Why do you call yourself a chiropractor not a "chirotherapist"?

The title of chiropractor is not legally protected in Germany. Thus every alternative practitioner or doctor can give himself this title, even if no extensive training has been completed. We chiropractors (Doctor of Chiropractic) have a full-time medical degree of four to six years  and have extensive specialist knowledge, which is essential for a clear and reliable diagnosis. In addition, the practical skills (especially the chiropractic adjustment) have been practiced and refined for years.  

We would be happy to answer the question of how chiropractic differs from manual therapy or osteopathy. Please ask your chiropractor personally about this.

What are the goals of chiropractic care?

The most important control device for our body functions is the nervous system. The nerve roots arising from the spinal cord form nerves that run relatively unprotected throughout the body. Mechanically caused functional disorders usually arise in structures that are in anatomical proximity to the exit points of nerve roots or in the vicinity of peripheral nerves and thus can impair their physiologically correct function. The aim of chiropractic treatment is to find and remedy this malfunction so that the nervous system can work again unaffected by mechanical imbalances and support the body's self-healing powers.

Who can be seen?

Individually adapted techniques enable the targeted chiropractic care of people of all ages, sizes and conditions. Infants and toddlers or the elderly can also take advantage of chiropractic care.

What actually happens in my body when it cracks?

There is fluid (synovial fluid) that surrounds your joints and when the joint is subject to an adjustment, small pockets of air or bubbles form in the fluid that surrounds your joints. When joint tissues are stretched, the pockets of air 'pop' or 'crack' which creates that unique sound you hear

How many adjustments do I need?

This is as different as the biomechanical as well as neurological problems we deal with in our practice. Usually the first improvements appear relatively quickly after the first few adjustments. It is however our goal to not only relief the symptoms but to correct the cause of the problem. Therefore, we create an individual plan to guide you on the path of optimal health and well-being. 

Is chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic care is extremely safe for people of all ages - from infants to 100 year olds. It is not known that there is a significant risk or complications from adjusting using the Gonstead method. Our care is safe as we only use natural and non-invasive treatment methods. Research has shown that adjustments  by chiropractors  is one of the safest healing methods in the world. The treatments themselves are usually not painful. In fact, most patients look forward to their treatments. Those in moderate to severe pain may experience mild discomfort, but the adjustments are always gentle, safe, and effective.

Can I have chiropractic care after back surgery?

Of course. Rest assured that we are not treating the surgically altered areas of your spine in the scenario of a spinal fusion or similar procedures. Surgery often leads to instability and degenerative joint disease above or below the affected level. This will be the focus of your chiropractic care.

Can patients with osteoporosis be seen?

Yes. Your chiropractor  takes into account the particular circumstances of each patient. There are many ways to adjust the spine. The method we choose is best for your age, size, and condition.

Cost for chiropractic care?

You do not need a referral  to come to our practice.

Our fee for the initial consultation and your first adjustment is 100Euro. 

Follow-up visits are 65Euro. 

We do work with insurances such as FSBP and BC/BS for our American patients.

If you have any questions, please call our office.

No. A dislocated joint in the area of the spine is a neurosurgical emergency that often results in the most severe symptoms of paralysis.

Chiropractors use their hands to release misalignments in the spine, pelvis and extremities through gentle impulses in order to ensure correct biomechanical function. The technical term used for this is “adjustment”. Performed by a qualified hand, this is an almost painless, extremely low-risk and very effective treatment method.
