What Are Secondary Conditions?

At first, minor abnormal shifts of areas of the spine are nothing to worry about. No one has ABSOLUTELY 100% PERFECT alignment. However, there is a range of what is acceptable and what is not, just like those found for normal body temperature, normal weight, or normal blood pressure.

If your structural shifts are outside of what is considered to be normal, then you will experience one or more of what we refer to as SECONDARY CONDITIONS. The reason we call them secondary conditions is that they are a direct result of structural shifts. Some of the more common secondary conditions are as follows:

  • Arm Pain
  • Asymmetry
  • Bone Spurs
  • Carpal Tunnel (Wrist)
  • Canal Stenosis
  • Decreased Motion
  • Degenerated Joints
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Disc Herniations
  • Dizziness (Vertigo)
  • Dowager’s Hump
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Headaches
  • Hearing Issues
  • Itchiness
  • Low Back Pain
  • Mid Back Pain
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Muscle Tension
  • Muscular Imbalance
  • Neck Pain
  • Numbness/Tingling
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Poor Posture
  • Rotator Cuff Issues
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Sinus Conditions
  • Spinal Decay
  • Strength Issues
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Thoracic Outlet
  • TMJ Issues
  • Upper Back Pain
  • Vision Issues

When a structural shift occurs and the head shifts forward beyond its center of balance, it puts continuous abnormal strain on all of the associated nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, and bones. This happens primarily in the upper portion of the spine, but also down into the mid and lower regions of the torso. When there is abnormal stress on the body, it first gives warning signs (signs and/or symptoms), and if symptoms persist untreated, more serious conditions start to develop, such as arthritis.

There are four objective tests that offer clear indicattions of any structural shifts, and are not related to age or genetics. They are:

  1. Digital Structural Radiographs
  2. Digital Structural Analysis
  3. Structural Mechanical Symmetrical Analysis
  4. Structural Comparative Strength Analysis
