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:
Scheduling and Pre-Care
Since we are a mobile office scheduling is handled a little differently. You have 2 options to start you can download our app, request and pay for your appointment all conveniently in one place. Once the app notifies us of your purchase we will call you to schedule an appointment time. Or you can call the office directly and schedule your appointment with us and then be directed to the app to pay for your visit. Before your appointment we will need to receive your paperwork and payment. Either the day before or the morning of your appointment we will send a reminder text to the phone number on file, please respond to this text confirming you are still available. At the scheduled time the doctor (and possibly an assistant) will arrive at the designated address. At this time please have you phone available incase we need assistance finding the location. The doctor will need a 6'x8' open space to set up their treatment table.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you begin care, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care two to three times per week for two to 12 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
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 four to eight times per month for six to 24 months, 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 avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
It is our goal to move you through these phases as quickly as possible. The majority of our patients are at one time a month by the end on their first year of care.
