What is Chiropractic?

The art of Chiropractic is a branch of healing, which focuses on human health and processes of disease. That being said, Doctors of Chiropractic regard people as integrated beings and so in their practice, they pay particular mind to physiological and biochemical aspects of this being, including structural, spinal, musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular, nutritional, emotional and environmental. With careful analysis of the combination of all of those aspects, Chiropractors can help individuals manage their pain and in turn, have a greater positive effect on their overall health.

What does treatment involve?

Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm. The actual physical execution of Chiropractic treatment involves adjustment and manipulation of the body's joints and soft tissues by hand. The word Chiropractic comes from the Greek words "praxis" meaning "to use" and "chiro" meaning "hand". While Chiropractic manipulation is generally thought of as treatment directed to the spinal column, Dr. Tetuán is also trained to apply specialized myofascial therapies to the muscles and soft tissues, rehabilitation and manipulation all over the body.
