Some patients come in for relief of pain while others understand that although their pain may have reduced, their joint and tissues may need further treatment to return to a normal state. There is not a one-size-fits-all treatment as the severity of injury, age, health status and recovery are different for each patient. Our physicians will talk to you about your specific condition and make care recommendations based upon your needs.
Much like seeing your dentist for a yearly exam and cleaning, seeing your chiropractor when you're not hurting is the best way to prevent an unknown joint issue. We have many patients that maintain their spinal health by coming in monthly to ensure optimal function and reduce minor spinal irritation.
Some patients are able to progress from Relief to Wellness after their first treatment as much of the pyramid of care is about choices that are made in daily life. If a condition is more severe then the healing and treatment can take longer. The term "heal" is a broad term used by many health care professionals,mostly meaning patients feeling less pain. We work to not just treat your symptoms but to ensure you "heal" well and are healthy.
