What to Expect

Laying the Foundation

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular 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: 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, will dictate the frequency of your care.  If someone is in a lot of pain, and/or has been in pain for a long time, we may recommend getting checked multiple times per week over the first 4-12 weeks.  Once pain has subsided and we know the system has stabilized, we will move to the next phase of care.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury.  Because the body is now more stable and adapting better to stress, the frequency of care typically comes down.  Depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem will dictate how long this phase is needed.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is beneficial to come in for regular checks to maintain a high level of health.  The most common care plans are those in which people come get checked anywhere between 1x per week to 1x per month, based on their lifestyle and goals.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "The Chiropractic Café is a very Warm and Friendly environment. As a physician myself, I think Drs. Rick and Elizabeth do a great job explaining their treatments and have extremely good bedside manners. They do a great job creating the doctor/patient relationship which is one of most important parts of any healing modality. I would highly recommend them to all my friends and family!"
