Laying the Foundation for Total Health
Chiropractic care 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: Acute Care
Acute Care addresses the symptoms. This is the most intense portion of care with the objective to have you feeling better. Your adjustments will be frequent, ranging from multiple times per day, 4 times per week, 3 times per week, etc., varying on your present state. In conjunction with your adjustments, active care may be utilized to engage and re-educate muscle stability. Nerve to muscle memory is influenced by your age, condition and most of all your lifestyle. Acute care is approximately a 3 month duration and time and repetition are essential to your success.
Phase 2: Optimal Care
Optimal Care addresses the stressors know as the 3T’s (thought, trauma, toxins). These are the emotional, physical, and chemical stressors leading to the underlying cause of dis-ease. While not only stabilizing your spine and nervous system, optimized care promotes better function and optimal healing. Energy levels can change, breathing is easier, metabolism is boosted and long-term healing continues. With the systems addressed optimal health is within reach. The CORE score has improved and change in the positive direction is noticed. Optimal care is approximately 12 months of consistent care with accompanying lifestyle changes, the frequency of adjustments is often reduced.
Phase 3: Lifestyle Care
Lifestyle Care is based on your commitments and maximizes the expression of perfection within. Life is expressed at its fullest. We continue to monitor and manage the nervous system on a weekly basis addressing any subluxations present. These preventive measures saves time and money by promoting a vibrant life.
