SPECIFIC SEGMENTAL CORRECTION VS CONVENTIONAL CHIROPRACTIC
A large majority of chiropractors run their practices based on a model which can be defined as conventional chiropractic. Conventional chiropractors primarily focus on (i) decreasing muscle spasm, (ii) increasing range of motion, and (iii) reducing pain. With these goals in mind, there are many conventional chiropractic centres that do a good job at providing this way of symptomatic care.
At CORRECTIVE CHIROPRACTIC, our focus is on Specific Segmental Correction.
Visualise a car having a framework that has been forced or bent out of alignment. This is a structural abnormality which would then lead to secondary conditions, such as (i) its tyres wearing out unevenly, (ii) steering wheel pulling in one direction, and (iii) shaking and vibrations when being driven.
Precious time, energy, and money can be spent fixing these secondary conditions, but with the expectation that in a short time, the problems can reappear and will have to be repaired over and over again.
It makes more sense to FIRST focus on checking the framework and correcting any structural issues that may exist.
Similar to the framework of the car, the spine is the foundation of our bodies. Structural issues and abnormalities of the spine may be the underlying cause of a myriad of symptoms.
At CORRECTIVE CHIROPRACTIC, our objective is to correct underlying structural abnormalities of the spine known as Segmental Dysfunction.
