Traditional chiropractic typically attempts to:
- increase range of motion
- reduce muscular spasm
- relieve pain
In our opinion these are excellent goals that most chiropractic clinics are great at obtaining, including us.
At Advanced Chiropractic we have taken it one step further by attempting to find the underlying CAUSE of your condition. During a thorough examination we determine if the cause of your condition is a structural shift from what we consider normal structure. What is that, you may ask?
Think of your spine as the foundation of a building. If the foundation is off, would you expect the floors to creak, the walls to creak, and for the windows to not close properly? Now you can spend time patching the damages, but with the expectation that in a short time the problems will have to be repaired again and again. Advanced Chiropractic looks for the underlying sructural shift that might be causing your foundation to be off in the first place.
How can the framework of your body be the cause of your symptoms? It has to do with the relationship the spinal column has with your nerve system. The vertebrae act as protective armour for the delicate soft spinal cord/nerves, which are like highways full of information flowing between the brain and the body. Abnormal structural integrity can alter the integration of this sensory information and thus the way your brain communicates with your body.
We at Advanced Chiropractic attempt to restore the normal structural design so that the brain can process the correct information and regain control (homeostasis) in the body. Typically then the symptoms, which we like refer to as Secondary Conditions, go away.
