Since the central nervous system is the master control system of the body, it’s especially important to maintain its health. When the spine misaligns, pressure on the spinal cord and nerves can occur. This is called a vertebral subluxation complex. Chiropractic actively works to correct subluxations by thoroughly analyzing and gently adjusting the spine. The practice enables proper central nervous system functionality and natural healing throughout the body.
What Is Principled Chiropractic Care?
Principled Chiropractic Care operates on a model of maintaining and preserving optimal health throughout your life, not just when you are feeling symptoms.
Symptom-alleviating chiropractic care can effectively provide temporary relief, but true actual Principled Correction can provide you with life-long benefits. The alternative is to merely correct minor problems while ignoring the underlying major cause(s).
Principled Chiropractic Care works against this “sick care” model. Instead of waiting until pain has begun, Dr. Omar Clark recommends regular visits to ensure that you maintain your spinal health for years to come. After all, you wouldn’t wait until you had a cavity to start brushing your teeth! The same applies for your spinal health. You should never have to wait for injury or pain before making your first visit to Experience Family Chiropractic.
At Experience Family Chiropractic we specialize in detecting, analyzing, and correcting vertebral subluxation at its source to provide true relief and peak nervous system performance. Through advanced techniques and technology, we make it our primary goal to learn how to effectively maintain health for your spine and nervous system to create a happier, healthier life.
How Principled Chiropractic Care Models Work
Although many chiropractors specialize in providing temporary relief, the practice of chiropractic care was never intended to work that way. From its inception, over 110 years ago, Chiropractic Care was designed to be a principled form of healthcare. The objective of Principled Chiropractic is to locate and identify the underlying cause(s) of one’s health concerns and correct them at their source.
This targeted form of care alleviates underlying conditions, rather than simply correcting their outward symptoms. Doing otherwise would be like treating a heart attack by trying to correct pain or numbness in the arms. Ignoring or misinterpreting underlying warning signs in chiropractic care only leads to further outward symptoms that distract from the major spinal or nervous system issue at hand. Even worse, our body’s natural ability to adapt to problematic conditions can lead to more severe side effects over time.
An example of such a commonly occurring problem is when one injures the small vertebral bones at the base of his or her neck through repetitive stress, friction or traumatic incidents like slip-and-falls. The resulting change in head posture can cause one’s rib-cage to bend or shift, along with muscle groups in the lower spine and pelvis, reducing pressure on the spinal nerves. This revised posture is a relative improvement, but the imbalanced pressures remains on the vertebral discs and causes them to gradually and progressively wear out.
