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.
