WHAT IS A STRUCTURAL SHIFT?
If your car was out of alignment you may expect to see abnormal wear and tear on the tires and problems steering. You could simply change the tires each time they continue to wear out at an accelerated rate, or you could find someone who specializes in correcting the alignment.
In a similar way, if there is a Structural Shift in the spine, it can lead to a variety of secondary conditions, or symptoms throughout the body. If the head and neck shift out of position, it can force the rest of the spine out of alignment. When the spine shifts, it can cause mechanical irritation of the spinal cord and nerves as they exit the spine. This can not only cause shooting pain, numbness, tingling and muscle weakness - it can also lead to a myriad of secondary conditions like migraines and fatigue.
Rather than focusing on symptom management, chiropractors who focus on Structural Correction aim to identify structural abnormalities and create a plan of care specific to the patient to restore the structural integrity of the spine.
WHAT ARE SECONDARY CONDITIONS?
When the structure of the spine has shifted, it can lead to a variety of secondary conditions. The reason we refer to these as secondary conditions is because they tend to be the result of a primary Structural Shift. Focusing only on the elimination of secondary conditions and not addressing the underlying structure is like taking a lawnmower to a yard full of dandelions and expecting them not to come back. Unless you address the problem at the root level, the dandelions will come right back. Our focus is on correcting the underlying problem as opposed to temporarily making the secondary conditions disappear.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?
Our goal at Revolution Chiropractic is to make sure that our patients are equipped with as much information as possible before they make decisions regarding their health. There are a number or ways to manage symptoms and we will make sure to discuss those options during your consultation. We understand that our services aren't for everyone, and if we don't seem like a good fit for your needs, we will help you find a local option.
We work closely with local doctors, massage therapists, physical therapists and nurse practitioners to make sure patients are receiving the best care possible.
