What To Expect
Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. The same is true for your body. Our doctors are committed to fully understanding your symptoms and what may be causing your pain or discomfort.
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Our doctors will complete a physical exam so they can better understand what might be the source of your pain. This includes a foot scan to discover if falling arches may be playing a role. An X-ray may also be required to fully understand the source. Finally, the doctor will make adjustments in your spine using the technique that best fits your needs. At your second appointment, the doctor will share a Report of Findings with you to discuss what was discovered during your initial visit and discuss a treatment plan with you. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical for the doctor to recommend care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. 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.
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
