What’s the Difference Between Neurostructural and Traditional Chiropractic?

There are numerous approaches which can be taken towards dealing with secondary conditions. Both conventional and alternative healthcare practitioners can assist in alleviating symptoms and helping you to live a pain free life, and it’s well worth seeking the opinion of a wide range of health professionals. There are a few key differences to be aware of between conventional chiropractic and neuro-structural chiropractic care which we will explore below.

Conventional Chiropractic
The goals of traditional chiropractic are typically centred around symptom relief and management. Specially trained to advise on conditions related to the bones, muscles and joints, traditional chiropractors can provide you with a range of exercises which will relieve your symptoms and assist you in leading a pain free and mobile life.

Traditional chiropractors have three main goals, which include:

  • Reducing the incidence of muscular spasms
  • Delivering a temporary reduction in pain
  • Increasing your range of motion

These goals are all highly achievable by traditional chiropractic, however neurostructural chiropractors take a slightly different approach.

Neurostructural Chiropractic
Neurostructural chiropractic care is centred around addressing the underlying cause of common secondary conditions, so that a long-term solution can be delivered. This is achieved by focussing closely on correcting any structural shifts within the nervous system and spine, which may be causing your secondary conditions.

The spine serves as the body’s central support structure, and it is what enables us to function within our daily lives. It helps to protect the spinal cord and nerves, and also enables us to sit, stand upright, twist, bend and walk. Any injuries to the spine or the presence of a spinal cord condition can cause pain in other areas of the body.

Some of the more common Neuro-Structural Abnormalities Include:

  • Headache
  • Vertigo/Dizziness
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Shoulder/arm pain
  • Hip/leg pain
  • Postural issues
  • Disc injuries

It is important to address any neuro-structural abnormalities as soon as possible, as this will help in achieving optimal bodily function and symptom relief. Once normal spinal structure and neurological function has been achieved, you should start to notice a significant improvement in your symptoms.

In essence, neuro-structural chiropractic is aimed at achieving true. Correction, delivering a long term-solution rather than a band-aid solution.
