Structure Dictates Function
We are bridging the gap between structure and function in regards to your health. What that means is that we focus first and foremost on the physical structure of your body. That is step one. The foundation. From then on, we can look deeper into fine-tuning the function of your body, but that must be our starting point.
When we talk about the structure, we are talking more specifically about the muscles and joints of your body. When they are lined up and moving well, your body and brain both function better. Here at Motus Chiropractic, we strive to be excellent at finding and fixing movement problems; thereby correcting the structure of your body. Motus is a Latin word that simply means motion. That name was chosen as the name of our clinic because science has recently shown how truly vital healthy bodily motion is for your brain as well as your overall health. When the structure of your body is sound and solid, then you begin to function better and heal appropriately. Structure dictates function from a neurological perspective; therefore, we fully address both when treating you.
You’ll notice that we use a lot of techniques here, however all of them have one primary goal in mind. That is to improve brain function which we know will lead to a higher quality of life for you; regardless of what you are facing. The most efficient way that we are able to impact brain health is through correcting joint motion in your body. Thinking back to the concept that structure dictates function, the muscles and joints in your body provide communication signals to your brain, and your brain is then able to react and adapt as needed. With that in mind, the exact opposite is also fine-tuning. When joints and tissues stop to move the way they are designed to, then your brain gets fewer signals and it is left in the dark, so to speak. That’s why our treatments will always start with correcting structure and movement problems first. That’s step one. From there, there are a million pathways we can go down if needed, but correcting the way your muscles and joints move during your daily life is our first priority.
"I was a hard sell to chiropractic, so it took me a while to understand how much it could do for me. Dr. Maass is very knowledgeable about the human body and really seems to care about helping me. He was very thorough in finding out exactly where my pain was located and he explained to me exactly how he could help me. When he adjusted me I felt almost immediate relief and it got even better the next couple of days. I keep going back and getting adjusted now because I've finally experienced a better quality of life! Thank you Dr. Maass!"
"I was dealing with sharp shooting pain in my lower back down into my left leg and into my toes that would make it very difficult to sit for very long. I now have zero symptoms of any kind. All of my concerns were addressed. Dr. Maass is the best chiropractor I've ever seen and the only chiropractor to help me see results. I am now living pain free!"
