A blend of traditional Chinese medicine and modern western methods
Traditional Chinese medicine, a science that is 5000 year old, has been transferred and developed throughout generations and defined by the World Health Organization in 1978 as a total set of knowledge and practices. Annotated or not, it is used in diagnosis, prevention and elimination of physical, mental and social imbalances.
This Organization has given a final definition to traditional Chinese medicine – chiropractics (which involves working with the hands) as a successful therapy for the treatment of spondylosis, discus hernia and sciatica, bone fractures, coxarthrosis as well as the first two stages of the treatment of osteoporosis.
For ailments such as coxarthrosis or discus hernia, modern western medicine does not have any solutions other than surgery. Chiropractics however has been treating these ailments successfully for the last fifteen years.
Doctors of western medicine usually focus on the part of the body that is ill and therefore ignore the whole state of the organism. Chinese medicine, as opposed to conventional, looks to find the cause, not just the consequences of the problem. Chiropractics is a combination of art, science and philosophy: Art – it involves a very precise work-technique with the hands. Science – because it is based on the expert knowledge of anatomy, physiology and neurology since it’s primarily concerned with the problems between the spine and nervous system. Philosophy – because it sees the organism as a whole, the patient as an individual and insists on introducing the patient to its own body.
Chiropractics naturally resolves the mechanical problems of the muscular and skeletal system, in that way it removes and eases the effects that may interfere with the functioning of the nervous system, which in turn leads to a better health and quality of life.
