Structural Vs Traditional Chiropractic
Our Unique Approach
To understand what makes Thrive Chiropractic unique, we must first understand goals of traditional chiropractic. Traditional Chiropractors are great at decreasing muscle spasms, increasing range of motion and temporarily reducing pain. This is how most chiropractors practice and they do an incredible job. However, this type of “patch” treatment is considered symptom relief/management, or as we call it “Band-Aid® care”.
At Thrive Chiropractic, we focus on Structural Corrective Care. As we all know, our body’s functions are controlled by the nervous system, and the nervous system is protected by the bony segments of the spine. If a bone in the spine slips out of place (Structural Shift), it can cause swelling and inflammation of the surrounding tissues, which may lead to interference in the nervous system as well as serve as a starting point for secondary conditions (degeneration and arthritis within the spine, etc). Through a comprehensive Structural examination, we locate dysfunction within the spine and address it with specific Corrective Adjustments.
Get Back to Normal
Rather than focus on, “Band-Aid® care”, at Thrive Chiropractic we aim to help your spine regain a normal structure.
Structural Care is not for everyone. If you are looking for a long-term solution rather than “Band-Aid® care” or short-term symptom relief, our office may be for you. Our extensive Structural examination procedures will help us get a better picture of IF we can help you, HOW LONG it may take, and WHAT we can do to improve your overall health. The results that we achieve in our office are ones that you can not only FEEL, but SEE through our reexamination procedures.
Once your structure is back to normal, we strive to give you the tools to maintain your progress so your secondary conditions do not return.
