Your chiropractor answers your questions

Is it relevant to seek consultation even if I don't experience pain?

A preventive evaluation of postural, neurological, and vertebral health can bring significant benefits. Our bodies undergo daily stressors, and in response, they naturally seek to protect and compensate as much as possible. Consequently, dysfunctions in the nervous system and spine can gradually develop as a result of these compensations. Therefore, preventive chiropractic care plays an essential role in maintaining your bodily health.

From what age can a child receive chiropractic care?

There is no minimum age for consulting a chiropractor. Throughout their growth, it may be relevant for your child to benefit from chiropractic care to assess their muscular, skeletal, and nervous development.

Are chiropractic treatments adaptable for pregnant women?

How does shockwave therapy work?
