What Are Your Goals?
To see if you are a good fit in our office, you need to first think about your goals. Typically people seeking Chiropractic care are looking to get rid of whatever symptoms are bothering them. We understand that. Unless someone is educated on what Chiropractic is, we don’t expect people to walk in our office and say “I feel great, may I get an adjustment?” While we are concerned about your symptoms, our goal is to find the underlying cause of your symptoms.
What is a symptom?
Have you ever thought about it? We know we have a fever because we know what normal body temperature is. We know we have a headache because we know what it feels like to not have one. We know we have high blood pressure because we know what a normal blood pressure range should be. The body uses symptoms to let us know something potentially more serious is wrong. These symptoms are what we like to call secondary conditions.
Our job is to take a look at these secondary conditions and along with various testing, detect what is the Primary condition. A structural (spinal) shift is a condition that can be the cause of your symptoms and is something we specialize in. When the spine shifts it can constrict the spinal nerves causing the body to function abnormally. With this abnormal function, secondary conditions start to appear. If it is something we can help with, we will recommend a course of action. If we cannot help, we will be sure to point you in the right direction. We are not here to waste your time or money.
What makes our office different?
Most chiropractors focus their goals on the temporary relief of musculoskeletal symptoms, decreasing muscle spasm, and increasing range of motion utilizing a combination of chiropractic, massage, physical therapy, nutrition and other modalities. These are excellent goals and there are many chiropractors in the area that do an excellent job at providing you with this kind of chiropractic care. In our office we focus on one thing, the Chiropractic adjustment with the goal of correcting spinal structural shifts which in turn helps your body to function better. When your body functions better, your body begins to heal itself.
