Laying the Foundation for Total Health
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 1-3 times per week for 1-3 weeks, depending on the condition or injury.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 2-4 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 to come in for periodic adjustments to help avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor once per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
