Benefits of chiropractic

Chiropractic helps the nervous system function optimally. When the nervous system is functioning properly it helps to balance our health against diseases. Subluxations interfere in the communication of the nervous system and therefore often cause ailments and symptoms.

Chiropractic not only helps our body to recover faster and work better, but it also prevents future illness/dis-ease.

Some common problems that chiropractic can help are:

    Proven testimony: Chiropractic adjustments help to improve multiple sclerosis

    An article in the magazine Discovery Salud Nº202 of March 2017 shows the opinion of Jose Segurado, patient of Puravida who was diagnosed in 2014 an incurable qualified multiple sclerosis:
    “I have felt with her a before and a radical after”
    “The fact is that several roads led me to Kephra Froehlich… And the change was spectacular; in two months of adjustments – twice a week – my spine was corrected and I had the feeling that my body was really working correctly after a long time.”
    “I recommend it to everyone. It really is a pity that in Spain it is not ruled or part of the Social Security as it happens in other countries.”
