what is a structural shift?

   

If your car is out of alignment you can expect to see abnormal wear and tear on the tires, as well as potential steering problems. Should you simply purchase new tires as they continue to wear out at an accelerated rate, or should you find someone who Specializes in correcting the car's alignment?


Similarly, if there is a Structural Shift present in your spine, it can lead to a variety of Secondary Conditions, or symptoms, throughout your body. If your head and neck shift out of position, this is no different than your car being forced out of alignment.


​Rather than focusing on symptom management, chiropractors who focus on Structural Chiropractic identify Structural Shifts and create a plan of care Specific to the patient to restore the Structural Integrity of the spine.
