There are three general phases of chiropractic care: relief care, restorative/corrective care, and wellness care.
Relief Care: The first of the three phases of chiropractic care is known as relief care. This is when you initially come into our office, where the main objective is to provide relief to your pain symptoms.
Restorative/Corrective Care: The second of the three phases of chiropractic care is known as restorative or corrective care. This is the phase of recovery in which muscles and other associated tissues are allowed more adequate time to heal completely, therefore helping to prevent injury.
Wellness Care: The final third of the three phases of chiropractic care is known as wellness care. In this phase of chiropractic care, the main objective is to maintain optimal health in order to help prevent injuries in the future. Once the body has fully healed, it's important to come into the the office for continued care in order to maintain optimal body functioning and help prevent future injuries. In order to optimize your health, patient's in the phase of chiropractic care generally come into the office for care around 1-4 times per month, depending on your lifestyle and goals.
