Here at Excel Chiropractic, we focus on correcting your Primary Condition. See below the difference between Primary and Secondary Conditions and how we at Excel do things differently than traditional chiropractic offices.

Secondary Conditions

A person usually seeks chiropractic care due to Secondary Conditions. These conditions encompass anything from a runny nose to numbness and tingling in the feet. If you ask someone experiencing these conditions, why they are seeking chiropractic care, he or she might say, “I have been experiencing numbness and tingling in my legs and feet for the past 18 months.” Believe it or not, these conditions are not the underlying problem!

Secondary Conditions are merely what a person can experience due to a Primary Condition. This is what traditional chiropractors are interested in correcting each visit, but it only leads to you returning the next week with the exact same problem.

Primary Conditions

Primary Conditions are the root cause of the Secondary Conditions. This is what we aim to correct at Excel Chiropractic. Most Secondary Conditions are caused by Vertebral Subluxations, or misalignments in the spine causing pressure on the nerves that go to specific areas of the body. The location of your Secondary Conditions is directly related to where in the spine the Vertebral Subluxations are found.

At Excel Chiropractic, we aim to correct improper structure in the spine because improper structure leads to improper function.

If Vertebral Subluxations are present in the spine, improper structure is present as well. This often leads to a number of Secondary Conditions that will only be corrected or reduced when proper structure is restored.
