Relief Oriented Care
Are you coming to us because you are in pain? In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Pain is often the last to show but the first to go... in other words, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, think of a heart attack. Do you think that suddenly your arteries clogged and your heart couldn't get enough blood? No, It's a process that happens over time and most of the time, you don't even realize it. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
This phase occurs after you have relief from your initial symptoms and realize that you don't want to fall back into the lifestyle that got you there in the first place. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent that from happening, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the maintanence phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care. Your body has begun holding itself in the correct place.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed.
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like brushing your teeth to ensure healthy dental hygiene, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your nerve system.
