Structural Chiropractic vs Traditional Chiropractic

Traditional Chiropractic has the following goals: 


  • Decrease muscle spasm
  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce pain.


Most chiropractors have been doing this for a long time and they are great at what they do.  However, it falls under the umbrella of "symptom relief/symptom management".


​Structural Chiropractic


Structural Chiropractors take an engineering approach to the spine.

 

Think of your spine as the foundation for a building. If the foundation was off, would you expect the floors to creak, the walls to creak and for the windows to not close properly?


Now you can spend time patching all the damage, but you would be doing so with the expectation that in a short time the problems will have to be... 


....Repaired Again and Again...


Structural Correction looks for the underlying Structural Shifts in the spine that might be causing your foundation to be off.


These Structural Shifts are the underlying cause that often reveal themselves as “symptoms”- or what we refer to as Secondary Conditions.

Rather than constantly repairing the damage, Dr Pikula focuses on fixing the underlying  Structural Shifts and help your spine reach Normal Structure.


If you are tired of frequently patching the problem and are looking for a long term solution that you can both feel AND see for yourself, then Balanced Chiropractic may be the right place for you.  Once the foundation has been fixed, we’ll teach you how to keep it that way.

Our patient care is always specific to the individual, and is never the same for each patient.
