Laying the foundation
We believe in correcting the cause of your pain not just treating the symptom. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 2-4 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need monthly maintenence treatments depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor a few times per year, based on your lifestyle and goals.
*We advise following the 3 phases of care yet our policy is to help patients out of pain and then instruct them in prevention methods. It is the patients decision on the amount of corection they would like to achieve.
