What’s a NeuroStructural Shift?
In healthcare, there are established normal values for many things. There’s a standard for normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, and normal vision. It doesn’t mean that we expect everyone to have a PERFECT measure, but there are healthy ranges for people depending on their age and situation.
At Corrective Chiropractic, we are looking for a three dimensional shift of the spine away from normal. If the head and neck shifts in 3 directions, it will cause the shoulders to unlevel and/or twist, the hips to shift, and one leg to be functionally short, forcing the entire spine out of alignment. These shifts will cause the muscles to spasm, the ligaments to deform, and disrupt the NERVES traveling down the spinal cord.
The primary condition that we work with is called Atlas Displacement Complex or commonly called atlas subluxation.
Neuro-Structural Chiropractic vs. Traditional Chiropractic
Traditional chiropractors focus on goals like decreasing muscular spasm, increasing range of motion, and reducing pain. This is how most chiropractors practice, and I believe most of them are great at what they do. It falls under the umbrella category of symptom relief/symptom management.
Think of your spine as the foundation for a building. If the foundation was off, would you expect the floors to creak, the walls to crack, and windows to break down? Now you can spend time patching all the damage, but you would be doing so with the expectation that in a short time the problems will have to be…..?
….Repaired Again….and Again….
And suddenly instead of achieving a true correction, we’re relying on chiropractic like a natural (and sometimes expensive) aspirin.
Get Back to Normal!
Rather than constantly repairing damage, at Corrective Chiropractic, we’ve chosen to fix the underlying foundation and help your spine reach a more Normal Structure.
Of course our services aren’t for everyone. However, if you are tired of constantly patching the problem and you’re looking for a long-term solution that you can both feel AND see for yourself, then Corrective Chiropractic may be the right place for you. Once the foundation has been fixed, then we’ll teach you how to keep it that way through customized recommendations designed for your spine, so that the problem doesn’t come back.
