What’s A Structural Shift?
In healthcare, there are established normal values for many things. There’s a standard for normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, and normal vision. It doesn’t mean that we expect everyone to have a PERFECT measure, but there are healthy ranges for people depending on their age and situation.
At Precision Chiropractic, we are looking for a significant Structural Shift of the spine away from normal. If the head and neck shifts abnormally, it will cause the shoulders to twist, and the hips to shift forcing the entire spine out of alignment. These shifts will cause the muscles to spasm, the ligaments to deform, and disrupt the NERVES traveling down the spinal cord.
The primary condition that we work with is called Structural Shift or commonly called subluxation.
There are similar measurements that we can take and view in the rest of the spine that can affect your health.
