The specialization of Key Potential Chiropractic is Neurologically-based Principled Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic is a non-invasive, holistic and all-natural healthcare approach that looks at a person’s well-being in terms of their entire body rather than just the area where symptoms manifest. Your nervous system controls and coordinates all of the cells, tissues and muscles in your body. The nervous system is centered in your spinal cord, and misalignments in the spine can affect the nervous system’s performance, greatly reducing your quality of life and potentially causing numerous health issues.

Whole Body Health

Our focus is to diagnose, address and correct these pressures, subluxations and misalignments of the spine to address underlying issues of dysfunction ranging from the nerves and muscles to organs, tissues and even cellular problems. Chiropractic works to actively correct these issues by conducting complete and thorough analysis and adjustments of the spine, to restore the incredible natural healing abilities of the human body.

What is Principled Chiropractic?

While all chiropractic focuses on healing the body through the spine, principled chiropractic is different in that it operates solely on a model designed to maintain and preserve optimal lifelong health. Principled chiropractic doesn’t just seek to correct the current condition and symptoms, but to enhance the healing potential of the human body throughout a lifetime.

While most chiropractic methods provide effective temporary relief, true principled correction has lifelong benefits, correcting underlying major causes of ailments rather than simply addressing minor surface problems. Our society functions too much on a “sick care” model, which treats symptoms after they arise; Dr. Kelsey Pettitt at Key Potential Chiropractic in Waukee recommends regular preventative care to maintain spinal health for years.

Would you wait until your engine freezes up before changing your oil? Of course you wouldn’t. Even more appropriate, would you wait until you’ve got a gum infection before you start brushing your teeth? The same applies to the health of your spine. Never wait for pain or injury—practice routine maintenance on your body instead!

How the Model Works

Chiropractic care was never designed to work on the sick care model by simply addressing current symptoms. This is unfortunate because principled care was the goal of chiropractic over 100 years ago when it was first introduced and developed.

Principled care works to identify the underlying causes of health concerns and correct them at the source. Principled care targets these base conditions rather than focusing on the symptoms they cause.

Through principled care, Dr. Kelsey Pettitt will look to correct the posture change in the upper neck rather than addressing the resulting pain in the pelvis.
