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 Phase
If you are in pain when you come into our clinic, the first objective is to discover the cause of the problem and help you start the process of recovery. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4 - 6 weeks.
Phase 2: Rehabilitative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent further injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 1-3 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important and recommended to come in for periodic check-ups to avoid problems in the future and continue promoting better health. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-2 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
