Before we have a conversation about what one of the biggest distinctions between a traditional chiropractic office and our practice is, we must first understand the goals of traditional chiropractic care.
The goals of traditional chiropractic are:
1) Temporary reduction in pain
2) Decreasing muscle spasm
3) Increasing range of motion
These are excellent goals and there are many chiropractors in the area that do an awesome job at providing you with traditional chiropractic care.
At Goodwin Chiropractic, our objective & main focus is Structural Chiropractic Correction.
A majority of cases we serve at our practice, Goodwin Chiropractic, are often a referral from other chiropractors and medical doctors in the area, suffering from a significant Structural Shift in their spine. These Structural shifts are the underlying cause that often reveal themselves as “symptoms” – or what Structural Doctors refer to as Secondary Conditions. Structural Chiropractic Correction focuses exclusively on the correction of the underlying cause – the Structural Shifts.
While no one is structurally perfect, there is a normal range. In the same manner, we can understand what a fever is because we know what the normal temperature is, or knowing what constitutes high blood pressure because we are aware of the normal range. There are established normals almost everywhere we look, including the gauges and warning indicators on the dashboard of your car… letting you know when things are abnormal. The body uses symptoms as warning indicators of a potentially more serious condition. A Structural Shift is just such a condition that may be the cause of your symptoms. Our office focuses on detecting and correcting these shifts so that the body can heal on its own and you can be symptom-free.
