What should I expect from my treatment plan?
PHASE 1: RELIEF CARE (First 2–6 weeks)
If you are in pain when you come to our office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. If you are just getting acquainted with Chiropractic care, our primary goal is to identify your needs by doing a full physical exam and determining your strengths and weaknesses. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-4 times per week for 2-6 weeks.
We are so glad that you found us and want to take a moment to thank you for choosing our clinic! Our goal is to get you back on track by decreasing your pain levels, improving your diet, identifying your primary complaint and putting you on a plan of relief care until you are walking tall and waking up without pain.
The goal of this page is to help simplify the process for you and lay out a road map to your healing process. Below are answers to commonly asked questions, an overview of our general treatment plan (though each case will differ per the individual) and a full explanation of our instrument adjusting technique.
What is "Instrument Adjusting"?
Simply put, the Activator Instrument Adjustment Tool allows us to offer advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing state of the art, instrument assisted, chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today.
Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. We are able to work on infants, expecting mothers, elderly patients, those with fragile bones or chronic spinal issues, who otherwise would not be able to receive chiropractic care.
The Activator Method is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the
only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its effectiveness. We refer
to this method as "Gentle Chiropractic" and use it frequently with those who may be
apprehensive about Chiropractic care in the general sense of 'popping' and 'snapping' that
some have experienced with the classic method of manual adjustments.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care (Following 1-6 months)
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 need chiropractic adjustments about 1-2 times per week for 1-6 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness/Maintenance Care (Ongoing)
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 chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and your goals.
