Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre in the Beacon Hill Plaza on Guelph Line.I am also a canfitpro
certified Personal Training Specialist and an American Posture Institute Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist.
Today I am going to share another case history with you. Case histories are excellent learning opportunities.
I recently had a mother and son come in for a consultation.
They both had been going for chiropractic care for over 25 years and due to circumstances,they needed to find another chiropractor.In a situation like this, I always find out what their level of understanding is regarding chiropractic care and the posture system.
So, I asked them if they were familiar with the 4 posture quadrants, spinal misalignments, posture distortions, spinal degenerative arthritis etc. and they answered ‘no’ to most.
We then proceeded with a detailed posture scan which indicated that posture xrays were warranted.When we sat down to go over their posture xrays they were both shocked.
They were shocked at how much their posture systems had collapsed and the degree of spinal degenerative arthritis in their spines. Especially because they had been going for chiropractic care for years.
But it was for the most part pain-relief care only.
The takeaway from this case history is this … even though these patients did benefit to some degree from their previous chiropractic adjustments, there is a way to maximize these.
When you have a road map
or a specific treatment plan
designed to correct any posture distortions and you follow this up with regular chiropractic check-ups, you will get way more out of your chiropractic care.
Remember it is the chiropractors training and expertise that determines how often, when and where you need an adjustment.
And this will vary depending upon whether your chiropractor is a pain-relief (short-term benefits) chiropractor or a posture correction (long-term benefits) chiropractor.
