Tonal Correction Vs. Traditional Chiropracrtic
Most Traditional Chiropractors focus on 3 specific goals: decreasing muscular spasm, increasing range of motion and reducing pain. This type of care falls under the category of symptom reduction/management and never truly addresses the underlying CAUSE of the patient’s problem.
At Precision Chiropractic, we focus on a unique approach known as Tonal Correction. Unlike traditional Chiropractic, Tonal Correction focuses on the tone/tension of the spinal cord/nervous system, specifically as it relates to the structure of the spine and its connective tissues (muscles, ligaments, etc).
To better understand this, consider a guitar string. A guitar string directly attaches to the very top and bottom of a guitar, and can only be tuned from these locations. Similarly, the spinal cord directly attaches to the very top and the very bottom of the spine, and the amount of tone, or tension, in it is primarily affected by these spinal regions.
When a guitar is out of tune, due to an improper amount of tension in the strings, the sound created is abnormal and undesirable. If the spinal cord and/or spinal nerves have the improper amount of tension or tone, this disrupts the ability of the brain and body to function normally, leading to many possible Secondary Conditions.
The goal of Tonal Correction is to address the underlying cause of abnormal tone and tension in the spinal cord and nerves, and to address specific structures of the spine. This abnormal shift in tone and structure is known as Tonal Shift.
Unlike most healthcare providers – whose focus is to decrease symptoms and restore you to where you were just before you sought help- the purpose of Tonal Correction is to address the underlying issue(s) so your brain and body are able to adapt and reorganize, allowing your body to function at its best.
