Phases of Care
Pain Management Phase of Care
Most people begin chiropractic care for unwanted symptoms. We understand life is too busy and your goal is to eliminate pain as quickly as possible and get back to what's important to you. This is why we focus your initial treatment on reducing your pain, by finding the cause of the issue and correcting it, or referring you out, if it is not chiropractic related. Visits can be frequent, depending on the severity and complexity.
This is the most important phase of care. When your aches and pains deminish, the objective is to strengthen and stabilize the spine for a more complete healing and to prevent the injury from reoccurring and relapsing. Visits are less frequent in this stage because your body is able to hold chiropractic adjustments longer.
Many of our patients enjoy the benefits of chiropractic care and choose to continue with preventative checkups. This saves you time and money by keeping minor problems from becoming more serious and requiring additional treatment. Our spines need adjustments and exercise just like our teeth need dental checkups and regularly brushing and flossing.
