Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that NUCCA 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 NUCCA care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, then that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With NUCCA care, your body has to go through different phases 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 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 patients to need care 1-2 times per week for the first few weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective phase of care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 1-2 times per month for 6-12 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic check-ups to make sure you are holding your NUCCA correction.  When your correction is lost for more than a month at a time your body can easily slip back into it's old pattern that caused you all the pain in the first place.  Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 4-6 times per year, based on your lifestyle and goals.
