Focusing on Neuro-Structural Correction Most chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists focus on relieving your symptoms. You can go to any one of these professionals and there is no doubt that any one of them will make you feel better. However, if your condition is related to a Neuro-Structural shift in the spine, then you may require someone who focuses on the area of chiropractic called Neuro-Structural Correction.
Structure and Function Think about it like this: If a house is not resting correctly on its foundation, then what you have is known as a structural abnormality. Could the foundational issue result in a series of problems? Could that shift of foundation cause the walls to crack...the floors to creak... the windows to get stuck? Should we fill in the crack on the wall, put another nail in the floor, and put some WD-40 on the window, or should we first check the foundation and frame of the house and correct any issues that may exist? What makes the most sense? Most chiropractors focus on the symptoms. Again, there's nothing wrong with that. From their perspective, when the symptoms have been addressed, the condition is no longer an issue. Meanwhile, what do you think will happen to the walls, the floor, and the window if we don't focus our attention on the foundation, which as we both KNOW is the underlying cause?
What is a Neuro-Structural Shift A Neuro-Structural shift is a slight misalignment or fixation of the spine that impacts both spinal biomechanics (how the joints move) and distorts communication within the nervous system.
Secondary Conditions Because of the effects of Neuro-Structural Shifts of the spine and it's implications within the nervous system and the mechanics of the spine, secondary conditions present in different ways at different times in life. Some examples:
Neuro-Structural shifts cause obstructions to optimal neural communication and biomechanics which then can cause a multitude of secondary conditions as listed above. The doctors at Rhinebeck Chiropractic use state of the art examination techniques to detect Neuro-Structural Shifts.
