Foundational Chiropractic vs Traditional Chiropractic
In order to understand what we do we first must be clear on what we don’t do. A traditional chiropractor’s goal is 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.
The Foundational Difference:
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 to a variety of secondary conditions (symptoms) that you may be experiencing. Our doctors are 2 of 300 doctors in the country trained and proficient in the NUCCA protocol for Foundational Correction. What does that mean for you as the patient?
- If a Foundational Shift is detected, our doctors create an individually tailor and calculated correction plan to restore your spinal alignment to a normal range.
- Low-force Foundational Correction – no popping, twisting, cracking.
- Long term correction – our goal is for the patient to maintain the correction, rather than needing to be adjusted over and over again. SEE AND FEEL the difference.
To further understand the nature of a Foundational Shift, consider that if a house has a poor foundation, you may find it leads to cracks in the walls, windows that do not close correctly, and floorboards that creak. One may choose to continuously address these individual issues (symptoms) by filling in the cracks, lubricating the windows, and hammering another nail in the floor. However, the reality is that these individual issues will likely continue recurring until the underlying cause (foundation) is corrected.
