Three Goals, Three Phases of Chiropractic Care

Each person is unique, and therefore responds to treatment differently. Healing times vary between people, and other factors often influence how a person responds to care. The type of work a person does, individual stress levels, weight, and other health problems must be considered when someone seeks chiropractic care. Each person’s care has to be designed especially for his or her needs – it’s not a “one size fits all” kind of care.

[Phase 1]  Relief Care

FEEL BETTER! Many individuals seek chiropractic care because they are in pain or experiencing other unpleasant symptoms. The primary goal in Phase 1 care is to increase the function of the spine and nervous system, alleviating pain and symptoms as quickly as possible. 

[Phase 2] Corrective Care


GET STRONGER! Once pain and symptoms have been significantly reduced, care is continued in order to prevent re-occurrence of symptoms. The primary goal in Phase 2 care is to restore the structure and function of the spine and nervous system by adding in stretching and strengthening exercises. 

[Phase 3] Wellness Care

STAY WELL! Now the proper structure and function of the spine and nervous system has been restored and the body has fully healed.  The primary goal in Phase 3 care is to maintain your improved spinal health in order for your body to continue to perform at it's highest level.
