What Are Secondary Conditions?


Fortunately, like your car, life gives us warning signals so that we know when there is a problem. Just look at your dashboard in your car and you'll see a variety of warning indicators that let you know when things aren't right (aka "normal").

In the human body, our warning indicators are a number of secondary conditions. As you are probably aware, a secondary condition suggests the presence of a more serious primary condition - typically the underlying cause of your symptoms. Here are a few of the secondary conditions that may require your attention:
  • Neck & Back Pain
  • Sciatica & Hip Pain
  • Compensatory Scoliosis
  • Loss Of The Natural Curves Of The Spine
  • Numbness & Tingling
  • Muscular Spasm & Tension
  • Headaches (Variety including Migraines)
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Herniated Disc
  • Canal Stenosis
  • Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Pain
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Decrease Ranges of Motion
  • Poor Posture
  • Granny Hump (Dowager's)
  • Muscular Imbalance
  • Dizziness/Vertigo
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
"Conventional" chiropractors and other health care professionals focus on treating these secondary conditions, just like they are taught to. This is a very effective way to feel well, but unfortunately the PRIMARY CONDITION is not corrected or just plain-old ignored. 

Not many doctors focus on correcting the PRIMARY structural abnormality as a means to resolve the nagging SECONDARY condition/symptom. This is what makes Corrective Chiropractic different...we focus on structural correction of the spine.
