Chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, 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 Johnson Chiropractic, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. The severity of the underlying condition that is causing your pain is a determining factor for the duration of care. Most Johnson Chiropractic patients receive 1-2 treatments per week depending on the individual's chief complaint.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. During this time frame, the physicians at Johnson Chiropractic will work with you both in office as well as provide home therapies for you to optimize function.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, many patients find it beneficial to come in for periodic chiropractic care to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor to ensure proper body function. The duration between visits is based on your lifestyle and goals.
