In case you aren’t familiar with what Chiropractic Wellness looks like, typically chiropractic care consists of three distinct stages of treatment; relief care, corrective care, and maintenance care.
Relief care helps alleviate symptoms of pain on a temporary or initial basis. This usually happens when the inflamed portion is decreased and the joint function is restored through spinal adjustment. You may see ice, heat, or cold laser incorporated during this phase. Relief care is only temporary if the underlying issue is not fixed as well. More often than not there is damage to the soft tissue which requires strengthening and healing. Weak or tight muscle patterns should also be addressed. Conditions like these are usually due to poor posture, micro-trauma, or repetitive use.
An element that takes longer because it addresses trauma and faulty muscle patterns is called corrective care, another portion of chiropractic care. The condition and integrity of the spinal column, the severity of the injury, the age and physical condition of the patient, and the duration of the problem are all pieces that need to be taken into consideration when looking at length of treatment. Corrective care will normally include soft tissue therapies and rehabilitative exercises as well as spinal adjustments.
The last stage of chiropractic care is called maintenance care. This part ensures that the integrity of the spine will be supported and sustained. It is important to monitor the health and condition of your spine through periodic evaluations because even daily activities put bio-mechanical strain on your body. Simple chiropractic adjustments will help to ensure that you are living at a high standard of health.
