We take you on a five minute tour to familiarize you with our office. Next, the Case Manager will discuss the exam and the next three days. We will ensure that you understand the process, your insurance, and your healthcare choices as well as the services we provide. You will then receive an exam and X-rays so that the physicians can diagnosis your condition.
You will be observed to ensure that your health is in order and that the correction process can begin.
We will discuss your X-rays and treatment plan with the Doctor. Your Doctor will give you the steps and plans to correcting the condition you came in with. You will then discuss the treatment plan and payment options with the Case Manager.
Phase 1: Relief Care
In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. This may require daily visits, or visits two to three times per week.
When you begin chiropractic care, pain is the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition can remain. Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain, there is nothing wrong with them, and they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a poor indicator of health. Therefore, phase two is necessary.
Phase 2: Corrective Care
In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care, even if your symptoms are gone.
During the corrective care phase, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at our center or at home to help accelerate your healing.
It is important to keep in mind that flare-ups are common in this phase because your body has not fully healed. This phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years depending on the severity of your injury or condition.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, routine care ensures that your physical problems do not return. When you incorporate wellness care into your lifestyle, you will avoid many aches and pains that people experience, your joints will last longer, and you will be able to engage in more activities that you love.
