Health maintenance and prevention

Chiropractic is an independent discipline. It specialises in the diagnosis, correction and prevention of dysfunctions of the nervous system that can affect the entire musculoskeletal system and the organs. Functional disorders (so-called subluxations) can manifest themselves as local and/or radiating pain, dysfunctions, pain or movement restrictions.

Chiropractic is about freeing the nervous system from disturbances. These nerve disorders, also known as subluxation, are effectively and safely corrected using various techniques. The aim is not to work symptom-related, but to eliminate the cause that can be found in the spine.

Chiropractic brings subluxations back into balance through targeted adjustment and thus provides a clear alleviation of discomfort and/or pain.

Short Story - Study of Chiropractic

Hippocrates already knew the principles of chiropractic, but only the Canadian D.D. Palmer combined chiropractic into a scientific system in 1895. He developed a course of study which has been continuously further developed ever since.

The first references to chiropractors in Germany can be found in the year 1924. The attempt to introduce a degree program in chiropractic in Germany failed (early 50s), as well as the attempt to inspire young people to study in America, being the reason for Werner Peper to cooperate with the medical profession to teach chiropractic to ordinary people. From this grouping arose the "German Society for Manual Medicine". In 1978, the German Chiropractors Society was initiated as a counter movement in Hamburg, which allows only graduated chiropractors as their members.

Today, chiropractic is the third largest health profession in the world after general and dental medicine. It has been known as a gentle method since 1895 and is aimed at people of all ages: babies, toddlers, teenagers, adults, seniors, athletes. The study of chiropractic takes - depending on the country of study - 4 to 6 years today. It is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and concludes with an internship at a university clinic and the Master of Chiropractic (MChiro, MscChiro) or Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.).

The 12 Principles of Chiropractic

Our body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. The nervous system is the main control organ of our self-healing, self-regulating body. When the nervous system is disturbed in its function, the body is no longer able to heal itself properly or to regulate itself.
The nervous system is disturbed in its function by physical, toxic and mental/emotional stressors. If these stressors manifest themselves in a displaced vertebra and the vertebra presses either on the spinal cord or the nerve root, we call this Subluxation. The consequence of a subluxated spine is a body that does not function optimally and thus becomes weak, vulnerable and susceptible to disease.
Because the nervous system controls everything in our body, subluxations can cause problems not only in the spine, but also in the periphery and organs. The main goal of chiropractic is to detect and specifically correct subluxations. The chiropractic treatment is called "Justierung" ("to adjust").
The adjustment enables the body to heal and regulate itself properly. The body itself knows how and whether it has to react to the corrective impulse of the adjustment. Healing is a process that depends on many factors, most of which are beyond the control of a chiropractor.
