Stages of Care in Chiropractic Treatment

It is important to understand the stages of care in chiropractic medicine because they are relative to those of other healthcare disciplines. Because chiropractic addresses core physiological and biomechanical aspects of the body, the process to correct problems without drugs or surgery can take some time.

Relief Care

The majority of patients consult a chiropractor because they have an ache or pain. In the first phase of care, the main objective is to eliminate or reduce your discomfort and stabilize your condition in the shortest amount of time. During this phase, progress is usually rapid.

The number of times you visit a chiropractor during this phase of care varies and is dependent upon your specific condition.

Rehabilitative Care

Once your condition has stabilized, you enter the second phase of care, where the objective is to correct any underlying injury or cause of discomfort, strengthen the muscles, and improve neuro-musculoskeletal function. The frequency of office visits is reduced over a period of two to six weeks. Care may be supplemented by rehabilitation exercises, nutrition, and modification of daily habits.

Wellness Care

The wellness phase is designed to maintain your improved health, encourage normal spinal function, prevent the return of the original condition and catch small problems before they become serious. A personal wellness care program will be designed specifically for you where we teach you how to incorporate good nutrition and exercise habits into your everyday life thereby promoting vitality, endurance and the ability to enjoy life at its fullest. It takes time and effort to maintain the health and wellness of your body but you know it’s worth it in the long run. We recommend a regular schedule of chiropractic check-ups to ensure attainment of you’re your ultimate goal: optimal health.
