There are three phases of care:
1. RELIEF CARE
Thumbs up to relief! Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require consistent visits for a period of time to allow the body to regenerate and adapt the the adjustments.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them – that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced. For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
2. CORRECTIVE CARE
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing.
3. WELLNESS CARE
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, that your nervous system is subluxation free; thus keeping your body in optimal condition. Depending on your activity level and lifestyle, this phase may include a monthly adjustment. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure your best health. When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you can look forward to engaging in more of the activities you love for many years to come.
