The difference between Principled Chiropractic Corrective care and temporary relief care is the difference between optimal health and just feeling good.
Although Chiropractic is effective in providing patch-up or pain relief treatment, we have found correcting the spine offers long term benefits. This is why our office specializes in Principled Chiropractic care.
Thanks to technological advances and new understanding of the spine and nervous system, we are now able to correct the spine and use pre and post x-rays to document this change. These changes are achieved through a series of specialized gentle adjustments. If we are able to accept your case, a care plan will be recommended based on the pre-existing levels of degeneration in your spine, your age, levels of activity, and your response to an adjustment. Not every spine is correctable for us so we always start with a checkup to evaluate your potential for success in our office.
When a person seeks chiropractic care and when their chiropractor accepts them for chiropractic care, it is essential that they are both working toward the same goal. Traditionally, the focus of health care is centered around a persons symptoms and the treatment or relief of their symptoms. This is the entire basis for relief care. Today Chiropractic care is very well known for it’s ability to provide relief care and is often referred to as miraculous in it’s ability to provide relief where all other forms of health care have failed. However, although many chiropractors specialize in and are extremely successful with providing relief care, this was never the intended purpose for Chiropractic. Chiropractic from it’s inception over 110 years ago was designed to be a Principled form of health care. The goal or objective of Chiropractic is to identify the underlying cause of a person health challenge and to correct it. A condition of the spine known as Vertebral Subluxation interferes with the bodies natural ability to heal itself. Principled and Wellness Chiropractors locate Vertebral Subluxations, thoroughly analyze all of its components, design a specific program of adjustments and exercises to correct Vertebral Subluxations, and most importantly to help you and your family learn how to achieve a state of optimal health and how to maintain a healthy spine into the future.
To fully appreciate and understand this difference and the importance of Principled care let’s start by looking at the difference between “symptoms” and “warning signs”. The difference is best understood through a simple comparison. If a person sprains their ankle and they experience pain in their ankle – this is a direct relationship. The location of pain and the location of the injury are the same. This is a classic example of a symptom. However, if a person is suffering from heart disease and is experiencing pain into their left arm – there is likely nothing wrong with the left arm! This is a classic warning sign of a problem with the heart. It would seem quite silly – even foolish – to spend a tremendous amount of energy and resources treating a persons arm pain when the cause of this pain is coming from the heart.
