Laying the Foundation for Total Health
In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care, and Physical therapy is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. Chiropractic and Physical therapy care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . .
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need a personalized tailored care plan.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative care is to help bring your body back to functionality and improve your daily life .
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic checkups to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of care only requires a quick visit and, is based on your lifestyle and goals.
