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
Depending on the severity of your problem, frequency of care is necessary. Time and repetition are two of the most important ingredients in the healing process.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to
heal more completely, thereby helping
injury. It is typical *for the frequency* *of care to taper off during this time *depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments *to keep your spine and nervous system functioning optimally* and to avoid problems in the future. *Usually, this requires regular and consistent adjustments, the frequency of which is* based on your lifestyle and goals.
