Chiropractic is about more than alignment.
It is about creating and maintaining the vital connection in your body that allows all your systems to work in cohesive collaboration.
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: Pain Relief
Most people don't seek a doctor because they are in pain. They seek a doctor because their problem is affecting their quality of life and preventing them from doing the things they both need to do and want to do on a daily basis. How often you see the doctor will be determined based on your particular problem.
Phase 2: Corrective/Mobility Improvement
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. How long this phase takes will be determined by your overall health goals and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to maintain your mobility. This will allow you to do the things in life that you need to accomplish on a daily basis and avoid problems in the future.
