The difference between Us and other Chiropractors… Most people don't know that there are two types of chiropractors. Although they go by the same name, chiropractors today differ greatly in technique and philosophy. Many chiropractors merely work on back pain symptoms alone, using manipulation, electrotherapies, tens units and ultrasound. When symptoms improve, the patient assumes their spinal alignment is fixed. In most cases the spinal joints have merely been decompressed and pain is temporarily relieved. In our clinic, we actually correct the spinal alignment back to its normal model and show you the results with Before and After X-Rays. The spine must be in its normal alignment to maximize nerve integrity and insure proper stability and function. Similar to a car’s wheel, if the spine is left out of alignment, it will progressively wear and tear even if there may be no symptoms. Over time however, the discs, joints and nerves will wear out just like a car tire, axle and bearing. Eventually there may be symptoms and permanent damage. When we correct the spine’s alignment, we utilize a three dimensional postural analysis to identify the relationships between the head, torso, hips, legs and feet. Full spinal x-rays are taken and angle and arc measurements are compared to the normal model. The secret to correcting the spine’s alignment involves changing nerve muscle memory by influencing slow and fast nerve receptors to tell muscles to pull differently, thus aligning the vertebrae. Three dimensional postural specific adjusting, mirror image exercises and simple office and home rehab are done with predicable results. When the spine’s alignment is restored to its normal model, not only are symptoms relieved, but long standing spinal correction is achieved for better stability and function. A simple maintenance program is given to each patient so they can maintain their normal spinal alignment throughout their lifetime. So five, ten years from now you are not suffering from degeneration, arthritis, nerve damage, disc problems and possible permanent damage. Maintaining a correction is smarter and more cost effective then “managing a problem” which can inevitably become permanent.
