Reduce your symptoms
Many people seek out the help of a chiropractor because they are in pain. During the first phase of care, our main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits or even 2 to 3 visits for a week at a time.
This will depend on your specific needs and lifestyle. Everything will be explained to you and you will provide consent before any treatment is determined and used.
Don't let it progress
Most people think that if they don’t feel any pain, there is nothing wrong with them. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes it takes several years for pain to show up and by then, you may require extensive treatment in order to feel any relief.
Pain and other symptoms often only become apparent after disease or problems have progressed into an advanced stage that is harder to treat.
Thumbs Up to Relief
Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
