Structural vs. Conventional Chiropractic

Conventional Chiropractic

Traditional Chiropractic focuses on goals such as decreasing muscle spasms, increasing range of motion, and the temporary reduction of pain. This is how most chiropractors practice and most of them do a great job. However, it falls under the category of symptom relief/symptom management aka “band-aid” care.

Structural Chiropractic

At Northside Chiropractic, our focus is on Structural Corrections.

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 crack, 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 Chiropractic looks for the underlying shifts in the spine that might be causing your foundation to be off.
In the vast majority of cases that make their way to our practice, is a significant Structural Shift. These Structural Shifts are the underlying cause that often reveal themselves as “symptoms”- or what we refer to as Secondary conditions.

Get Back to Normal

Rather than constantly repairing damage, we focus on fixing the underlying shift and help you reach Normal Structure.

Our services are not for everyone. However, if you are tired of constantly patching the problem and you are looking for a long-term solution that you can both feel and see for yourself, then Northside Chiropractic may be be the right place for you.
