CHIROPRACTIC & OSTEOPATHY (ACKERMANN COLLEGE)
Chiropractic is a non-medical therapeutic treatment, which deals mainly with spinal disorders and the whole musculoskeletal system, as well as their consequences on the body through the nervous system.
Manual therapeutic practices have taken place from ancient times (Hippocrates, Asclepius) until now that Chiropractic has received broad acceptance, being a top choice worldwide for musculoskeletal problems.
The Chiropractic method approaches holistically each special case and after examining the potential cause of the various symptoms, finds the right solution.
Chiropractic manipulations (adjustments) are performed on the spine, decompressing and releasing the spinal nerves which cause inflammations and pain in our body.
In addition, other decompression manipulations take place on the rest of the worn joints of the body.
During those manipulations some ‘crack’ sounds may be heard, however they are rather relieving.
As a result, the body is released from muscle pain and has achieved an unhindered neural, hematic and lymphatic flow. Moreover, the function of the body’s systems is generally improved.
urthermore, the structural balance of the spine is restored and the self-healing mechanisms of the body are activated. Thus, we can have wellness and good function until old age.
Chiropractic treatment contributes to preventing future dysfunctions (preventive-conservative treatment). What is more, it can be combined with conventional medicine as a complementary therapy.
Each special case is holistically approached, as there are a number of factors that are being assessed, always considering important to search for the causes that affect a person’s health.
After taking into account the assessment and the patient’s history, the appropriate treatment plan is decided, as well as the number of necessary sessions.
Likewise, the Chiropractic method of the Swedish college Ackermann (Stockholm), assesses various factors and proceeds to implementing personalized interventions. For decades now, physiotherapists and medical practitioners have been trained in this method. It combines effectively techniques from Chiropractic and Osteopathy, creating a unique system of manipulations/adjustments, mainly to: confront and rehabilitate musculoskeletal dysfunctions, regain range of motion of the joints and also achieve total wellness and functionality of the body.
