The spine is our body's life force. It sends millions of signals directly from our brain out to each part of our body. This vital communication is what keeps us going each and every day. A healthy spine is essential to our whole body wellness. When our spine becomes injured or misaligned, it can cause a cascade of problems to the other parts of our body. This interruption in the signals, from the brain to our body, can eventually lead to pain and to disease. By healing the spine, we can help you get relief from the pain you are experiencing and get your body healthy again. A healthy spine equals a healthy life.
Like all good things in life, healing takes time. Chiropractic care is no different. The body needs time to adjust and change in order to properly and fully heal. The healing and relief you can experience is well worth the time and effort. Here is a snapshot of what your path to healing may look like here at Life Family Chiropractic..
Our first goal is to get you out of pain and on the road to feeling better. Relief and healing takes time. Based on how severe your problem is, it is common to receive care 2-3 times a week for about 4-12 weeks.
The next step is to allow your muscles and tissues to more thoroughly heal. In doing this, we are better able to prevent other injury. It is common to receive care 4-8 times per month for about 6-24 months, according to the severity of your problem and your body's overall health.
Once your body has healed, it is vital to maintain that healing by receiving adjustments periodically. This continual care is important to maintain the healing you have obtained and to prevent future problems. This is usually just requires a periodic visit about 1-4 times a month, depending on your need, your lifestyle, and your personal goals.
Overview of the First Visit
Your first visit at Life Family Chiropractic will consist of a consultation, an examination, and X-rays if needed. This evaluation will help discern the primary cause of your pain and will advise the doctor as to what type of care plan is needed. Typically, an adjustment is not performed during the first visit. It is essential that the doctor has a clear picture of the shape your spine is in before administering the first adjustment. The first visit equips the doctor with the knowledge he needs to provide you with the very best care for your specific needs and concerns.
