Chiropractic Care

  1. Initial Care. Visits tend to be frequent (usually 3 times per week for 1-3 weeks), in order to decrease the acute process and restore posture, balance and function as quickly as possible. In addition to your adjustments and exercises, the doctor may also recommend other therapies including electrical muscle stimulation, cold laser therapy, aqua massage (whirlpool), non-needle acupuncture, detoxification therapy and/or whole body vibration therapy and /or nutritional therapy to help speed recovery and relieve your pain. Your age, condition, lifestyle and response to care will determine the duration of this frequency.

  2. Rehabilitative Care. With most of your intense symptoms gone, the goal of Rehabilitative Care is long-term correction of your condition. Your visit frequency will be reduced, and there will be a greater emphasis on self-care. Even after you're feeling better, joints, muscles, and other soft tissues can take weeks, or even months, to heal. Continued treatment during this phase will ensure proper healing & recovery and help to prevent a relapse.

  3. Wellness Care. After you've recovered, you may choose to schedule regular chiropractic "checkups" to help maintain the improvement you've made. Wellness Care can help catch little problems before they become major concerns. Wellness Care is an option that many of our patients choose to feel better, improve athletic performance, prevent injury, and save time and money in the long run. Recommended visit frequency is usually 1x/1 – 3 months, but it can vary depending upon your individual needs and lifestyle.


Spinal Treatment

The cornerstone of chiropractic health treatment is spinal manipulation, often called the "adjustment". It may involve either gentle pressure, or a quick thrust to restore normal motion to joints that have become restricted or "locked". While manipulation may be performed by other physicians, Doctors of Chiropractic have the most extensive experience and education in manipulation, performing 94% of the spinal manipulations in the United States. Numerous scientific studies have proven the efficacy, safety, cost-effectiveness and high levels of patient satisfaction of spinal manipulation. As a result, it is one of only two treatment protocols given the highest recommendation for the treatment of low back pain by the Agency for Health Care and Policy Research (AHCPR), an arm of the US Department of Health and Human Services.
