What to Expect

Physical Therapy and Massage is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. 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 our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care two times per week for four to six weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase and after your second evaluation, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to drop the care down to once per week for the next four to six weeks, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic evaluations to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the therapists one to four times per month, based on your Physician's care plan.
