What is a Structural/ Foundational Shift

In healthcare there are established normal values for many things. There's a standard for normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, and normal vision. It doesn't mean that we expect everyone to have a PERFECT measure but there are healthy ranges for people depending on their age and situation.

Could your problems be the result of a Structural/ Foundational Shift?

At Platinum Chiropractic, we are looking for a significant structural shift away from normal that creates nerve obstruction and affects your Neuro-Spinal function. These shifts may initially cause muscle spasms because your foundation (the spine) loses its stability and strength. Left uncorrected, the ligaments eventually deform and will eventually obstruct the NERVES traveling down the spinal cord.


This entire process is called spinal degeneration or spinal arthritis and is the direct result of the everyday wear and tear on our body. It is similar to having one under-inflated tire on your car. At first it is not a big deal but over time if you don't fix or inflate it the axle wears our faster than it should the gradual breakdown process is underway.
