Traditional chiropractic focuses on relieving your symptoms, such as back pain, neck pain and headaches. There is no doubt that you will feel better after traditional chiropractic care. However if your condition is related to a NeuroStructural shift of the spine, then you may require someone who focuses on the area of chiropractic called NeuroStructural Integration.
Think of it like this: If a house is not resting correctly on its foundation, then what you have is known as a structural abnormality. Could the foundation issue result in a series of problems? Could that shift of the foundation cause the walls to crack, the floors to creak, the windows to get stuck, etc.? Should we fill in the crack on the wall, put another nail in the floor and some WD-40 on the window, or should we FIRST check the foundation and the frame of the house and correct any issues that may exist? What makes more sense? Most chiropractors focus on the symptoms. Again, there’s nothing wrong with that. From their perspective, when symptoms have been addressed, the condition is no longer an issue. Meanwhile, what do you think will happen to the walls, the floor and the window if we don’t focus our attention on the foundation, which as we both KNOW, is the underlying cause.
At Catalyst Chiropractic we perform a through Neurostructural exam, in order to access the extent, if any of a Neurostructual Shift. Depending on the results of that exam we will create a plan for your care specific to your situation. Along with focusing on correction of your specific Neurostructural shift, we will make complementary recommendation to help your get the best benefit from your care. These recommendations could involve corrective exercises, and nutritional counseling.
