Laying the foundation

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

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 3 or more times per week for the first few weeks of care.  While chiropractic "relief" care has proven to be a safe and effective method of obtaining relief from a variety of conditions, the next phase of care is equally important.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury.  In order to avoid a relapse and start the process all over, it is important to follow through with your care.  It is typical to need care 2-4 times per month for a few additional months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. 

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has reached maximum improvement, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future (just as you would have a periodic dental cleaning).  The simple fact is, it costs less to maintain your health than to let things go until a health crisis occurs - and preventive care is a much more pleasant experience than crawling back to our office in agony!  An occasional "tune-up" helps to identify minor issues before they become a painful and costly crisis. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor on a schedule determined by your lifestyle and goals.

Testimonial

When I came to see Dr. Perkins it was for my leg pain. I am a runner and I was not able to run 2 miles. Within about 3 weeks I am back on track doing my normal running.
