True Correction vs. Temporary Relief

While many chiropractors focus on relieving pain in the immediate short term, real correction is intended to allow for long-term improvements. Only through true correction can patients live a full, healthy and happy life of optimal bodily functions.

Your body is an amazing, but incredibly complex machine. Like the computer system it is, a single pathway that is out of place can cause an astounding number of problems in the vital functions of your organs, nerves, muscles and even your base cells. This framework and associated pathways start in the brain and travel throughout your spine and nervous system. Without good spinal health, your brain experiences a sub-optimal connection with the rest of your body.

When your spinal bones aren’t aligned properly, this can lead to a variety of health issues. From mobility problems to headaches, immune system dysfunction, and nerve pain, a chiropractor knows how to alleviate these problems using natural, hands-on and non-invasive approaches to correcting spinal misalignments and allow your body to once again heal itself as it should.

The Sick Care Health Model

The United States health care system is predicated on the model of “sick care”. That is, people receive medical attention after a problem arises rather than undertaking the right model of preventative care.

An alternative, and the system upon which principled chiropractic works, is preventative care, or routine maintenance for your body. Rather than waiting until you experience symptoms, your chiropractor encourages regular visits to allow you to maintain your spinal health for many years. Your body has an incredible capacity to heal itself, but only if it is properly maintained and allowed to do so.

Vertebral Subluxation Complex 

The vertebral subluxation complex is a serious condition that is far too often overlooked as the underlying cause of health issues. It occurs when the spine misaligns in such a way that pressure is placed on the nerves and spinal cord causing the aches, pains, and discomforts you live with everyday. This condition severely impacts the body’s natural healing abilities, and is what your chiropractor is uniquely qualified to address. At Authority Chiropractic, our staff can thoroughly examine and diagnose cases of vertebral subluxation and design an individualized plan of action to correct the issue.

Principled True Chiropractic Correction

This is what principled true chiropractic correction is all about. This form of health care is designed to get your body functioning at peak efficiency, and then keep it that way, maintaining your health over your entire life rather than just providing the short-term quick fix. The goal of principled chiropractic is to identify the underlying causes of any health problem the patient might experience, and address these problems at the source, allowing for more permanent or long-term fixes.

 Many times people want to focus on treating the symptoms of nervous system dysfunction, rather than treating the root cause- which is nervous system interference resulting from spinal misalignment. When it comes to true chiropractic correction vs. the temporary relief approach, the path becomes very clear. Why choose recurring pain and injury when you could restore and maintain your optimal health for life?
