If we were to ask you what normal blood pressure is, you might answer 120/80. Maybe you’re not even sure what that means exactly, but you know there is a normal value. In healthcare, there are normal values for not just blood pressure, but many things like blood sugar, heart rate, bone density, body mass and eyesight (to name a few). There will always be variations based on age, gender, ethnicity or a specific situation. No one needs to be perfect, but there are accepted ranges. Most of us are unaware there is also a normal when it comes to the structural alignment of the spine.
A structural dysfunction is any alignment abnormality or motion abnormality that causes your spine to shift from its normal structural alignment. When the body, in particular the spine, is unbalanced, the result may be a variety of secondary conditions (symptoms) such as pain, numbness/tingling, headaches, sciatica, hernia’s – just to name a few. Anything that adds stress to your body will subtract from your body’s ability to adapt to its environment, and may result in health challenges. At Thrive Chiropractic, rather than constantly repairing the damaged areas, we’ve chosen to focus on correcting the “underlying foundation” so that your spine reaches as much of its normal structure and function as possible.
Of course, our services aren’t for everyone. However, if you are tired of constantly patching up the problem areas and are looking for a more long-term solution that can both feel AND see for yourself, then Thrive Chiropractic may be the right place for you.
