The specialization of Rhino Chiropractic is Neurologically-based Chiropractic Corrective Care. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, holistic and all-natural healthcare approach that looks at a person’s well-being in terms of their entire body rather than just the area where symptoms manifest. It is the largest, drugless healing profession on the planet. Your nervous system controls and coordinates every cell, tissue, organ and muscle in your body. It is housed in your brain and spinal cord. Misalignments in the bony spine, surrounding the spinal cord, can affect nervous system function and performance, thereby greatly reducing your quality of life and potentially causing or contributing to a multitude of health issues.
Whole Body Health
Our focus is to evaluate, analyze, detect and correct these pressures, subluxations and misalignments of the spine to address the root underlying causes of dysfunction. That can range from the nerves and muscles to organs, tissues and even cellular problems. Chiropractic works to actively correct these issues by performing complete and thorough neurological analyses and evaluations to determine when and where to adjust the spine, and how often! This, in turn will restore the incredible natural healing capabilities of the human body.
What Is Principled Chiropractic?
While all chiropractic care focuses on healing the body naturally through caring for the nervous system through the cranio-spino-meningeal functional unit (skull, spine and pelvis), Principled Chiropractic is different in that it operates solely on a model designed to optimize, progress, maintain and preserve lifelong health. It doesn’t just seek to correct the current condition and symptoms, but to enhance healing throughout your entire life.
While most chiropractic methods provide effective temporary relief, true principled correction has lifelong benefits, correcting underlying major causes of ailments rather than simply addressing minor surface problems. Our society functions too much on a “sick care” model, which treats symptoms after they arise; Dr. Ryan Mulcahy at Rhino Chiropractic in Victor recommends regular progressive and preventative care to maintain spinal and nervous system health for years.
Would you wait until your engine freezes up before changing your oil? Of course you wouldn’t. Even more appropriate, would you wait until you’ve got a gum infection before you start brushing your teeth? The same applies to the health of your spine and nervous system. Never wait for pain or injury—practice routine maintenance on your body instead!
How the Model Works
Chiropractic care was never designed to work on the sick care model by simply addressing current symptoms. This is unfortunate because principled care was the goal of chiropractic over 100 years ago when it was first introduced and developed.
Principled care works to identify and correct the underlying causes of healthcare concerns, to correct them at the source and allow the body to heal and recover naturally, through time and repetition. A common finding in many diseases and ailments is the involvement of the nervous system. This is why after 120 years of Chiropractic being in existence, the results have far surpassed the common aches and pains. It targets these base conditions rather than focusing on the symptoms they cause. Just as a doctor wouldn’t treat a heart attack through addressing numbness in the arm, a chiropractor shouldn’t target a nervous system disorder by easing pain solely in the leg.
For example, when a person suffers trauma to the bones at the base of their neck, say from a slip and fall, an accident or a sports injury, it can result in posture change which can, in turn, cause the ribcage to shift along with spinal and pelvic muscle groups. The result over time, with the addition of daily repetitive big and little traumas we endure through common activities of daily living, as that pressure on the discs, joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons in the back wear down and cause major trauma to the delicate and sensitive nerves they protect. A principled care, Victor chiropractor will “correct” the posture change in the upper neck rather than simply “treating” the resulting pain in the pelvis.
