What to Expect At Your First Chiropractic Visit
When you first begin chiropractic care, it is very normal for many people to be concerned about what you will expect in your first few visits. By the time most people arrive at their first chiropractor’s visit, they have already tried other types of pain relief or treatment for their injuries. Chiropractic treatment is often described as a method of treatment that is build one layer upon another. There are certain layers that must be established first in order to get the most effective type of treatment. When these layers are put together just right during chiropractic care a patient can expect to begin experiencing their body repair itself. Chiropractors call these layers the chiropractic plan of care. When patients understand what to expect at each layer of care they can feel more comfortable as they embark on their journey of healing.
The first part of the chiropractic plan of care is relief care. The relief care part of your therapy will address immediate pain issues that patients are facing. Generally relief care depends on the severity of the pain.
Getting accustomed to this new type of therapy that your body is experiencing can feel challenging to some patients. However, remaining consistent through phase one of your chiropractic care is essential to your long term healing and health. The chiropractic team at Soloman Chiropractic will ensure that this first phase of your care is as comfortable as possible.
The corrective or restorative care phase is the second layer in your chiropractic care plan. The muscles and tissues of the body will be able to more completely heal during this phase of care. This phase of care is very important as it will assist with cutting down the chances of future injuries. Each patient’s particular circumstances will contribute to your chiropractor’s specific care plan for you.
Wellness care is considered the third phase of the chiropractic care plan. During this phase is marked by the time in which your body is fully healed. A maintenance phase of chiropractic care is very essential to long term healing and health. This phase generally requires that patients only come in periodically for adjustments. This type of care will ensure that patients avoid future injuries and issues. Your personal results will help decide how your particular wellness care phase is developed.
