3 Phases of Care At Amazing Spine Care
Technique Methods in Jacksonville
At Amazing Spine Care, we apply a 3 phase-type of care to help you recover from pain and build a foundation for you to manage and treat your symptoms or conditions. Our highly skilled team of specialists will give you the tools and knowledge to prevent the pain from coming back or occurring in the future.
Phase 1 – Relief Care
Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, our 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, there is nothing wrong with them.
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.
Phase 2 – Corrective Care
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a patient’s care. If all that the chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of your condition recurring are much greater.
To prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing. Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed.
Phase 3 – Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure your physical problems do not return and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.
When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer.
