At Core Wellness Chiropractic and Anti-Aging Centre, care is divided into three stages:
As a new patient seeking help, you probably have pain or concerns that need to be resolved quickly. We take this stage of treatment very seriously because symptoms that are severe enough for you to seek care are probably disrupting your life. Loss of sleep, difficulty at work or even not being able to go to work, pain while sitting, standing, walking, or driving as well as many other problems are some of the issues that cause patients to visit our office. At first, you may need to come two or three times per week as this will allow for concentrated treatments to reduce or eliminate the symptoms that are occurring. We will order the least amount of visits to achieve the most amount of recovery. This phase of chiropractic care is considered the Relief Care Phase.
After relief care is completed, many people think because their pain is less or even gone that the problem no longer exists. But the truth of the matter is that pain is the last thing to show, and the first thing to go. If the cause of your problem wasn’t a traumatic event, the problem probably was there for a lot longer than the time you have spent in pain. If you did have an injury, the healing process isn’t complete. That is why stopping here doesn’t guarantee that the cause of the problem is actually fixed.
Corrective Care phase is a very important step needed to restore, heal, and prevent symptoms from recurring. Your condition will determine the amount of treatments needed during this phase of care to complete the healing process. To help improve and accelerate the healing process, we may add certain exercises for you to complete either at the clinic, or in the comfort of your own home.
This phase could take a few months or more depending on the seriousness of your condition. Soreness or flare-ups may occur during this time and are completely normal to expect. We will treat them as your condition dictates but they will become less and less as you progress through this phase.
Now that you are healed and feel better than ever, routine chiropractic care will help to ensure that this feeling will never fade away. A program including regular adjustments, exercise, and a healthy diet will help ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. The Wellness Care phase will give you the benefit of living life to the fullest.
