Based on this process, the specialist in Postural Correction will prepare an individualized Plan of Adjustments, suited to each person’s condition.

    Next, personal data are entered into the Pro-Adjuster computer system, which allows for the specialist to understand with great detail the specific levels of alignment or misalignment of each person’s spine. This personal information will then be available on the computer, so that the Specialist can refer to it at each adjustment session

During the adjustment session, the Specialist will apply Pro-Adjuster’s pulses of force resonance over the affected vertebrae or areas with the help of proper equipment, observing their corrective effects on the computer. Through this process, the individual is subject to a soft and effective adjustment of the spine, thereby decreasing or eliminating the existent subluxation, with all the benefits that come with it. The adjustment will not only bring about effective benefits to the functioning of the nervous system, but it will also help relieve the pain!

    A subluxation is a pressure on a nerve that arises from the misalignment of a vertebra of the spine. This situation may lead from a very simple ill feeling to a varied set of symptoms, such as a headache, fatigue, sleep disturbances, sinusitis and allergies or pain in any part of the body.

    There are many situations that give rise to a subluxation, like na accident, a bad posture, an incorrect diet, lack of exercise, damages caused by giving birth, by exercises, stress or others.

    Nearly every single person, at some point in their lives, will end up going through this experience. However, in many cases, symptoms only show up much later.

  • What should I do to book a Spine and Nervous System exam at Global Wellness?

    That’s simple! Just cal our Center at Parque das Nações, in Lisbon. In the first instance, we will ask you to bring us any recent X-rays of your spine (cervical, dorsal and lumbar). However, you are welcome to bring any medical exams that you’ve got, such as CT scans, MRIs, EMGs, blood test results and surgical reports. These will help us understand your specific situation better.

  • How long will I take to get better?

    Global Wellness believes that the well-being is directly related with a healthy lifestyle: healthy spine, physical exercise and adequate nutrition. The alignments must be seen as a preventive measure, not just a curative one. Only then can one guarantee their well-being on a continuing basis.

    If your quality of life is already being affected by a misaligned spine, your recovery period will depend on a number of factors:

    • How long have you been witnessing the symptoms/pain
    • The severity of your situation and of the associated clinical history
    • If you regularly exercise or not
    • If you comply or not with the recommendations of the Global Wellness specialist.

    Similarly to what happens with physical exercise, after concluding a program of Postural Correction, one should continue to attend a maintenance program so as to maintain a healthy spine and a proper functioning of the nervous system and associated organs.
