Chiropractic Care: What to Expect
LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR Your Care At Bird Chiropractic
Just like any medical practice, there are phases of care based on your particular symptoms. Certain things have to happen in a certain order for your body to return to its normal state and work as it was meant to. These are the three phases of chiropractic treatment:
Phase 1:Relief Care
Majority of new patients are coming into our office complaining of pain. So the first phase of care is focused on providing pain relief. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need chiropractic treatment 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective & Restorative Care
Once we have provided our patients with pain relief, we can begin to get down to the root of the actual problem. During corrective chiropractic treatment, your muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps to prevent a recurrence of the issue that brought you into the office in the first place. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3:Wellness Care
Once your pain is gone and your muscles and tissues have fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Think of it like having your car tuned up to make sure it continues to run properly. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
