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 normal temperature should be, we can look at the spine and determine if a structural shift has occurred by comparing them to an established set of normal measurements. There are established normals almost everywhere we look, from the gauges and warning indicators on the dashboard of your car to a headache in the middle of the day. These warning indicators/secondary conditions (symptoms) are meant to help us know when something is wrong so that we can take the proper actions to fix the root of the problem.
The body uses secondary conditions (symptoms) as warning indicators of a potentially more serious condition. A structural shift is a condition that me be the cause of your symptoms. Our office focuses on detecting and correcting these structural shifts so that the body can heal on its own and you can be symptom-free.
Structural shifts can occur due to a childhood fall, a sports injuries, an automobile accident, repetitive stress (such as sitting at a desk, looking at your electronic devices, job tasks on assembly line, etc) or a variety of other seemingly innocuous injuries.
