PHASES OF CARE
What approach to chiropractic care is best for me?
Most patients start going to a chiropractor to get pain relief for conditions such as neck pain, back pain or headaches.
Once your chiropractor has found the cause of your problems if they believe that chiropractic care can help you they will discuss with you two distinct treatment approaches:
- Rehabilitative Care:
WHat are the aim of crisis care?
The aim of crisis care is to provide short term pain relief for whatever symptoms the patient presents with on that visit. The chiropractor may recommend a short treatment plan or the patient will contact the chiropractor when they believe that they need further chiropractic care.
WHat are the aims of rehabilitative care?
The aim of rehabilitative care is to provide pain relief, restore spinal function and strengthen the spine. With this type of care your chiropractor will usually recommend a short treatment plan and then at the end of that time a comparative exam will be performed to assess your improvement and to determine if any further treatment is indicated.
You will also be given rehabilitative exercises to strengthen and stabilise your spine and advice on postural and lifestyle improvements that you can make to assist in your recovery.
how long should i have chiropractic care for?
Clinically we find that some patients get relief almost immediately however other patients have more of a gradual improvement over days and weeks. The number of times you will see your chiropractor is totally dependent upon your specific condition and is different for every patient.
We understand that everyone’s needs are unique and indeed can change over time. That is why we discuss with you these different approaches to care and help you choose which is best for you with your current circumstances. We will support you in whatever type of care you decide is best suited to you.
