Phases of Chiropractic Care
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:
1. OMG! I’m in pain! Help Me!
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. This is the relief phase. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care for Mild 2-3 weeks, Moderate 3-6 weeks and Severe 4-10 weeks.
A basic rule of thumb is that the earlier you seek treatment, the younger you are and the less painful your condition, will mean that you require less treatment to get Back to Life!
2. It’s better and I don’t want to feel the pain again!
This is the corrective / restorative care phase, and during this phase, you have to allow the muscles and other tissues to heal more completely, thereby helping to prevent injury. It is typical to need care for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Common time lines are:
- Mild 3-6 months weekly, then alternate week, then monthly visits.
- Moderate 6-12 months weekly, then alternate week, then monthly visits.
- Severe 8-24 months weekly, then alternate week, then monthly visits.
3. I can function again. Let’s talk about keeping in tip-top shape!
Once your body has fully healed, we recommend that you come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 2 to 4 times per year, based on your lifestyle and goals.
During the initial health consultation, tell us what you desire from your life and what you believe is preventing you from making this a reality. We assess your current well-being and then determine the best course of treatment to attain a life without limitations.
