Approaches to Chiropractic Care

  1. Relief Care- This stage of care is aimed at reducing your pain or symptom as quickly as possible. This is usually the most intensive stage of care, and aims to restore joint function and control inflammation as quickly as possible.
  2. Corrective Care- Corrective care aims to address the long-term, bad habits of your spinal movement. It can help retrain how your spine moves. It may also help prevent relapses or similar injuries later. Corrective care requires consistent, regular adjustments over weeks or months, depending on the case. At pre-determined intervals, full progress examinations take place in order to measure your progress.
  3. Preventative Care - As part of a natural, healthy lifestyle, people recognize that in addition to nutrition, exercise and emotional balance, proper body function is essential for good health. Regular chiropractic check-ups help ensure that the body continues to work at its best and sorts out any minor issues before they become symptomatic. Just like tending your garden or maintaining your car, little bits often reduce the need for major overhauls.

Note - This is intended as a guide only and will vary depending on how quickly you respond to care. Remember... The body's healing methods are complex and thorough. They take time. Patience and perseverance are essential.
