What are Secondary Conditions?

At first, minor abnormal shits of areas of the spine or the fascial lines (kinetic chain) are nothing to worry about. No one has absolutely 100% perfect alignment/balance. However, no different than normal body temperature, normal blood pressure, and normal heart rate, there is a range of what’s acceptable and what’s unacceptable.

If your kinetic chain is strained outside of what is considered normal, then you will experience one or more of what we refer to as secondary conditions. The reason we call these symptoms “secondary conditions” is because they are a result of, as you might have guessed, a primary condition (underlying cause). 

Some of these secondary conditions include:

  • Abnormal Gait

  • ADD/ADHD
