What is a Neuro-Structural Shift?


While no one is structurally perfect, there is a normal range. In the same manner, we can understand what a fever is because we know what the normal temperature is. There are established "normals" almost everywhere we look, including the gauges and warning indicators on the dashboard of our cars… letting us know when things are abnormal.

The body uses symptoms as warning indicators of a potentially more serious condition. A Neuro-Structural Shift is just such a condition that may be the cause of your symptoms. Platinum Chiropractic focuses on detecting and correcting these shifts so that the body can heal on its own and you can function optimally. 

These Neuro-Structural Shifts create a fragile foundation that eventually results in Secondary Conditions. 

Think of your spine as the foundation of a building. If the foundation shifts, what would happen to the rest of the building? Cracks in the walls and foundation, and doors and windows that are hard to open? We could conceal these "symptoms" by continually covering the cracks, putting more screws in the floor, or applying lubrication in the window rails. However, the structure of the building is still in a shifted state and these conditions will continue to occur. . . .again and again.

When these Secondary Conditions arise (cracks in the wall, creaky floor -- neck pain, digestive complications, migraines), they are usually an obvious sign that a Neuro-Structural Shift has interrupted the signal that travels along the spinal nerves and spinal cord. The locations of your Neuro-Structural Shifts will be revealed in our Structural Examination and will give us an understanding of your Secondary Conditions.
