At Foundation Chiropractic, we specialize in Principled and Neurologically Based Chiropractic Care.  Chiropractic is an all-natural form of healthcare that is based on the correction of bone misalignments in your spine. These misalignments are often the cause of deeper underlying issues such as nerve and muscle pain, and in more serious cases, cell, organ and tissue dysfunction.

Since the central nervous system is the master control system of the body, it’s especially important to maintain its health. When the spine misaligns, pressure on the spinal cord and nerves can occur. This is called a vertebral subluxation complex. Chiropractic actively works to correct subluxations by thoroughly analyzing and gently adjusting the spine. The practice enables proper central nervous system functionality and natural healing throughout the body.

What Is Principled Chiropractic Care? 

The nervous system controls and coordinates every function of the human body. The Principle purpose of chiropractic is to remove nerve interference from the spine to allow for optimal nervous system function. This is when optimal health can be achieved. Our practice operates off of that principle.

Symptom-alleviating chiropractic care can effectively provide temporary relief, but true actual Principled Correction can provide you with life-long benefits. The alternative is to merely correct minor problems while ignoring the underlying major cause(s).

Principled Chiropractic Care works against this “sick care” model. Instead of waiting until pain has begun, Drs. Matthew and Taylor Filtz recommend regular visits to ensure that you maintain your spinal health for years to come. After all, you wouldn’t wait until you had a cavity to start brushing your teeth! The same applies for your spinal health. You should never have to wait for injury or pain before making your first visit to Foundation Chiropractic.

At Foundation Chiropractic, we specialize in principled and neurologically based chiropractic care.

How Principled Chiropractic Care Models Work 

Although many chiropractors specialize in providing temporary relief, the practice of chiropractic care was never intended to work that way. From its inception, over 110 years ago, Chiropractic Care was designed to be a principled form of healthcare. The objective of Principled Chiropractic is to locate and identify the underlying cause(s) of one’s health concerns and correct them at their source.

This targeted form of care alleviates underlying conditions, rather than simply correcting their outward symptoms. Doing otherwise would be like treating a heart attack by trying to correct pain or numbness in the arms. Ignoring or misinterpreting underlying warning signs in chiropractic care only leads to further outward symptoms that distract from the major spinal or nervous system issue at hand. Even worse, our body’s natural ability to adapt to problematic conditions can lead to more severe side effects over time.

An example of such a commonly occurring problem is when one injures the small vertebral bones at the base of his or her neck through repetitive stress, friction or traumatic incidents like slip-and-falls. The resulting change in head posture can cause one’s ribcage to bend or shift, along with muscle groups in the lower spine and pelvis, reducing pressure on the spinal nerves. This revised posture is a relative improvement, but the imbalanced pressures remains on the vertebral discs and causes them to gradually and progressively wear out.

At Foundation Chiropractic we specialize in detecting, analyzing, and correcting vertebral subluxation at its source to provide true relief and peak nervous system performance. Through advanced techniques and technology, we make it our primary goal to learn how to effectively maintain health for your spine and nervous system to create a happier, healthier life.
