Laying the foundation for total health
In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, 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/Initial Intensive Care
If you are in pain when you come into our Estero chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain or symptoms, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for several weeks. Every person's case is unique, therefore, so are their recommendations. The recommendations are explained to the patient at the report of findings.
Phase 2: Wellness and Corrective Care
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning!
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Now that you're healthy, in this phase of chiropractic care the visits are less frequent and do not take as long!
Wellness care is where Chiropractic differentiates itself from the medical model. This type of care is designed to allow the highest potential of function of the entire body. Wellness care is designed to help you and your family reach optimum physical, mental, social and spiritual well being.
