We are a Chiropractic office based in Eureka, MO that focuses on Structural Correction of the spine.
Our purpose is to provide a comprehensive solution to resolving problems related to structural abnormalities in the spine and nervous system, to allow your body to work at its highest capacity.
We are proud to serve patients from the greater St. Louis area.
Dr. Baylard focuses on Structural Correction of the spine by utilizing specific corrective adjustments, structural rehabilitation, spinal restoration, and complementary recommendations in an effort to correct a structural shift. What does that mean for you as the patient?
- Specific Adjustments- Not just random “craaacks!“
- Objective Measurements- Pre and Post measurements so you can see and feel the difference.
- Corrections that last- “you don’t always have to keep going to the chiropractor!” We will teach you how to protect your investment.
Structural Chiropractic vs Traditional Chiropractic
In order to understand the difference between a traditional chiropractic office and our practice, you first have to understand the goals of traditional chiropractic care.
The goals of traditional chiropractic are:
- Decreasing muscle spasm
- Increasing range of motion
- Temporarily reduce your pain
This is what most chiropractors offer in the way of care. We believe most of these doctors do a great job.
There are some chiropractors who continue their education through additional certifications and coursework, allowing them to focus on other areas of chiropractic. One of those areas is called Structural Correction.
A chiropractor who focuses on Structural Correction is looking to correct structural abnormalities in the spine.
Think of your spine as the foundation for a building. If your house was not sitting properly on its foundation, would you expect the floors to creak, the walls to crack, and windows to work smoothly or not so smoothly? Now you can spend time patching all the secondary effects from the shift in the foundation, but you would be doing so with the expectation that in a short time the problems will have to be…..?
….Repaired Again….and Again….
And suddenly instead of achieving a true correction, we’re relying on chiropractic like a band aid getting us from one day to the next! Eventually we become a pretty expensive Tylenol!
In the vast majority of patients that find a way to our office, the issue is a significant Structural Shift. These patients are often referred to us by medical doctors and even other chiropractors because of the uniqueness of what we do. The Structural Shifts are the underlying causes that often reveal themselves as “symptoms” – or what Structural Doctors refer to as Secondary Conditions. Structural Correction focuses exclusively on the correction of the underlying cause – Structural Shifts.
What is a Structural Shift
No one has 100% PERFECT structural alignment. However, no different than normal blood pressure, normal vision, and normal heart rate, there is a range of what is acceptable and unacceptable when it comes to Normal Structural Spinal Alignment.
The body uses secondary conditions as warning indicators of a potentially more serious condition. A Structural Shift is just such a condition that may be the cause of your health problems. Our office focuses on detecting and correcting these shifts so that the body can heal on its own and function the way it was designed to.
- Neck & Back Pain
- Knee & Hip Pain
- Muscular Spasm & Tension
- Cervicogenic Headaches
- Frozen shoulder
- Elbow pain
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Decreased Range of Motion
- Poor Posture
- Muscular Imbalance
- Digestive Problems
- Vision problems
- Hearing problems
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Muscular Spasm & Tension
- Ear infections
What Do I Need to Know Before My Examination?
After a consultation with the doctor, a perspective patient may elect to proceed to our Structural Chiropractic examination. As always, the decision is yours and there is never any pressure.
What to expect in our Structural Correction Examination:
- Digital Structural Photographs
- 3D Structural Analysis
- Digital Structural Radiographs
- aOS Analysis
- BioStructural Analysis
The Structural Chiropractic Examination is not only designed to detect Structural Shifts, but allows for a better understanding of “normal” and a complete understanding of the underlying cause of your condition. Before your examination, you will be scheduled for a Patient Recommendation Conference where we will review your examination findings. If a structural shift is found we will make a recommendation for a plan of care that is specifically designed to address your condition.
***Please be prepared to dress appropriately for the examination. It is required that you have athletic/gym shorts available, and women should also come with a sports bra for accurate structural assessment.”
Your Treatment Options
There are a wide variety of treatment options offered by both medical and alternative medicine practitioners. Most doctors are focused on pain and symptom relief (secondary conditions), and they do an excellent job. People often start with over the counter or prescription medication to block your pain receptors.
If that doesn’t work, then courses of physical therapy/physiotherapy may be used to strengthen muscular weakness, address spasm, or increase mobility and injection programs to temporarily reduce pain. In many cases when those other treatments don’t work out , more invasive procedures like surgery start to become an option.
All of these treatment programs are effective in the appropriate time and place and have different goals. Our goal at Maximum Chiropractic is to restore the structural integrity of your spine.
If during the consultation Dr. Baylard finds that Maximum Chiropractic isn’t right for you, he will make sure to find the best practitioner to help resolve your specific condition.
