To understand how our office differs from others, let’s explore what traditional chiropractic offers.
Traditional chiropractic concentrates on TEMPORARILY:
- Increasing range of motion
- Alleviating muscle tension and spasm
- Relieving of pain
To us, these are great outcomes and we know many patients that have regained their active life as a result of traditional chiropractic care.
However, traditional chiropractic is designed to temporarily fix the issue and does not address the hidden cause of your conditions. Many patients will still elect to receive this type of temporary relief care. There are many traditional chiropractors in the area that can address your conditions with that approach and we can refer you to their offices.
Those who have gotten sick of “duct-taping” their condition will often find themselves in a Structural Chiropractor’s office. That is because the goals at Specific Chiropractic go beyond simple temporary relief or pain management and instead focus on Structural Correction.
Structural Correction is an all-inclusive plan of care that is designed to get at the true cause of the problem by improving AND correcting the underlying condition. In our office the underlying condition is a Structural Shift that leads to your Secondary Conditions.
What would happen if the foundation of your house shifted? What visual changes would you see on the inside of your home indicating a foundation/structural change? (to be discussed later)
Structural Chiropractors use up-to-date objective tools to determine whether a Structural Shift has occurred and how severe it is. This provides the basis for our comprehensive plan of care that doesn’t just stop when you leave our office. By focusing on Structural Correction, we are best equipped to determine when a Structural Shift is present and what the best course of treatment is to correct it and resolve your Secondary Conditions.
