NeuroStructural Correction vs. Traditional Chiropractic
Traditional Chiropractic is intended to relieve or manage symptoms and focuses on reducing muscle spasm, reducing pain, and increasing range of motion. Most chiropractors practice this way and they are good at it, but what we do at Foundation Chiropractic Co. is different. We look beyond managing your symptoms.
At Foundation Chiropractic Co. we focus on NeuroStructural Correction.
The spine is the foundation of our body, our posture, and our health. So for a moment, think of the foundation of a building. If the foundation were off, then we would expect the floors to creak, the walls to crack, and the windows would not close properly. You could repair and patch these problems, but you should understand that it would only be a temporary fix. Eventually these problems will return and you will be forced to repair them again and again.
In our office, we detect and analyze any structural shifts in your spine. These shifts are the underlying cause of many symptoms (or what we call secondary conditions). By correcting these shifts we actually correct the cause of your secondary conditions, rather than manage them. We understand that our services aren’t for everyone, but if you are looking for long-term relief instead of a quick fix then we are the place for you.
What is a Structural Shift?
In healthcare there are established normal values or ranges for most things. For example, we know that there is a healthy normal value for blood pressure, for body temperature, for vision, for cholesterol levels, etc. We also know that when things fall outside of these normal values it leads to a state of disease or malfunction. What most people don’t realize is that there is also an established normal for the structure of our spine.
At Foundation Chiropractic Co., we locate any significant structural shifts away from that normal spinal structure. These shifts can cause postural imbalances, muscle tension, pain, and most importantly they can pinch and disrupt the NERVES coming off of our spinal cord. When the nerves are disrupted, the pathways between our brain and body suffer which causes symptoms or secondary conditions.
Rather than continually managing symptoms or addressing pain, we want to help you get back to NORMAL. We correct the primary condition (structural shift) so that your body can heal and eliminate the secondary conditions (symptoms).
When a structural shift occurs, it puts pressure on the spinal nerves and spinal cord, which disrupts proper nerve flow and communication within the body. This leads to symptoms or secondary conditions. We refer to them as secondary conditions because they are a result of the primary structural shift (the underlying cause).
The location of the structural shifts and which nerves are being compressed will give us an idea of what secondary conditions may be present. Common secondary conditions include: numbness & tingling, headaches, joint pains, asthma, lowered immune response, blood pressure irregularities, digestive dysfunction, and many more.
What Are Secondary Conditions?
There are a wide variety of treatment options available administered by different healthcare professionals. Most of these professionals focus on pain or symptom relief (secondary conditions), and they do a great job. People generally start with medication or herbal remedies that attempt to shut off pain receptors. If that doesn't work, then physiotherapy or massage is used to address muscle spasm or imbalance and increase range of motion in the joints. The next step is usually injections to calm the site of pain or muscle tension. Finally, more invasive procedures like surgery are recommended once the previous treatment options have stopped working.
All of these treatment options can be effective (depending on your goals for care) in the appropriate time and place. Our goal at Foundation Chiropractic Co. is to restore the structural integrity of your spine so that your body can function and heal itself optimally.
Our doctors continue to build relationships with other healthcare professionals in the community. If during the consultation or exam we find that our chiropractic approach isn't right for you, we will be sure to refer you to someone else who can help.
What Are My Options?
At Foundation Chiropractic Co., we focus on correcting your spinal structure. Our doctors are among a very select group of chiropractors who have additional education and are advanced certified in Torque Release Technique (TRT). The adjustments are specific, precise, gentle, and do NOT involve any forceful twisting or manipulating. This specificity allows for maximum acceptance so that we can begin to restore normal structure and get your body working the way it was designed to in the first place.
What Can Foundation Chiropractic Co. Do For Me?
Most of our patients are referred to us by other patients, their medical doctor, their current traditional chiropractor, or one of our local business partners in the community. The reason our practice is built on referrals is because of simplicity and transparency.
Here’s our process:
-Step 1: Schedule a complimentary consultation.
-Step 2: If you like what you hear, we’ll complete your NeuroStructural Examination or you can schedule one for a later date. We use state of the art technology (including Thermography scans and Structural X-ray analysis) to ensure that we are never guessing with your health.
-Step 3: After your exam, we will schedule you for your patient recommendation conference. This is when the doctors will reveal the results of your exam and explain how it is that we can help. If our office is not the right fit for you, then we will gladly help you find one that is.
It’s as simple as that!
