Traveling the Road to Total Health
When you come to our office we will first want to find our where you are on your road. We do this through a consultation where you get to tell us everything related to your health. Including our question on this site and any information regarding nutrition, stress, injuries etc. After that we will want to discover what your body can and cannot do. There are simple tests we do to pinpoint the source of your discomfort, pain or disfunction. If more tests are needed like x-rays, cat scans, Mri's or blood tests we refer these out to other facilities.
Some people just want to feel better while others want to feel better, be healthier, and prevent the issue from returning. Next we will take all this information and decide and discuss what your options are and find the best road to return you to excellent health. Lastly we will decide if our office is the best place for you and your care. If yes, then we will work together to achieve your health goal.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our Oceanside chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
