Maintaining an optimal condition In addition to being curative, chiropractic care helps to maintain optimal function of the musculoskeletal system. Just like your mobile phone, it is necessary that your body is analysed from time to time in order to facilitate system updates.
It is likely that you will not feel any pain, but your body may have already developed coping strategies and after some time discomfort or even pain may appear.
It is all the little imbalances of everyday life that can, over time, be a source of problems, such as missing a step, carrying loads always on the same side, immobility etc.
The chiropractor, performs a 'technical check-up' to identify and treat all these imbalances to ensure the overall functionality of your body.
Your body's ability to adapt to daily work and family stresses will be increased. This is achieved through regular adjustments (about 2 sessions per year) and advice on your posture and lifestyle.
The chiropractor first of all proceeds to a precise interrogation of the major symptom, his lifestyle, his family history, his pathology, real or felt, or his personal history.
He also studies complementary examinations (MRI, radiology, echo...).
The chiropractor then carries out a physical examination: nervous system, search for muscular tensions, postural analysis, orthopaedic examination.
With the help of all this information, the therapist defines his treatment plan and the number of consultations he considers necessary to improve the patient's condition.
The relief stage is aimed at getting the patient back into shape quickly. The goal of this chiropractic phase is to get your spine and nervous system functioning at its highest level of intensity.
The frequency of sessions is higher during this period, and is determined by the patient's symptoms. During this phase, consultations can be spaced at intervals of up to 3 days, and should be spaced as far apart as possible as the pain subsides.
During the stabilization time, the practitioner dedicates his method to stabilize the correction undertaken over the long term while improving the patient's condition.
This phase is necessary to maintain past progress. The frequency of your adjustments is reduced.
