What to Expect
Laying the foundation for total health
In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house – certain things have to happen in a particular order, this ensures that everything is able to stand strong and work together correctly. At one our two middle Tennessee chiropractic offices, either in Franklin or Murfreesboro, Tennessee when we like to think of building a house, we often allude to if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and may eventually even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain, and other related health issues. If something is not right with your body’s foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, 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 one of our middle Tennessee chiropractic offices, our first objective is to help you reduce the pain and to get you to start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition, which is what may be causing your pain. On average, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for approximately 4-12 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, the muscles and soft tissue of body 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 approximately 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 more acute symptoms of an injury, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. This ensures the body, and nervous system is functioning at its fullest potential. 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.
