Healthy Habits Don’t Appear Overnight
Don’t worry, we understand that you want to know exactly how chiropractic care works and what to expect. A common question that chiropractor’s, receive is “How many treatment’s do I need?” How you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you and your individual health goals. Chiropractic care programs and recommendations are based upon how you function and how you feel. Our mission is to build healthy habits and create positive lifestyle changes that last a lifetime.
Which Type of Care Fits Your Goals?
There are three types or stages of chiropractic care. Initial Intensive Care is for pain or symptom management, Rehabilitative or Corrective Care is for improved function and spinal changes and Wellness or Elective Care is for non-symptomatic or preventive care measures. We provide our recommendation for type of care based on an individual assessment of your health goals and lifestyle.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
In the beginning, visits may be frequent. Most patients start with Initial Intensive care. The first thing most new patients want, is to simply feel better. As a result, visits are usually frequent to provide quick and noticeable improvements in your overall health. Your chiropractic adjustments may be combined with other procedures to help relieve your symptoms. We combine nutrition and exercise with chiropractic care, to develop a proven wellness approach to build healthy habits. Visit frequency is reduced as patients respond to decreased symptoms and improved spinal function.
With your ache, pain and/or illness reduced, the goal of Rehabilitative Care is for more complete healing to occur. Underlying muscle and soft tissue damage can remain, even after you initially feel better. Like corrective eye lenses, Rehabilitative Care helps normalize spine function. Your frequency of visits is often reduced at this stage. Exercises, dietary changes, or other self-care procedures are highly recommended as supplements Rehabilitative Care.
After the recovery of your original problem, regular chiropractic “checkups” can help preserve your progress. Effective or Wellness Care involves periodic visits that can help catch little problems before they become major concerns. Just like how regular dental checkups prevent cavities, periodic visits to your local chiropractor can help prevent spinal decay and promote optimum health. Through preventative care and maintenance, a chiropractic lifestyle can help you save time and money.
