THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
Unfortunately most of our patients start care at the lower part of the chart, in pain. As you get better we’ll be able to space your adjustments out until you reach the level of wellness care. It is unfortunate that some of our patients drop out of care when they are feeling well. Several months later they will return with a relapse. These “yoyo” patients never get well and over time their condition deteriorates.
CORRECTIVE OR LONG TERM RECONSTRUCTIVE CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Corrective or Reconstructive Care consists of three distinct and separate phases. Each phase has a different purpose and approach to correcting your condition. Each phase builds upon the next and failure to complete all three phases will result in an incomplete correction.
PHASE I – INITIAL INTENSIVE CARE
Purpose: Reduction of symptom such as pain, inflammation and restriction of motion.
The importance of initial intensive care is to have you feel better as quickly as possible. The initial stages of structural change begin in initial intensive care ad the progression of spinal degeneration is slowed or restricted. The spine is neither corrected nor stable at the end of this phase.
PHASE II – RECONSTRUCTIVE / STABILIZATION CARE
Purpose: Restoration of Normal, Healthy Body Structure and Function.
The Goal of Reconstructive/Stabilization Care is to facilitate and advance the spinal correction process to the point of stability. The majority of healing takes place in this phase of care. Increased nerve function occurs during this phase allowing the body to repair damages.
PHASE III – WELLNESS CARE
Purpose: Maintain and Expand the progress achieved so far. The value of this phase is to maintain the progress you have achieved, to support ongoing healing and to help prevent future health problems.
