What to Expect
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 try to put up walls before a solid foundation is laid, the walls will be weak and eventually collapse. If you try to put on a roof before the walls are ready, you'll 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 fully and correctly repair. 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 2 to 3 times per week for 4 to 12 weeks.
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 4 to 8 times per month for 6 to 12 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1 to 4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals. Our overall goal is to improve the quality of your life
