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: Crisis Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. After performing an evaluation, we will recommend a course of care to take care of your immediate needs.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
Your body is designed to heal on its own. However, it is during the corrective care phase that treatment will help the body heal better, with correct function and less problems in the future. Failure to assist the body's ability to repair will likely lead to improper healing.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your injuries has fully healed and returned to normal, it is important to work on your health. Many patients confuse being injury-free with being healthy. But some patients were not really healthy before their injuries existed. By allowing us to concentrate our care to health instead of injury repair, we can assist you to getting the life back that you deserve.
