Laying the foundation 

Chiropractic care is like building a house – certain things have to happen in a particular order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

In this first phase of care the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. This typically requires 1-3 visits per week.

Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them and that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health.

For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care pain is the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent future injury. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your pain may be gone.

During the correction/restorative phase you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches to help accelerate your healing.

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.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed it is recommended that you come in for periodic adjustments in order to maintain the progress you've made. Usually this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor on an as needed basis, based on your lifestyle and goals.

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 continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is important to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.

When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through. Your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
