What To Expect

What To expect

Laying the foundation

Chiropractic care is similar to building a house – things must be done in a particular order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body must go through a particular plan of care in order to correctly repair itself and maintain a solid foundation. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .

Chiropractic Care Corona CA

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2 : Corrective / Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are enabled to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 2 times per month for 12-18 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid future problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month based on your lifestyle and goals.

PHASE 1 : RELIEF CARE

Thumbs Up to Relief

Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the 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 then there is nothing wrong with them and they are healthy. 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 the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

PHASE 2 : CORRECTIVE/RESTORATIVE CARE

Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person’s care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order 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. 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. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.

PHASE 3 : WELLNESS CARE

Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can keep your body in optimal condition and help ensure that your physical problems do not return. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order 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 and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.

Doctor Richter and his team are always very professional and courteous. I appreciate the friendly environment and quick service and treatment. I had an x ray assessment when I first went in, which followed with a thorough consultation, and they provided me cervical roller and sent me exercise I can do to go with my treatment package, as well as electro shock therapies. I'm only about half way through and my back and neck pain has relieved a lot!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is five minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week tapering to once a week or once every other week, with improvement.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions 1-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 to 15 (or more) treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt?
You may feel improvement in your condition (usually pain reduction) after the very first treatment. Sometimes you will not feel improvement for a number of treatments. This does not mean that nothing is happening. Each treatment is cumulative and results are often felt after 3 or 4 sessions.
Does it hurt?
What does a treatment feel like? There is little or no sensation during treatment - occasionally one feels mild, soothing warmth, or tingling.
