    section addressing common questions by patients, such as:

  1. What
    is chiropractic?
  2. Who
    could benefit from seeing a chiropractor?
  3. How
    to choose a chiropractor?
  4. What
    to expect at your first chiropractic visit?

Dr. André Marie Gonthier, Doctor of Chiropractic
and president of the Ordre,  is proud to
launch this new public portal for chiropractic information.

“We want
the public at large to have access to a reference site for chiropractic, with
information that is evidence-based and complete,” says Dr. Gonthier, “and
which, furthermore, is presented in a comprehensible and user-friendly
format.  In this way, the public can
enjoy navigating the site while learning about the profession.”

The site
was created as a way to reflect the fact that the profession of chiropractic
can offer a unique, yet solidly-established, service to Quebecers.  The Ordre wished to create a site showcasing
the natural and safe approach that is at the foundation of chiropractic. As
well, by adhering to a basic website design, which is, at the same time, easy
to navigate and very dynamic, the site promises to facilitate public discovery
and learning with respect to the profession.
