Laying the Foundation for Total Health
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:
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Chiropractic Adjustments, muscle therapy and beginning rehab of the spine is generally a part of the patients treatment plan
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. Chiropractic care, along with muscle therapy, exercises and home care program are usually prescribed in this portion of care.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has healed to the best of its ability, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future.
* Please keep in mind that no two patients are exactly the same, therefore, treatment plans, frequency of visits, types of care prescribed are unique to what each patient needs.
