Laying the Foundation for Total Health
In some ways, one could say the combination of chiropractic care and craniosacral therapy are 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 all these therapies address 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.
There are three general phases of wellness 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 a patient to need treatment 1-2 times per week.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of wellness 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.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic wellness care to avoid further problems. Usually, this phase of wellness care is based on your lifestyle and goals.
