Foundational Chiropractic Vs. Traditional Chiropractic

The Basics:

Before getting into our focus, we want to be clear on what a traditional chiropractor attempts to accomplish. Typically they aim to:

  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce muscular spasm
  • Relieve or reduce pain

The majority of chiropractors take the traditional approach and do a great job at it. However, this type of care falls under the category of symptom relief or symptom management, otherwise known as “band aid” care.

At Balance Chiropractic, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment to determine the presence of a Foundational Shift of the spine, which is typically the underlying cause of numerous secondary conditions (symptoms) that you may be experiencing. If a Foundational Shift is detected, Our doctors creates a personalized plan to correct these abnormalities so that you can feel and look your absolute best.

To further understand the caustic nature of a Foundational Shift, consider that – if a house has a poor foundation, you may find that you see cracks in the walls, windows that may not close correctly, and floors that may squeak. One may choose to continuously address these individual issues (symptoms) by filling in the cracks, lubricating the windows and hammering another nail into the floor, but in all likelihood, the individual issues are likely to keep recurring until the underlying cause is corrected.

The upper bones of the neck, which is also the spinal region closest to your brain, acts as the foundation of your entire body. All of your organs, muscles, and connective tissue are built around it deeming it the most crucial area of your spine. Therefore, it is easy to understand the critical nature of undergoing a Comprehensive Foundational Examination to determine the presence (or lack thereof) of a Foundational Shift.

At Balance Chiropractic we offer a complimentary consultation (not a commitment) and use 4 Objective Measurements that not only uncover Foundational Shifts, but also quantify our Foundational Correction efforts during your unique plan of care. These Objective Measurements coupled with our Foundational Corrective techniques direct the body back towards normal position where it functions, heals and performs best.
