Corrective Care Chiropractic

High Level of Accountability

We start with a complete radiographic analysis of your spine. This gives us a clear picture of how your spine has adapted to the stress of gravity. (We’ll compare these initial views with what we see later as your care progresses.)

Turns out that sitting puts more stress on your spine than standing. So we always take your X-rays… seated. And we take them the same way each time. This way we can accurately compare how your body is adapting to our care without the influence of uneven leg lengths.

Three Types of Care

The first phase of care lasts two to three weeks. Since most people begin chiropractic care with an ache or pain, we start there. During this acute stage, we’ll show you specific home care procedures to accelerate your results.

The second stage of care begins working toward lasting correction. This stage can take months to years, depending upon the damage to your spine. This, combined with the at-home procedures, can produce extraordinary results.

The third stage of care is designed to align and enhance your nerve function, postural alignment and endurance for life.  We believe freedom from health concerns, and that health freedom comes from building health on a day-to-day basis.  With this kind of care we can stay sharp and active well into our golden years!

A True Partnership

The truth is, we don’t “fix” you- it’s a partnership between doctor and patient.  Our doctor’s job is to teach and to adjust; it’s your job to follow through- and, not surprisingly, those who follow through with home recommendation get the best results. Simple as that.

 

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
