Chiropractic is not a cure or treatment for any disease, condition, or symptom. However, your ability to heal, recover, and stay healthy may drastically improve when your spine and nervous system are working optimally!
The symptoms and conditions listed above are usually what we call secondary conditions, which are caused by a handful of primary conditions. Our job is to figure out if the secondary conditions that you’re suffering from are caused by primary problems located in your spine and nervous system. If they are, we can help. If they’re not, we’ll let you know and refer you to the appropriate health care professional.
You can stop care at any time with no pressure and no judgement.
Once we’ve completed our comprehensive examination, we will sit down with you and explain the results of each of your tests. We will then provide you with a complete customized plan of action to correct the structural distortions related to your health problems.
Once you’ve completed your corrective care, we will perform a comparative neuro-structural exam.
Based on your test results and goals, you can make some new choices about your care going forward, which may include protecting your investment with maintenance or discontinuing your care. The choice is entirely up to you.
As defined by the World Chiropractic Alliance, the goal of the chiropractic adjustment is to correct spinal subluxations (misplacement of spinal vertebrae) by applying pressure to the bone to “unlock” it from its improper position. Our role is to “free-up” this misplacement while allowing the body’s innate intelligence to assist in the correction. Our chiropractors focus more on corrective treatment versus quick elimination of pain and discomfort.
We will evaluate each patient’s unique spinal problem and develop an individual course of care tailored just for you. Each chiropractic adjustment builds on the one before. The resulting recommendations are based on our chiropractors’ years of training and experience.
Every body is unique, so everyone responds differently to treatment. However, some general trends that can give us a rough timeline of results. While some clients experience almost instantaneous results, most start to notice significant changes within the first 3-6 weeks of their care.
Ultimately, the number of visits you’ll need depends on three main factors:
- What we’re trying to accomplish
- The severity of the problem
- How long you’ve had the problem
Based on these three things, we can determine the perfect visit frequency for you.
Everyone is different, so we will check in regularly and perform comparative examinations to ensure you’re on the right track and tweak your visit schedule if necessary.
