Dr. Jean-Jacques Lob, chiropractor

A totally different world where our concern is health-promotion,
rather than disease-treatment...

The practice of chiropractic is aimed at analysing the spine and then neutralising the Spinal Dysfunction, a.k.a.Vertebral Subluxation, a major interference to the normal control of the body functions... The reason for that is simple: the living body is a self regulating system, what is known as homeostasis, the balance is maintained and health is expressed until something interfere with the proper controls: the end result is that any symptom or disease may show up. Once the Vertebral Subluxation gets corrected, your body's ability to return to, and maintain health, is enhanced.
Therefore correcting vertebral subluxations, a major blockage to healing, is a priority whether symptoms are present or not, as yet!

The following is an official statement of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia:
"Chiropractic is based on the teachings of Galen and Hippocrates and the premise that the body can respond appropriately to its environment provided that the nervous system is free of interference. This was further developed by Palmer which lead to a focus on the spinal column and it's functioning. In summary, chiropractors focus on the detection and correction of aberrant spinal function and its subsequent effect on how the nervous system controls and coordinates the body in response to its environment. »
Important warning: The "treatment" does not consist in a therapy of a disease or symptom, be it psoriasis, lumbago or asthma for instance, but rather «the detection and correction of aberrant spinal function » a.k.a. vertebral subluxation or spinal dysfunction. Even though conditions are cited in this website, absolutely no claim of therapeutic success is being made. Everyone reacts indiviidually and the outcome may vary from poor to excellent. An opportunity to function better through chiropractic care gives the body a better chance to heal; the chiropractor works on the interference so that the body may heal through its inherent recuperative power. In other words, all the credit for the eventual healing process goes to the living body which responded positively.


I like this saying from chiropractor Kristian Baekkel and I wish all chiropractors would explain to their practice members that chiropractic is not an alternative to pain killers of any kind whether chemical, physical or psychological. Surely many times the person feels relieved, lighter after the first adjustments and often express it by saying « I feel I could fly » as if a tremendous weight had been melted down, but in some chronic cases it does not feel different right after the adjustment and the following day or night there can be an aggravation of the symptoms… Does it mean than in the first case the chiropractor was a champ and in the second case a poor adjustor? Providing the chiropractor practice objectively, that is: he analyses and specifically adjusts vertebral subluxation according to a strict chiropractic protocol of pre and post controls, whatever the short term outcome pleasant or disagreeable, from the split second of the chiropractic adjustment the body instantly boost the healing process. In the first case the person is elated and will speak highly of the chiropractor, in the other a strong faith in the healing possibility of their body is required to go through this fastidious time; some people quit care then and return to pain killers while those who persist give themselves the time the body needs to heal from within.
A chiropractic adjustment provokes instant better functional control and given time, feeling better usually follows. However, the chiropractor’s focus is solely on the adjustment of the vertebral subluxation so that the organism is given a better chance. The results are oftentimes spectacular!
