Foundational Correction™ vs. Traditional Chiropractic


To understand what we do, we first must be clear on what we don’t do. A conventional chiropractor’s goal is to:

  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce muscular spasm
  • Relieve or reduce pain

The majority of chiropractors take the traditional approach and do a great job at it. However, this type of care falls under symptom relief or symptom management, otherwise known as “band-aid” care.


At Foundation Chiropractic, we utilize state-of-the-art equipment to determine the presence of a Foundational Shift of the spine, which is typically the underlying cause of a variety of secondary conditions (symptoms) that you may be experiencing. Our doctor is 1 of 300 in the country trained and proficient in Foundational Correction using the Upper Cervical Chiropractic Orthospinology procedure.

What does that mean for you as the patient?

  • If a Foundational Shift is detected, our Foundational Chiropractor will create an individually tailored and calculated correction plan to restore your spinal alignment to a normal range.
  • Low-force Foundational Correction – no popping, twisting, cracking.
  • Long term correction –our goal is for the patient to maintain the correction, rather than need to be adjusted repeatedly. SEE AND FEEL the difference.

To further understand the nature of a Foundational Shift, consider that if a house has a poor foundation, you may find it leads to cracks in the walls, windows that do not close correctly, and floorboards that creak.

One may choose to continuously address these individual issues (symptoms) by filling in the cracks, lubricating the windows, and hammering another nail in the floor. However, the reality is that these individual issues will likely continue recurring until the underlying cause (foundation) is corrected.
