Chiropractic for Pain Relief
Your spinal column, made up of 24 independant vertebrae, is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy day. It also encases and helps protect the delicate nerve tisse that carries every communication between your brain and body. This is why we believe the first step to a healthy and active lifestyle is a health spine, free of subluxations.
A subluxation is when two or more vertebrae aren't working together. This can cause you to experience pain, discomfort, decreased mobility, or many other symptoms. These misalignments often go unnoticed even while causing major miscommunication between your brain and body.
If a subluxation prevents the nervous system from functioning properly, it will eventually lead to symptoms such as shoulder pain, elbow pain, headaches and a host of other pain sysptoms. These symptoms are your body's only way of letting you know something is wrong. Unfortunately, by the time pain and symptoms and pain appear, the problems may have been present for months or even years.
Three Phases of Chiropractic Care
* Relief care - The objective here is to provide relief to any pain the patient is feeling. Aligned by Design uses several different techniques to reduce the symptoms and depending on the severity of the problem, it may be typical to require care 2 - 3 times a week for the first few months.
* Corrective/Restorative Care - After the initial pain has subsided, correctice care begins. This phase is when muscles and tissues are given time to heal to prevent injury. Patients will be completing exercises at home to ensure that the pain symptoms to dot reoccur. Flare-ups are common in this phase because the body hasnt fully healed yet. Depending on the severity of the condition, it is typical to need care 4 - 8 times a month for months.
* Wellness Care - This phase is typically after the body has fully healed, and doctors only ask you to come in for a periodic adjustments to prevent future problems. Visits to the Chiropractor during this phase can be one or more times a month.
