A scientifically based method of treatment, chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that can be used for many diseases and symptoms affecting the musculoskeletal system, instead of or in addition to other medical or surgical treatment and physiotherapy.
In February 2014, the outpatient chiropractic clinic opened its doors in the Balgrist University Hospital. The clinic is a training centre for future chiropractors. These trainees treat patients under the supervision of selected experienced chiropractors who are leading figures in their field throughout Switzerland.
What sort of conditions do chiropractors treat?
Chiropractors treat many complaints that originate in the spine. These include:
- Acute or chronic neck or low back pain
- Pain in the thoracic spine
- Pain radiating into the arms or the legs
- Pain in the peripheral joints (e.g. hips, shoulders, elbows)
Treatment is suitable for all age groups, including babies, young children and elderly persons.
Outpatient chiropractic clinic
The outpatient chiropractic clinic is a training centre for future chiropractors to refine their diagnostic and therapeutic skills in the final year of their studies. A selected group of experienced chiropractors ensure the considerable manual medical skills required.
Working closely with other musculoskeletal specialists at the Balgrist University Hospital (in orthopaedics, rheumatology, radiology, sports medicine, neurology, physiotherapy and occupational therapy) allows the comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic care of patients with problems in the musculoskeletal system. Such close cooperation is unique and a sign of forward-looking medicine that is orientated to the individual needs of the patient.
Six-year course (bachelor’s and master’s) in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Zurich.
Planning, development, and execution of research projects in chiropractic are being carried out together with the Interdisciplinary Spinal Research (ISR) group. You can find more information at: www.spinalresearch.ch.
