If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you to discover why you are in pain and find the best road to help you to get better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
The first phase
The first phase of care is referred to as Relief or Acute Care. This is designed to eliminate or reduce the majority of the discomfort and stabilize the condition in the shortest amount of time. During this phase of care, visits will be frequent. Repeated visits will be required to reduce or eliminate the symptoms.
Remember, many of the conditions for which people seek chiropractic care have developed over many years and therefore, it takes time to correct these conditions.
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
The second phase
Once you have completed Initial Intensive Care the option of undergoing Rehabilitative Care will be available to you. The objective of the second phase of your treatment program is to correct any underlying spinal injury as well as strengthening the muscles, improve spinal function and provide more complete or optimum healing of tissues and organ systems.
Visits occur at reducing frequency and care is supplemented by exercises and modification of your daily and work habits. Remember, many of the conditions for which people seek chiropractic care have developed over many years and therefore, it takes time to correct these conditions.
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
The third phase
The third and final option available to you is Maintenance or Wellness Care. It is designed to maintain your improved health and spinal function. It also prevents the return of the original condition once spinal correction has been attained. Regular attention catches small problems before they become serious. Prevention saves time and money by helping you stay well.
Chiropractic visits, exercise and a sensible diet will help you enjoy the best of health well into the future. So now, if you do happen to become a grandparent, it really can be grand.
How Chiropractic Works
The foundation of Chiropractic and Network Care is based on the simple fact that our
bodies are self-regulating and self-healing organisms. By re-adjusting your spine towards its natural origin, Chiropractic maintains body structure and function. The result is better long term health without the need for surgery and drugs.
Chiropractic spinal adjustments are internationally recognised as safe and effective for all. We help adults, children, women during pregnancy, seniors and even babies in order to allow their body to heal and regulate itself naturally.
Chiropractic is simple, natural and recognises your body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic helps millions of people from pain and gives them better health every year.
Your nervous system is an extremely intricate, delicate and complex network.
It acts as the master controller of your whole body. Comprised of your brain, spinal cord, nerves and sensory organs, it reaches throughout your entire body.
Your nervous system controls everything, from movement, sight and sound to thoughts, feelings you experience. It also directs bodily functions we are less aware of including digestion, breathing, hormones, heart rate and the day to day ‘running’ of our body’s organs and cells.
Chiropractic is based on the knowledge that any interference with the flow of information and energy within your body can have a negative impact. This interference is caused by tension, misalignments or changed function of your spine; we refer to this as subluxation.
We focus on helping your nervous system to function at its optimum. To do so we improve the function of your spine and thus the communication of the nervous system. This can also help to improve your flexibility and posture, increase performance and mental clarity, cope more easily with the many stresses of daily life and allow your body to perform better day to day improving your overall wellness.Find out about our techniques
