As our photographic reach grows through Colorado and beyond, we often receive information from our
clients indicating that they or one of their family members are uncomfortable with their posture or have
chronic pain and dysfunction that make it hard to give their best smile during our photo shoot.
Obviously, your photo event is supposed to be a time that you and your family or business remember for years to come but self-consciousness and pain and dysfunction can hold you back from having the best
experience. Fortunately, the internal system that controls pain, posture and body function can easily be
influenced using a non-traditional treatment for a long-term change. That system is called your CNS or
Central Nervous System. In this article we are going to highlight one of our amazing community
businesses that affects this system at a high level using a specific and gentle touch. If you are looking for
answers to your health concerns from a chiropractor Colorado Springs, read on about how Balance
Chiropractic might be a big help to you for your upcoming photo shoot!
What is the Difference Between Traditional and Non-Traditional Chiropractic in Colorado Springs?
Traditional chiropractors will perform a series of adjustments that include popping, twisting, and cradling.
According to Dr. Max Pohl at Balance Chiropractic, “Most traditional chiropractors in Colorado Springs do a great job at their goals of short-term pain relief, increasing range of motion, and reducing muscle spasms. They usually perform an analysis associated with areas of complaints, palpation of tight muscles and stiff or stuck joints.” Dr. Max goes on to explain that for those looking for a more long-term solution postural and chronic issues such as vertigo, migraines, pinched nerves, and fibromyalgia, Balance Chiropractic offers a completely different analysis for completely different results!
What Does Balance Chiropractic Do Differently Than My Chiropractor?
Balance Chiropractic performs a unique process called Foundational Correction using the NUCCA
method. In a nutshell, this method is aimed to optimize your brain body connection gently and precisely
without popping, twisting or cracking your spine. Our doctors utilize a special form of imaging called
CBCT that creates a 3-dimensional view of the upper neck which allows for minimizing guess work
regarding your unique correction. Rather than adjusting the spine to get a popping or cracking release,
Balance Chiropractic performs its series of objective measurements to first make sure you are a good
candidate and throughout your correctional process to make sure not only do you receive proper posture, and a reduction of pain, but the correction of your once out of normal measurements.
How Do I Know this Colorado Springs Chiropractor Can Help Me?
Dr. Max, Ernesto, and Matthew proudly state that this form of chiropractic isn’t a good fit for everyone,
however if your objective measurements register out of normal limits, the results can be life changing.
From my years of actively helping people make life changing memories through photography, stories of
upper neck and head injuries stand out amongst the rest as the most dangerous. As we all know your
brain controls everything and for the communication to happen between the brain and body all signals
must go through your upper neck which is a highly susceptible area for injury. The centers within your
upper neck happen to control things such as posture, breathing, balance, coordination, digestion, along
with blood to and from the brain. When your head or neck receives an insult or injury, it can either
immediately or eventually create less than optimal communication between your brain and your body.
Think of trying to work on your computer without it being plugged into the electrical outlet of the wall – how well is that going to work? In your body, if you’ve sustained even a small head or neck injury, over time it can slowly start to unplug the brain-body connection and eventually lead to symptoms (aka Secondary Conditions as Dr. Max calls them) such as chronic pain, postural imbalances, migraines, back pain, neck pain, pinched nerves, and fibromyalgia. While working with so many people it is abundantly clear that many are sick of the roller coaster ride associated with traditional chiropractic treatments and the possible heavy usage of medications just to get by. Because of the long-term corrections that Balance Chiropractic offers, I know that many people are receiving long term results without highs and lows of constantly needing to be adjusted by going through the specialized process laid forth by the doctors at Balance Chiropractic.
What is it Like to Work with Balance Chiropractic?
Getting to the bottom of your long-standing health concerns happens to be easy! Your doctor will start by collecting a complete health history so they can rapidly understand your injuries, your problems and the goals you have with Foundational Correction. If your complimentary consultation leads the doctor to
believe you are a good candidate, a comprehensive foundational examination will take place that includes
a series of objective measurements such as a 3-dimensional CBCT scan, neurological stress scans,
muscular activity scans and a posture analysis. After your examination an in-depth chiropractic report of
findings will take place by comparing normal measurements to your measurements. After learning about
your objective measurements compared to normal, you will learn about your customized plan of care
along with your first correction and follow up imaging to make sure you are on the right track for
