Laying the Foundation
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. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .(read more)
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, our first objective is alleviating those feelings. It is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for about 4-12 weeks. Much depends on the severity of your problem.
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 care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months. Much depends on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Now that your body has healed, we will continue to work together to maintain your new found health! It is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid any future misalignment. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
