Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to healing. Your chiropractor's goal is to correct misalignments and blockages in your spine to optimize the function of your nervous system and thereby stimulate your body's self-healing abilities.

Misalignments and blockages in your spine disrupt communication between your central nervous system and the rest of your body. Your nervous system is responsible for perceiving and controlling all processes in your body, thus having a significant impact on all aspects of your health and well-being. Science is increasingly understanding the relationships between the nervous system, the spine, and all bodily functions.

Everyone is eligible for treatment by a chiropractor, from infants to the elderly, because every living person benefits from remaining as mobile as possible and optimizing self-regeneration.

Your chiropractor treats your spine mainly through manual adjustments. He conducts various clinical examinations to determine the cause of your pain/symptoms/complaints. Then, he aims at restoring  the mobility of your musculoskeletal system. When your spine becomes more mobile and balanced, symptoms usually disappear quickly, and you generally function better. Chiropractic adjustment optimizes the body's ability to regenerate, adapt, heal, and ultimately evolve.

Chiropractic is also an art. Your chiropractor has numerous techniques and protocols that he has perfected and refined over the years. Most chiropractors also use therapeutic mechanical aids that enhance the effectiveness of their treatment. You will be helped with the techniques that produce the best results for you.

Moreover, chiropractic treatment is very safe. Your chiropractor first extensively reviews your medical history and personal situation. He adapts his/her techniques based on age and medical condition.

Your lifestyle, habits, thought patterns, and other external factors can become ingrained in your structure and thus influence the quality of your bodily functions. Your chiropractor will discuss this with you and make appropriate suggestions to enhance your quality of life.

In Belgium, the average reimbursement through “mutualities” (health insurance) for a treatment is 5 to 6 times €10/€12 per year per family member. Check with your own mutual insurance company how many treatments per year and how much you get reimbursed. Additionally, only DKV offers high reimbursement of chiropractic treatments under certain conditions.
