Structural versus traditional chiropractic:
Traditional chiropractors work to treat minor aches and pains by;
Increasing range of motion
Decreasing muscle spasms
There are a number of these style of chiropractors around and for the most part,
they do excellent work.
In our office we focus on structural correction. Why structural correction? Because
structure begets function. When there is a structural shift(s) in the spine , then
there are likely to be secondary problems that arise.
So what is a structural shift?
This is when an event, or a collection of events, lead to damage of the neuro-spinal
This shift then starts to create secondary conditions. The most obvious would
be that the muscles have to work harder to keep them upright.
By focusing on the origin, the structural shift, and working on correcting that,
we can help by minimizing the chance that the secondary conditions recur.
