Corrective chiropractic care is different in that the objective is to correct a primary problem in the structural alignment of the body.
Just as a building needs a secure foundation the body requires proper alignment to be it’s strongest. Without it, the building and the body will have significant problems, and, these problems will get worse over time. These problems are more commonly called “symptoms”.
Symptoms, are more accurately described as “Secondary Conditions” because they are a result of another primary issue.
If your body has significant structural problems, a focused, structural approach is required. Just as there are specialists who do construction work on building foundations, there are also chiropractors who do structural work on your foundation.
Structural Problems Require Structural Solutions
Rather than constantly patching and repairing the damage, you can choose to fix the underlying cause of your problems and help your spine reach “Normal Structure.”
Of course, Corrective care isn’t for everyone. It requires the patient and the doctor be proactive and goal oriented, working off the findings of spinal X-rays to identify issues and quantify changes throughout the course of care. So, if your goals don’t include addressing the root cause, we can recommend other types of care or providers who will help your pain. Structural correction requires time and effort. It is not a quick fix answer to a longstanding problem, but it is a long-term solution.
If you are tired of constantly patching the problem, then this option may be right for you. If you’re looking for a solution that you can both feel and see for yourself, then ask your provider at your next visit.
Good news is, once the foundation has been fixed, we’ll teach you how to keep it that way.
The best approach to health is to be proactive and not reactive. Just like brushing your teeth to avoid cavities or sticking to a diet and regular exercise program, seeing your chiropractor and massage therapist on a regular basis will help avoid injury and the setbacks associated with them.
