For what is chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care may include manual spinal manipulation, computerized spinal manipulation, instrument-assisted manipulation, soft tissue techniques, sports therapy, therapeutic exercises, kinesiotaping, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and/or a number of other techniques.
Based on the results of physical examination, health and medical history, a diagnosis is made which will suggest which form of treatment plan better fits the needs. After review of your condition and prescribed care plan, book your appointments with your chiropractor. At the time of your plan, your response to treatment depends on your health and mental state, as those able to perform the requisite home care activities respond better and faster.
The ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to improve the health, everyday function and overall quality of life of your musculoskeleton. A chiropractor is simply a technician for the spine and joints you have. By restoring your body’s biomechanical dysfunction, you begin to feel better, reduce the amount of pain you experience, and often start seeing other unexpected benefits, such as better sleep and faster recovery from colds.
I have begun my recommended treatment plan, what benefits can I expect?

There are two forms of chiropractic recovery programs; therapeutic care and remedial care.
Relief care is the most popular form, which involves pain relief and therapies intended to make you feel better with some correction of the original dysfunction’s root causes. Another type of plan is more short-term, which sometimes takes 6-12 visits on average. With this treatment you will start to feel better and are encouraged to pursue a rehabilitation type care plan to avoid a deterioration of your disease or something similar in the future.
Corrective treatment, by comparison, is longer lasting and allows you to spend more time in your wellbeing. It requires a duration of regimental therapy, which will help your body correct the biomechanical dysfunction present in your body. This kind of treatment enhances the function of your nervous system and addresses the root cause of your disease. In general, this form of program averages 36-48 visits with regular updates to track your progress and change your treatment plan as needed. When you graduate, you are allowed to continue with maintenance treatment and continue to reap the benefits of better health.
