Three Major Stages of Chiropractic Care
Most things in life are a process that involve numerous stages. The well-known advertisement for a brand of shampoo that famously said, ‘It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen’, could be applied to so many different scenarios. Chiropractic care is no different.
Stage 1 of chiropractic care is all about relieving your pain and restoring your function.
Appointments usually need to be fairly frequent during this stage, depending on the severity and location of your pain.
So you’ve graduated from stage 1, congratulations. After an initial treatment period, stage 2 begins: the rehabilitative stage.
During this stage, you will need to schedule regular appointments to continue your pain relief process. These sessions will play a major role in preventing a relapse of your original problem.
Don’t give up now, you’re almost there! Welcome to stage 3.
Although some patients may choose to skip this stage, the third stage of chiropractic care is extremely important. These maintenance-oriented sessions are only needed periodically (depending on your specific situation or preference). Along with healthy lifestyle changes, periodic chiropractic maintenance appointments can help some people to remain pain-free.
