vs. Conventional Chiropractic
Conventional Chiropractors are great at decreasing muscle spasms, increasing range of motion and temporarily reducing pain. This is how most chiropractors practice and they do a fantastic job. However, this type of treatment is considered symptom relief/management, or as we call it "Band-Aid® care".
At Apex Chiropractic we focus on Neurospinal Optimization. As we all know, our body's functions are controlled by the nervous system, and the nervous system is protected by the bony segments of the spine. If a bone in the spine moves out of place (Neurospinal Dysfunction) it may cause interference in the nervous system as well as serve as a starting point for degeneration and arthritis within the spine. Through a comprehensive Neurospinal examination we locate dysfunction within the spine and address it with specific Corrective Adjustments.
Get Back To Normal
Rather than focus on "Band-Aid® care", at Apex Chiropractic we aim to help your spine regain a normal structure.
Neurospinal Optimization is not for everyone. If you are looking for a long term solution rather than "Band-Aid® care" or short term symptom relief, our office may be for you. Our extensive Neurospinal examination procedures will help us get a better picture of IF we can help you, HOW LONG it may take, and WHAT we can do to improve your overall health. The results that we achieve in our office are ones that you can not only FEEL, but SEE through our reexamination procedures.
Once your structure is back to normal, we strive to give you the tools to maintain your progress so your secondary conditions do not return.
What Is Neurospinal Dysfunction
When it comes to structure, no one is absolutely perfect. But, like all other aspects of our health there is a normal range. If I were to ask you what a normal blood pressure is you might say 120/80. Most people don't know
exactly what that means, but they understand that
value is "normal". There are many other "normal"
values in healthcare. For example, blood sugar, body
mass and heart rate all have healthy ranges. That
being said, there will always be variations based on
ones age or health situation.
At Apex Chiropractic we are looking for a multi-
dimensional shift of the spine away from normal.
If the spine is shifted in one area, another area will
compensate and therefore cause the entire spine to
move out of proper alignment. These shifts can cause
muscles to spasm, ligaments to deform and most
importantly, they can influence the nervous system. In short, the communication system
from your brain to the rest of the body can be
The primary focus of Apex Chiropractic is to locate
and correct Neurospinal Dysfunction though thorough
structural evaluation and specific corrective adjustments.
What are Secondary Conditions?
Secondary Conditions, or what most people call "symptoms" are your body's warning system. They are indicators of a more serious underlying condition. Some of the Secondary Conditions that arise from a Neuro-Spinal Dysfunction include:
Neck & Back Pain
Sciatica & Hip Pain
Numbness & Tingling
Muscular Spasm & Tension
Headaches (Including Migraine)
Pinched Nerve (N.I.S.)
Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Pain
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Joint Disease
Decreased Range of Motion
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What To Expect During An Exam
After completing your consultation with the doctor, you will be invited to proceed with our Neurospinal examination. The examination may also be scheduled for a later time if you so choose. As always, the decision is yours and there will never be any gimmicks or high pressure sales pitches. The Neurospinal examination is comprehensive, which means you should safely plan on allotting no less than 45 minutes of your time. This is a thorough, time intensive examination process completed by a doctor, not a quick assessment by an assistant. Dr. Aaron or Dr. Virginia will complete each aspect of the examination to determine the nature of your Neuro-Spinal Disfunction. The exam will include:
What to expect in our Examination:
Complete Autonomic Activity Assessment
3D Structural Analysis
Orthopedic/Neurological testing as needed.
The Structural examination is not only designed to detect Neuro-Spinal Dysfunction, but allows for a better understanding of “normal" and a complete understanding of the underlying cause of your condition. After your examination, you will be scheduled for a conference where we will explain our findings, how we can help you and how things work if you should decide to start care with our practice.
During the Nervous System Scan the back must be exposed. We will provide a rear-opening gown to be utilized at that time.
How Do I Get Started
If you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors, please call (701) 852-5290 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a consultation. Remember, this is a conversation, not a commitment to an examination or care. You'll be given the opportunity to sit down with a doctor so they can learn more about your condition. Additionally, they will explain all of the details about the office. You will be given the opportunity to undergo a complete Neuro-Spinal Chiropractic Examination should you decide that our process makes sense. The doctor will review all of the details of your case, explain the findings, and cover your options for care.
