 5 years of study, are assigned an Adeli-number by the ARS authorizing them to use the title of chiropractor.

This ensures users that their practitioner has received adequate training.

What's the crack?

The audible or 'crack', emitted during certain techniques used by chiropractors, is called 'cavitation'. During the manipulation, the ligaments surrounding the joint are stretched, allowing "air bubbles" to form in the joint. The noise can sometimes be surprising, especially in the cervical region (the ears being closer, the sound seems louder) and above all it does not cause pain. (it is the same principle in people who crack their fingers and/or cervical vertebrae on their own).

If you are not comfortable with this type of technique, tell your chiropractor, he will adapt to you.

Can everyone go to a chiropractor? Real

 As in all health care practices, there are contraindications to spinal manipulation. The chiropractor is also trained to detect these contraindications.

This is why during your consultation, it is important to inform your chiropractor of any health information, allowing him to adapt to your condition or decide not to adjust and refer you to your doctor.

Chiropractic only treats the back? WRONG.

The effects of chiropractic are scientifically validated for the major disorders of the spine and peripheral joints.
Many patients report an improvement in their visceral disorders thanks to chiropractic care (e.g. intestinal transit, infantile colic), as well as on dizziness, imbalances, accouphènes, etc. 

This information needs to be confirmed by studies.


Chiropractic and Osteopathy are the same? False

The chiropractor is authorized to treat pathological disorders such as conditions proven by medical imaging, such as sciatica or herniated discs, for example, as well as functional disorders (pain associated with the use of a joint). 

Chiropractic's broader field of competence is justified by the quality of scientific research in this field and a homogeneous quality of research-based training, which is close to that of medical students.

Note that the chiropractor is the only non-physician therapist authorized to perform spinal manipulations without prior medical authorization. The chiropractor is the only non-physician manual therapist to have his initial training, standardized worldwide.
