Building the foundation
Chiropractic Care is like building a house - certain things must be done in a certain order for the house (your body) to stand solid. Your body must go through a well designed plan of care so that it can repair itself correctly and fully. There are three basic phases of chiropractic care. . .
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain (back pain, neck pain, auto accident) when you first come to see us, our main mission will be to help you feel better. Depending on how severe your problem is, it is normal to need care 2-3 times per week for the first 1 - 3 months.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During this phase, tissues and muscles are able to heal more completely. This helps prevent injury. You can expect to need 1-2 times a week for 6-24 months, depending on the severity of your problem and your overall health.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has healed, it is imperative that you come in for scheduled adjustments to avoid future problems. Most patients are able to obtain a care plan that only requires a brief visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your general health, goals and lifestyle.
