Philosophy and values of the chiropractic centre and its team
One of the most relevant factors is the philosophy of the centre and how they use it in their services and patient care. It is common to find different approaches to chiropractic care. One the one hand, there are chiropractic centres more focused on alleviating ailments, whereas other centres focus on spreading the preventive philosophy to optimise physical and emotional wellbeing in a holistic way.
Although each of the different chiropractic approaches is valid and it will always depend on which one best meets your needs, at Momentum Quiropràctic we believe it is important to integrate chiropractic adjustments as a regular and preventative care to fully enjoy all the benefits of chiropractic.
For example, at Momentum Quiropràctic, we empower the different patients with the ultimate goal that they are able to take control of their health, learn to manage their emotions and thus enjoy a life with less emotional (less stress, anxiety…) and physical (e.g. pain reduction, among) interferences.
Chiropractic team education
One of the most common doubts when discovering chiropractic is about the education of chiropractors. Chiropractic is a university degree of 5 to 7 years and the students who learn this profession obtain the Higher University Degree in Chiropractic. In addition, we are recognised as doctors of chiropractic by the European Chiropractors’ Union (ECU).
In Spain you can study and train in chiropractic at two universities: Barcelona College Of Chiropractic (next to Pompeu Fabra University) and Madrid College of Chiropractic (at Real Centro Universitario Escorial Maria Cristina, a centre attached to the Complutense University).
The Momentum Quiropràctic team, both Montse and Thomas, we have studied in the first promotion at the University of Barcelona. Throughout the chiropractic university studies, the medical basis of the human body is studied, as well as health specialties such as neurology, epidemiology, immunology or radiology.
It is very important that you check that the chiropractic centre you are considering is part of the Asociación Española de la Quiropráctica (AEQ), which regulates the profession in Spain. To do this, you can use their membership search engine and check if the chiropractic centre’s professional team is qualified.
For example, you can check that the Momentum Quiropràctic team is part of the AEQ by searching for Montserrat Vilahur Gies and Thomas Chiche. We recommend that you always make sure of the necessary qualification of the chiropractor to whom you will entrust your health! 😉
As an additional tip: make sure that the professional team is in constant learning by attending congresses, seminars to keep up to date with new scientific research.
