What Is A Neurostructural Shift?

While no one is structurally perfect, there is a normal healthy range. In the same manner, we can understand what a fever is because we know what the normal temperature is, or what constitutes high blood pressure because we are aware of the normal range.

There are established norms everywhere we look, including gauges and warning indicators on the dashboard of your car…letting you know when things are abnormal.

At Barrhaven Family Chiropractic & Wellness Centre, we are looking for a significant 3-dimensional shift of the spine away from normal. If the head and neck shifts in three directions, it will cause the shoulders to twist, and the hips to shift forcing the entire spine out of alignment.

These shifts cause the muscles to spasm, the ligaments to deform, and disrupt the NERVES traveling down the spinal cord. In other words, the main communication system that connects your brain to your body can be disrupted.

The Primary Condition that we work with is called the NEUROSTRUCTURAL SHIFT, or commonly known as Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
