Chiropractic Evening Event
One hour spent for more health
Every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from 7pm - 8pm we invite you -free of charge- to an informative chiropractic evening in our practice rooms.
What belongs to a healthy style of living?
Is it possible, to live healthy in these days?
Why does the nervous system play such an important role in our health?
Where does Chiropractic come into play?
In a small circle of people we would like to make aware of the facts that take influence in our health in negative as well as positive ways. Kindly make a reservation in advance for the chiropractic evening as seats are limited.
We are looking forward to your visit!

At Leb Chiropractic we try to keep the costs as low as possible, which is why you have to pay directly after the appointments to save costs by not engaging external clearing houses.
We are a private practice and bill on the fee regulation for non-medical practitioners (Heilpraktiker Gebührenverordnung). If your German health insurance company reimburses non-medical practitioner benefits, you usually can reclaim your money. Often American health insurances include chiropractic care in their policies.
Risks and side effects
Sometimes the symptoms worsen for a short time or old complaints might reappear. This is not alarming , but part of the process. Most of these symptoms disappear within a few days.
In rare cases, the body reacts with nausea, diarrhea or fever; in even rarer cases you might feel sad, listless or aggressive. In these cases, the body "detoxifies" physically or emotionally, which can also be part of the healing process.
There are some reports that manipulation caused a stroke. In these reports, the level of education of the treating persons is hardly differentiated. Thus chiropractors, “Chiropraktiker”, “Chirotherapeuten” (this distinction is unknown in English and all are falsely referred to as "chiropractors"), orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists and "other therapists" (sometimes even martial artists) are lumped together. Pay attention to the names Edzard Ernst and Simon Singh. (1)
Overall, the risk of having a stroke is extremely small (2) and the chiropractic adjustments do not seem to exacerbate the problem (4).
Unfortunately, there are always those cases that show no risk factors and where the tests are unremarkable. These people have then pulled the hard line that the stroke will happen no matter what. Whether they consult a doctor or chiropractor (3).
This is why it is so important that your chiropractor has a sound education, which gives you a thorough initial consultation and an exam in depth.
There are cases in which the diseased area should not be treated under any circumstances (for example metastases in a vertebra, as there is a risk of fracturing), anyhow it might help you if the surrounding areas are corrected.
In each case, we decide individually what is possible and what is not. At Leb Chiropractic! your safety is our paramount aim.

(The name of the subjects may vary depending on the university.)
The World Health Organization WHO stipulates a minimum of 4200 hours. This number of hours is regularly exceeded at all accredited universities (e.g., Glamorgan 2008: 5360 hours).
Chiropraktiker are a kind of naturopaths who have attended chiropractic courses. Since there are no legal quality standards in Germany, the quality span can vary very much. The Paracelsus School only allocates 45 hours for chiropractic! (6) Paracelsus
Chirotherapeuten sind Ärzte, die eine Zusatzausbildung (320 Stunden) im Bereich Chiropraktik absolviert haben. Sie dürfen Chirotherapie oder Manuelle Therapie als Zusatz führen. (8) Da es in Deutschland noch kein Berufs-Gesetz für Chiropraktoren gibt, sind diese dazu verpflichtet, unter dem Heilpraktiker-Gesetz zu arbeiten, obwohl keine Regelungen über Ausbildungsvoraussetzungen, Dauer oder Inhalt der (Heilpraktiker-) Ausbildung im Bezug auf die später ausgeübte Technik existieren. Das Heilpraktiker-Gesetz definiert lediglich, dass, wer die Heilkunde ausüben will ohne als Arzt bestallt zu sein, einer Erlaubnis bedarf.
Im großen Groben und Ganzen kann man vielleicht sagen, dass die Osteopathie sich vornehmlich mit den inneren Organen befasst. Die Parietale Osteopathie befasst sich außerdem mit Störungen des Muskuloskelettal-Systems.
Die Chiropraktik befasst sich erst mit dem Nervensystem. Wenn die von den Nerven versorgten Strukturen (Muskeln, Gelenke und Organe) nicht reagieren, korrigieren Chiropraktoren auch Störungen in diesen.
As with chiropractic, osteopathy is not well regulated in Germany. Here, too, the differences in quality can be enormous. However, osteopathy with its own degree program in Germany and greater recognition is already a few steps further in the process of legal recognition.
We at Leb Chiropractic! do not see osteopaths as competitors; we are even collaborating with some local osteopaths.
We also do work closely with a Personal Trainer . He offers back training for our customers. If you wish, we will make arrangements in advance to achieve optimal results for you.
We would like to give you an understanding of how subluxations come, how you can recognize and avoid your personal triggers. The more you know, the more you can do for yourself and the less adjustments you will need.
I am so stressed that my body keeps subluxating. What can I do? In acute stress phases it makes sense to be treated more often until the stress is over. Chiropractic can help you to get through this phase as unscathed as possible.
In the case of persistent stress, the end of which is not foreseeable and which you cannot control, we work together with other professions that can help you to better deal with this stress. It is important to us to help you in the long term and not just to give you symptom treatment
It is useful for everyone to have a fully functioning nervous system.
If you are one of the few exceptions that cannot be adjusted (Link s.o When may not be adjusted?), we will refer you to the appropriate specialist.
