Dr. Mike explaining the 3 phases of care…
Initial Intensive Care
If an ache, pain or other obvious symptom has prompted you to begin chiropractic care, the first thing you want is to feel better. Office visits will be frequent and your adjustments may be combined with other procedures to help offer relief. Depending upon your age, condition and lifestyle, repeated visits over weeks or months may be needed to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.
Muscle and other soft tissue damage often remain after your original symptoms have improved. Rehabilitative care stabilizes your spine and promotes more complete healing. Visit frequency is reduced and you may be encouraged to supplement your care with exercises or other self-care procedures. With your ache or pain gone, true healing can occur. This phase of care is no less important to stabilizing your condition and continuing to improve your health. Stopping rehabilitative care may lead to a relapse if not followed through appropriately.
When spinal correction is reached, chiropractic “check ups” can help preserve and maintain your progress. Occasional visits can help catch little problems before they become serious. Wellness-minded adults choose this type of care for themselves and their children. Like other preventive health measures, Maintenance Care saves time and money by helping you stay well.
