An Introduction to Back to Health Chiropractic...
The majority of chiropractors, and the chiropractic profession as a whole, are what would be characterized as "conventional/traditional". Conventional/traditional chiropractors are excellent at helping someone find relief by decreasing muscle tension, increasing range of motion, and of course, temporarily reducing pain. There are many wonderful conventional chiropractors in this area, virtually all of whom are very capable practitioners. There are some chiropractors who pursue additional training and certifications allowing them to focus on other areas of chiropractic. Here at Back to Health Chiropractic we strive to correct the underlying cause through structural correction and not merely offer only temporary relief.
Our focus at Back to Health Chiropractic is called STRUCTURAL CORRECTION, the goal of which is to offer LONG-TERM CORRECTION of the underlying cause of your symptoms and not merely putting a "band-aid" on your condition. The purpose of Structural Correction is to precisely narrow in on the underlying structural shifts in the spine that are typically responsible for a myriad of symptoms, properly known as Secondary Conditions. Some of these secondary conditions include neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches, migraines, numbness/tingling, loss of strength, muscular imbalance, and of course, extremity symptoms.
After a discussion and evaluation so we have a thorough history and a full understanding of your current health condition, our goal is to explain to you in very simple terms exactly what is a structural shift and how we determine - with complete certainty - if they are present in your spine. We will then customize a corrective care plan to efficiently restore your health to an optimal level. We will answer your four main questions which are 1) What is wrong, 2) Can we help, 3) How long will it take, and 4) How much will it cost.
The goal at Back to Health Chiropractic is to help you understand the benefits of being proactive with your health. Symptoms are almost always the end result of an underlying problem that has been left untreated for too long (i.e., the first symptom of a heart attack is a heart attack, even though it took years of plague buildup to lead to it.) Much like a fire alarm in a house fire, it doesn't make sense to remove the batteries so you don't hear the beeping - you must put out the fire! Pain pills only mask the issue allowing the underlying problem to only get worse. Once we have corrected your structural abnormalities, we will show you how to protect the progress that you've made under our care so that you not only feel great today and tomorrow, but for months, years and decades down the road.
We are very excited to have you as a patient at Back to Health Chiropractic!
