This model represents how we at EMC2 look at injury, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. Typically, an orthopedic diagnosis is given solely based on the presenting, painful tissue. Then, that symptomatic tissue is treated. But, to treat the true underlying reason for the pain, one must ask a few additional questions:
• What is causing the tissue to become pathological in the first place?
• What surrounding joints are contributing to the pathological tissue?
• Is the structure not moving enough (mobility issue)?
• Is it moving too much (stability issue)?
• Is our brain not coordinating our movement systems correctly (motor control issue)?
Our goal is to find and correct the underlying movement dysfunction that is actually creating the pathological tissue. If we can do this, we can not only get you better, but more importantly, keep you better.
Mobility is our base, because we as a society do not move frequently or well enough. This is where the majority of Chiropractors stop. Our goal here is reduce your pain and symptoms.
Stability forms the next layer. If we do not create proper stabilization around our new-found mobility, the brain will feel unsafe and will re-lock up those tissues. Our goal here is to restore proper function.
Motor Control is the final layer. This step integrates all the mobility and stability improvements into smooth and efficient movement patterns. Our goal here is to promote durability and longevity.
