What to Expect
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 . . .

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 daily to 3 times per week for up to 4 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, joints, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely and in correct alignment, thereby strengthening the spine to its pre injury health. It is typical to need care 3 times per week diminishing in frequency with continued improvement of the spinal structures, for up to 6months o care, 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 maintain that level of health, that we worked so hard to achieve, by receiving periodic spinal adjustments to correct any abnormal changes that may have occurred from the stresses of normal daily life. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
