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 in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may 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 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 our Bath chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care 1-2 times per week for 4-8-weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues 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 perform a home exercise program and continue regular chiropractic care at a rate of 1-2 times per month during this phase of care.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, a regular wellness routine can help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. A balanced wellness plan will include regular physical activity, healthy nutrition choices, healthy relationships, stress reduction techniques, and practicing positive mental attitudes. Regular chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, reiki and other wellness treatments may also help your body to feel it's best.

When you make wellness activities part of your daily routine, you help reduce many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through.  When you take an active role in your health your body will feel better, you'll have more energy, and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
