What to Expect

Laying the Foundation for Total Health

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: 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 two to three times per week for four to 12  weeks. 

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 four to eight times per month for six to 24 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 avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only  requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month,  based on your lifestyle and goals.
