About ihc-Women’s Chiropractic
Three Core Concepts at ihc-Women’s Chiropractic.
In Japan, chiropractic has not been recognized by government, even though we have been doing our best efforts. Therefore, chiropractic is not recognized as a medical profession, which is completely different from other developed countries. However, we believe that the quality of chiropractic service should be international standard because we would genuinely like to serve you a safe and effective treatment. For this reason, all our doctors have professional degree and/or license in Australia or The United States. In addition, we have three strong concepts in order to establish chiropractic profession for both of patients and doctors of chiropractic.
These three concepts are Education (Quality), Analysis (diagnosis), and Integration with conventional medicine. These are the principles of medicine and not special concepts from the view of primary care. However, we strongly believe that serving you health care service with the principles will lead to the proper acknowledgement of chiropractic profession in Japan, where we are not required for professional degree and/or license at all.
Our doctors of chiropractic completed more than 4200 hours professional program which is recognized by World health organization. We promise that we serve you high quality chiropractic health care. * In Japan, the number of Doctor of Chiropractic with professional degree and/or license is only about 680. (2009)
We have an emphasis on especially interview and examination in order to understand your condition properly. In addition, base on the result of the process, we explain our treatment plan as understandable as possible.
Integration with conventional medicine
In the case of we require you to be taken X-ray and/or your symptom is not suitable for chiropractic care, we refer you to a proper medical clinic. In addition, we cooperate each other in order to improve your condition in need.
What is Chiropractic?
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic is among the world's most highly trained and skilled specialists in manipulative therapy.
Chiropractic is a regulated profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biomechanical disorders of spinal joints and muscle which negatively affect nervous system.
Spinal dysfunction and misalignment can cause many pain syndromes and contribute to other health problems such as low back pain, numbness of hands and feet, headache and even sleepless. This is generally because of consequence of compression, inflammation and irritation to spinal joints, muscle and nerve.
These Spinal dysfunction and misalignment can be brought on by poor posture, trauma, emotional stress and chemical stress including the toxins we take into our body in the form of processed foods, alcohol, cigarettes and so on.
Chiropractic can help relieve pain, dysfunction and discomfort from the spine and many other parts of the body. Therefore, chiropractic can also be used as part of a health care program to maintain spine, muscle and nerve integrity, to promote optimum health and well-being.
