Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. One is always free to choose what type of care one needs based on health goals, finances, time, etc. We respect individual goals are happy to provide the level of care that best suits the individual. In general, there are three phases of chiropractic care . . .Button Text
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better for the least amount of time and money. Depending on the severity and longevity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 2-6 weeks. However, this type of care may only be a “patch” as opposed to a “fix”.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal, stabilize and retrain more completely, thereby helping prevent future injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 2-6 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. This is more of a long term “fix” approach to correcting the health issues.
Phase 3: Wellness Care & Prevention
Once your body has fully healed, it is beneficial to preserve the progress one has made by returning for periodic adjustments which can help to avoid and minimize future problems. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month or quarter, based on your lifestyle and goals.Button Text
