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 and we do this by looking for and correcting the issue causing your pain. Depending on the severity of your issue/ problem, the doctor will review with you a care plan. As each patient is different, we look at your issue and determine what care plan is best for you.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. Your care plan will depend on your overall health and the severity of your problem/issue. The doctor will review your Corrective/Restorative Care Plan with you.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
To maintain wellness, we recommend periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future and to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. Regular visits to the dentist ensures healthy teeth and gums; chiropractic care helps your body.
