What is chiropractic?

According to the definition of la World Health Organization “Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy that focuses on providing the body with its maximum natural potential, allowing it to manifest greater performance”.


Chiropractic deals with the detection, correction and prevention of disorders of the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, especially misalignments of the spine that affect the functioning of the nervous system, the body and health in general.


Which is asubluxationspinal?


In simple terms, it can be a biomechanical problem with a neurological consequence. Similarly, it can be exactly the opposite, a neurological problem with a biomechanical consequence.

When the nervous system is not able to assimilate the stress of the environment, it compensates itself by creating vertebral subluxations.


The term subluxation is used by Doctors of Chiropractic to refer to what is commonly considered a compression of nerve tissue. It occurs when a vertebra loses its mobility or normal position and irritates or compresses the nerve that passes through it. This, as a consequence, brings symptoms similar to those seen in neurological deafferentation processes.  The discomfort produces a nervous interference in the transmission of nerve messages that go from the brain to the whole body.

In 90% of cases, subluxation does not cause physical pain since only 10% of the nerves are associated with pain fibers (nociceptive receptors). However, its damaging effect is immediate, weakening the body and its performance since the messages between the body and the brain are negatively affected. It can cause health challenges in the muscles and organs, and potentially serious disturbances in the normal functioning of the body, such as asthma, digestive or gynecological problems, nervousness, hypersensitivity to stress or depression, herniated discs, back pain, neck.


You can use the metaphor of a patio hose: Subluxation is like stepping on the hose obstructing the flow of water (nerve impulses). The result would be a patio   that dries up, gets sick and dies. Chiropractic "removes the foot from the hose" to restore the flow of information to the body, and it, functioning correctly, recovers and appears healthy and vital.

What are the causes of a subluxation?

In our day to day life we accumulate multiple stress factors that can cause vertebral subluxations. 










What is chiropractic adjustment?


The adjustmentchiropractor specificof doctors of chiropractic. It consists of a precise and controlled movement that the chiropractor performs with his hands on the subluxated vertebrae or the affected joints. 

Chiropractic adjustments allow to correct subluxations, rebalance the spine and restore communication in the nervous system to maximize human potential at all levels.


Chiropractors use a range of specific techniques depending on the person who receives it: children, the elderly, pregnant women, babies... Chiropractic adjustment is part of the lives of millions of people who have decided to take care of their health.


At VITALIS centers we use a set of techniques to free the nervous system at a physical, emotional and chemical level. We also use a state-of-the-art instrument called the Activator that in some cases replaces manual adjustment and specific chiropractic tables from the USA, specific for particular ailments.
