Chiropractic is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the spinal musculoskeletal system, such as back pain, scoliosis, muscular pain and other musculoskeletal complaints. It is often used as an adjunct to pharmacological treatment, as well as a prevention and rehabilitation method for injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Specialists use a variety of therapeutic techniques such as spinal manipulation, massage, exercise, manual therapy, acupuncture, relaxation techniques, as well as patient education on injury prevention and maintaining spinal health.

Chiropractic, also known as chiropractic, is a treatment used by chiropractors. It ranges from stretching and maintaining pressure to specific joint manipulations, which are usually performed manually and involve rapid and gentle pushing. The aim of the manipulations is to improve joint movement and function. Most often these methods are performed on the spine, but can also be applied to other parts of the body.

Manual therapy

Manual therapy, as part of manual medicine, is a therapeutic and diagnostic method dealing with dysfunctions of the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Although it is becoming increasingly common, it is still controversial. Meanwhile, the procedure, correctly and expertly performed, can not only relieve back, joint or root pain, but can even save you from surgery.

What are the most common indications for receiving chiropractic care?

Spinal chiropractic can help with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as a method of prevention and rehabilitation. Spinal chiropractic can help relieve spinal pain, both in the lower and upper back. A larger proportion of the population, regardless of age, struggles with lumbar spine pain problems. For some, this may be due to a prolapsed disc at L4-L5 level, which sometimes causes pressure on the sciatic nerve. This manifests as pain pulling all the way to the foot.

The therapy is also used in cases of discopathy, i.e. disc disorders, and helps to correct curvatures of the spine, so-called scoliosis. Depending on the condition, the therapist manipulates the vertebrae in the cervical, thoracic and also lumbar spine area, and performs mobilisation on the pelvic bones, legs or arms. In addition to this, it can alleviate muscle and joint pain, especially for neck, shoulder, hip, knee and foot pain. If you struggle with migraines and headaches, chiropractic may be right for you. It relieves migraines and headaches associated with muscle tension. Chiropractic has also found applications in rehabilitation. Whether after sports injuries, such as joint sprains or muscle injuries, or post-surgical rehabilitation, it helps to restore full body function.

What is FDM therapy?

FDM - Fascial Distortion Model therapy is a therapeutic technique that uses soft tissue manipulation. It aims to reduce pain and restore normal body function. FDM focuses on working with fascia, the membrane that surrounds and connects different parts of the body, including muscles, bones and organs.

During FDM therapy, the therapist performs special fascial manipulation techniques to relieve tension and pain in the fascia and to restore proper soft tissue alignment. The therapist uses special palpation techniques to locate points of tension and pain in the fascia, and then applies manipulative techniques to relax the tight tissue.
It can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions such as pain in the spine, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and other areas of the body. It is a therapeutic technique that can be used both on its own and in combination with other forms of physical therapy, such as rehabilitation exercises, manual therapy or massage.
