Laying the Foundation For Your Better Health
Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular 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'd 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/Pain Care
If you're in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you become pain free.. Depending on the severity of your problem, it's typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 1-4 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative/Strength Training Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent further or future injury. It's typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 3-6 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness/Preventative Care
Once your body has fully healed, it's important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
