Stages of Care

Stages of Care

All chiropractic care begins with an initial history and examination, after which x-rays may be recommended to completely evaluate your condition.

On your second visit, or Report of Findings, your Chiropractor will discuss factors contributing to your condition and recommended a care plan.

There are generally 3 stages to care :- Initial Intensive, Rehabilitative and Maintenance Care

(Base of Iceberg).



Initial Intensive Care

The first phase of care is referred to as Relief or Acute Care. This phase is designed to eliminate or reduce the majority of your discomfort and begin stabilisation of your condition. During this phase of care your visits will be more frequent, with each adjustment building on the one before.

Rehabilitative Care

The objective of Rehabilitative Care is to correct any underlying spinal injury as well as strengthen muscles, improve spinal function and allow for the continued healing of your tissues and organ systems. Your visits will reduce in frequency and your care is supplemented by additional strengthening exercises and postural re-education if required.

Remember, many of the conditions for which people seek chiropractic care have developed over many years and therefore, it takes time and perseverance to correct these conditions.

Maintenance/Wellness Care

This phase of care helps to maintain your improved health and spinal function, and prevent the return of the original condition. Regular, preventative care addresses any issues before they become more serious.

Wellness care, consisting of regular Chiropractic adjustments, exercise, a sensible diet and positive mental outlook will help you enjoy the best of health well into the future.
