What’s the Difference Between Corrective Chiropractic Care and Crisis Care?

 What's the Difference Between Corrective Chiropractic Care and Crisis Care


Today I want to go through some examples of how corrective chiropractic care works. A lot of people ask me:

How is your care different than any other chiropractor I’ve been to?

So I want to make sure I show you that today.

One of the most important reasons we get the higher level of results we do is because we do a very specific initial evaluation. We’re able to measure the nervous system and how your body’s adapting to stress emotionally, physically and chemically through some very advanced technology, and we also do very thorough x-rays of every single patient that comes in to find out exactly what’s causing their problem, how long it’s been there, and what it’s going to take to be able to correct that.

Watch this video to learn how corrective chiropractic care can resolve your health issues.

How Do We Correct The Cause of Your Health Problems?

At New Life Chiropractic in Rocklin, the goal isn’t just to feel better temporarily. It’s not just getting a little bit of relief.

The goal is to correct the cause of the problem to restore function and health from the inside out. Your body is able to heal itself for a long-term natural solution.

Today I’m going to go through exactly what that looks like.

The Value of X-Rays

The most important test we do is an x-ray. Normally we will get an x-ray of the neck.

  • You should have a 45 degree curve.
  • Your head should be right back over your shoulders and there should be space up here at the top of the neck.

neck issues in patient

What’s happening with this patient is he’s losing the curve, only 15 degrees out of 45. The head is shifted 30 millimeters forward, which is an extra 15 pounds of stress sitting on his body. And you can see here the jagged edges – this is arthritis and degeneration that’s already showed up.

What does that mean if you have similar issues health wise?

  • Often when I see an x ray like this, I also see people with heart and lung problems because these are the nerves in this area that go right into the heart and the lungs.
  • I see people who are having energy problems, sleep problems, eyes, ears, nose, allergy problems, headaches, immune system problems, because you can see here, this is where the brain stem sits.

That’s all autonomic function in the body. So in this case, this person here, like many people I see, was struggling – with headaches, he’d had cancer twice, high blood pressure, heart problems, constant neck problems, and he had been to many different doctors.

He’d done chiropractic for years. He tried seemingly everything, but nobody had talked to them about correcting the cause of the problem and done the work necessary to be able to get him better.

He was also having severe debilitating back pain. In the low back as well you’re supposed to have a 40 degree curve. He only has 25.

What is showing in his x-ray film is very advanced arthritis. This is what’s called phase three. This takes at least 20 years to form, so over the last 20 years, his body had been breaking down structurally, functionally, neurologically, causing severe back pain and the other things he was experiencing.

He was taking multiple pain medications that was further damaging his health because of this back pain. And he didn’t think he could get better until he came to our office.

Proper Evaluation and Chiropractic Care Corrects Many Lifelong Health Issues

How did we help this man and correct the cause of his problems?

  • We did the proper evaluation.
  • We did the proper care over time here in the office and showed him exercises he could do at home.
    • Specific chiropractic adjustments.
    • Therapeutic exercises.
    • Neuro-muscular reeducation
    • Neural postural training
    • Strengthening stabilization of the spine and nervous system
    • We balanced everything that moves and supports the spine.

We were able to correct the cause of his problem and help his body heal itself naturally.

This was his x ray a few months later. You can see his spinal curve is coming back. There is better spacing in the upper part of the neck, his head is coming back over his shoulders. We have corrected the subluxation, removing the interference so his body can heal itself.

That’s the difference between New Life Chiropractic and other chiropractors!

Because of this, he got off all medications including high blood pressure medication, and experiences no more back pain, and no more headaches. He is able to exercise again, able to play with his kids again, able to live a full life.
