Patient information and history
First off, we’ll define if chiropractic can help you. When you consult for the first time, your chiropractor will take your information and start asking you questions to identify the problem.
Thermographic vertebral scanner:
Then your chiropractor can use a vertebral (thermographic) scanner to identify neurological interference in the back.
If necessary, your chiropractor will perform the appropriate neurological and orthopedic examinations. Your chiropractor will also check your range of movements to ensure that they are healthy.
Then, your chiropractor will palpate the back to examine the body’s health state, determine how the joints are and define the best possible treatment. If we think that chiropractic will be a good fit, we’ll then propose suitable treatment (one or more therapeutic solutions).
The care phase is generally quite fast: there are several chiropractic techniques. The most common is to perform mechanical adjustments. These are gentle, very fast, precise and painless movements which send information to the brain so that the body can correct itself during the following days. For those who are afraid of cracking sounds, there are other manual or instrumental techniques which don’t make noise. After choosing the most suitable techniques your chiropractor will adjust you.
The follow-up sessions:
During the following sessions, generally, only the palpation and adjustment steps are necessary. Of course, we follow up on the patient’s condition to guide and personalize the care. There are three treatment phases.
The initial phase (symptomatic phase):
The first is the initial phase where we treat the most urgent health issues. Your chiropractor will try to minimize the symptoms and get the body out of its defensive or ‘survival mode’ state.
Stabilization phase (health phase):
Then there is the stabilization phase. The objective then becomes to cure the underlying problem so that it does not come back. During this phase, we will also begin to create better health, strengthen the body.
Prevention and development phase (optimization and health maintenance):
The goal is to maintain good overall health and optimize the body by ensuring that it’s not only stable but also improving many functions such as proprioception (awareness of joints in space), the digestive system, etc. In everyday life, the body is subject to many stresses (physical, chemical, emotional). The prevention phase makes it possible to harmonize the body and the spirit by releasing the stresses of the body in order to fully take advantage of it.

What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a manual technique for correcting misalignments in your spine or other joints. Both painless and secure, it is performed by a chiropractor and helps optimize your mobility.
During the first session, we assess your current state of health and well-being, analyze your spine and nervous system and ask you about your personal goals.Then, we will outline a personalized follow-up plan based on these analyses.
We are committed to increasing our technical and theoretical knowledge by all possible means.
We place the quality of care above any other considerations.
We know that your time is valuable. That’s why we try to keep you here only as long as it takes to perform the adjustments.
Our care plans are structured in order to ensure maximal efficiency.
We believe that people who know their bodies are better able to take control of their health and lives. We take the time to answer your questions so that you can learn more, not only about the work we do here together, but also about your body: how it works, how to take care of it, etc. And we remain available for any specific requests.
