The first thing most new patients want is to feel
better. So, In the Initial Intensive Care phase, visits are usually
frequent. Your chiropractic adjustments may be combined with other
procedures to help relieve your symptoms.
With your ache or pain reduced, the goal of Rehabilitative
Care is for more complete healing to occur. Underlying muscle and
soft tissue damage can remain, even after you feel better. At this
stage, visit frequency is often reduced. You may be urged to supplement
your care with exercises, dietary changes, or other self-care procedures.
Without complete healing, discontinuing care now can set the stage
for a relapse.
After you have recovered from your original problem,
the doctor may discuss wellness care with you. Check-ups can help
preserve your progress. Periodic visits can help catch little problems
before they become major concerns. Wellness-minded adults and their
children choose this type of care to look and feel their best. Like
other preventive measures, a chiropractic lifestyle can save time
and money by helping you stay well.
