Wow, where do I start? I will try to brief here.

First, conventional chiropractic care is excellent in its own right, but it has very different goals from Structural Correction. Conventional care is focused around increasing range of motion, relieving muscle spasm, and the temporary relief of pain. At Structural Chiropractic we focus on correcting the underlying structure of your spine in order to relieve any secondary conditions that may be present.

The spine is akin to the foundation of your house and we all know what happens when the foundation of your home is not structurally sound!

Structural correction and conventional correction are terms often used in different fields to describe distinct approaches or techniques.

Chiropractic Care

In chiropractic care, structural correction refers to the process of identifying and correcting misalignments or abnormalities in the spine and other joints. This approach aims to restore proper alignment and function, which is believed to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall health. Structural correction techniques may involve spinal adjustments, manual manipulations, or specialized instruments.

Conventional chiropractic care, on the other hand, may encompass a broader range of treatments, including pain management techniques, physical therapy modalities, and general health advice. It may focus on symptom relief rather than addressing underlying structural issues exclusively.

Structural Correction

Structural correction in chiropractic care focuses on identifying and correcting the underlying structural issues in the spine and other joints. It aims to restore proper alignment and function to the musculoskeletal system. This approach recognizes that misalignments can impact not only the immediate area but also the overall body’s balance and function. Structural correction techniques may involve specific analysis of the spine, X-rays, and precise adjustments tailored to individual needs. The goal is to address the root cause of the problem and promote long-term spinal health.

Conventional Correction

Conventional correction, in chiropractic care, generally refers to a more symptom-based approach. It aims to provide relief from pain, discomfort, or limited mobility. Conventional techniques often focus on reducing immediate symptoms through various methods such as spinal adjustments, joint mobilization, soft tissue therapy, or therapeutic exercises. While conventional correction may offer temporary relief, it may not necessarily address the underlying structural issues causing the symptoms. It typically focuses on managing the presenting symptoms rather than achieving long-term structural improvements.

It’s important to note that the terms “structural correction” and “conventional correction” are not universally defined in chiropractic care and may vary depending on individual practitioners or schools of thought. The choice of approach may depend on the specific needs and preferences of the patient, as well as the practitioner’s training and expertise.
