Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why do people seek chiropractic care?
People looking for natural forms of healing often choose chiropractic over other types of complementary health care. Chiropractic is the largest healthcare field after medicine and dentistry, and years of rigorous scientific research has proven chiropractic’s effectiveness for a wide variety of conditions, from low back pain, neck pain and headaches to ear infections and fibromyalgia.
2. How does this kind of treatment work?
Chiropractic aims to aid the human body’s own innate intelligence, which seeks balance, or homeostasis, among systems in the body. Chiropractic also emphasizes that proper structure is necessary for proper function and holds that the nervous system is the primary coordinator of function throughout the body.
3. How is Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) different from other chiropractic approaches?
BGI is different in many ways. Here are a few: BGI presents a new paradigm in chiropractic by integrating contemporary, nonlinear science with the vitalistic philosophy of chiropractic, bringing an understanding of mastery to the art of chiropractic. BGI presents a geometric model of the body, incorporating concepts of tensegrity (how tension and compression can be balanced and distributed throughout your body), biodynamics, and force dynamics, that allow the practitioner to work with the body as an integrated whole, refining the adjustment, and increasing the overall effectiveness.
4. Is BGI a new technique?
No. BGI empowers the practitioner with an understanding of the innate geometry of the body, the biodynamics of how the body moves and distorts as an integrated whole, and the force dynamics of both the osseous and soft tissue type adjustments. By learning these concepts, it is easier to master the chiropractic adjustment with ease and finesse. These tools assist the chiropractor in discerning the optimal positioning, force application, timing, line of correction, and location of the adjustment — through hands-on palpation without the necessity of instrumentation.
