chiropractic care begins with an initial
examination, after which x-rays may be
recommended to determine the seriousness of your
condition. In addition to being adjusted, you
may be given helpful at home exercises to do, dietary suggestions,
and ways to improve your posture.
The first phase of care is referred to as
Acute Chiropractic Care. This is designed to
eliminate or reduce the majority of the
discomfort and stabilize the condition in the
shortest amount of time. This
chiropractic care phase typically
involves repeat visits aimed at reducing
or eliminating the symptoms.
Rehabilitative Chiropractic Care: The objective of the
Rehabilitative Chiropractic Care phase of
your treatment program is to correct any
underlying spinal injury as well as
strengthening the muscles, improve spinal
function and provide more complete or
optimum healing of tissues and organ
systems. Visits occur at a reduced frequency,
and care is supplemented by exercises and
modification of your daily and work habits.
Remember, when an individual seeks the
professional services of an experienced
chiropractor, many of the conditions they
exhibit have been developed
over many years and therefore takes time
Chiropractic Maintenance & Wellness Care:
The third and final option available
is Chiropractic Maintenance or Wellness Care.
This treatment phase
is designed to maintain your improved health
and spinal function, and prevent the return
of the original condition once spinal
correction has been attained. Regular
attention catches small problems before they
become serious. Prevention saves time and
money by helping you stay well.
