Laying the Foundation for Total Health
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. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. 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/Release
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better, and release the cause of the problem and any nerve interference (subluxations).
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care/Recreate
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is a time to rebuild and restore proper nerve system connections and allow your inner healer to build new pathways to a healthy body.
Phase 3: Wellness Care/Reconnect to Your Inner Healer
As our body is building new neurological connections, you can connect to your inner healer and allow your body and mind to reach your optimal potential. Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments and make lifestyle changes to avoid problems in the future.
