One of the most common questions we get is, “Why did you choose the name Keystone Chiropractic?”
Our focus is on an area of Chiropractic called NeuroStructural Correction, and we view the body as an amazing feat of engineering. Every part has a specific function and proper place. When everything is in the right place at the right time, the body performs optimally. When there is an abnormality within the structure of the body, secondary problems are likely to occur.
At Keystone Chiropractic, it is our primary job to correct and maintain the structural foundation of the entire body; the spine.
An arch is one of the strongest and most stable structures in architecture. Each stone supports the load while evenly transferring it to the foundation. As you can see in the image above, the two sides coming together rely on the keystone (in red) to connect and maintain proper structure. What would you expect if the keystone were shifted slightly to the left or right? Would there be an increased load on on side? Could that lead to increased wear, instability, or perhaps cracked stones?
If your health were an arch, the stones would be things such as proper diet, exercise, and rest. The keystone holding everything together would be proper structural alignment of your spine and an optimally functioning nervous system.
While eating right, getting proper sleep, and exercising are certainly necessary, as are all of the stones of an arch, normal spinal structure and a properly functioning nervous system are the keystone which keep everything locked in place. Without normal structure, you can expect secondary problems to occur.
At Keystone Chiropractic we focus on Neuro-Structural Correction; locating structural shifts within your spine, restoring them to normal using specific adjustments, allowing your nervous system and body to function at their best.
