Neurostructural Chiropractic Care

Imagine that your spine is similar to the foundation of a house. If the foundation shifts, you start to see secondary conditions, like cracks, causing issues elsewhere like windows and doors getting jammed. The quick fix is spraying lubricant on the window and door frames or caulking the cracks–but the problem will keep coming back.

In order to fix the problem, it is always better to fix the cause–in this case by repairing the foundation.

When people are dealing with problems like neck pain or back pain, there are a lot of ways to get temporary relief like medication, home massagers, and stretches. Most professionals focus on symptom relief, i.e. getting people out of pain.

At Marketplace Chiropractic our focus is different. We provide the best in neurostructural correction, including specific chiropractic corrections to the spine using specialized chiropractic techniques, instruments, and top of the line adjusting tables.

Specific Neurostructural Corrective Techniques

By using specific neurostructural corrective techniques, we release spinal fixations, restoring normal mobility to spinal joints. As a result, secondary conditions like pain, stiffness, and numbness go away and stay away. When the body is not distracted by underlying conditions, it can focus on optimizing health.


People deal with different daily physical, mental, and chemical stresses. Physically demanding jobs, long hours at a desk, work deadlines, family stress, and eating processed food all impact your body. The body is designed to work within a normal range-think about your heart rate or blood pressure. At times, cumulative stresses on the body can become too much and push the body beyond its normal range. When it comes to your spine and nervous system, this results in neurostructural dysfunction. If enough time passes, neurostructural dysfunction causes muscle imbalance and ligament instability. It is these underlying issues that cause the symptoms you feel that brought you to our practice. Examples of secondary conditions include:

  • Arm and leg pain
  • asymmetry
  • arthritis
  • bed wetting
  • bone spurs
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • decreased range of motion
  • degenerative disc disease and joint disease
  • digestive conditions
  • disc herniation
  • dizziness
  • ear infections
  • fatigue

  • fibromyalgia
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • headaches
  • hearing difficulties
  • hip and joint pain
  • infantile colic
  • low back pain
  • mid-back pain
  • migraines
  • muscular spasm
  • muscle tension
  • neck pain
  • numbness
  • pinched nerves

  • posture problems
  • rotator cuff injuries
  • pregnancy issues
  • sciatica
  • shoulder pain
  • spinal decay
  • sleeping problems
  • tendinitis
  • tennis elbow
  • thoracic outlet syndrome
  • TMJ syndrome
  • torticollis
  • upper back pain
  • wrist pain


We uncover the root cause of dysfunction with a neurostructural examination.

The underlying primary condition that often causes the secondary conditions that we feel in our bodies is neurostructural dysfunction. This is when spinal bones can become “locked”, and eventually, a person may feel pain in the area, numbness and tingling in the extremities, and/or surrounding muscles spasms resulting in secondary conditions like pain and stiffness.

At Marketplace Chiropractic we perform a thorough neurostructural examination to identify sites of neurostructural dysfunction. We use different indicators to assess and objectively measure deviations from normal so we can correct them, moving you back to a state of health.

The indicators used during a neurostructural examination include:

  • Thermography and SEMG, or computerized spinal scans, provide neurological and muscular activity readings
  • Structural analysis allows us to identify structural shifts like a rotated shoulder or elevated pelvis
  • Precision inclinometry measures spinal mobility, localizing sites of muscle tension and spinal fixation
  • Palpation determines sites of spinal fixation and muscle tension
  • Orthopedic and neurological testing provides wide ranging information to help identify specific mechanisms of underlying conditions
  • State-of the-art digital x-ray obtains specific neurostructural radiographs (x-rays)
