Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
I have taken my 20 month old to Green Family Chiropractic since he was a little baby for ear infections and respiratory infections. Anything from a cold to the worst being a double ear infection and crackly sounding lungs. I would always get my son started on herbal supplements, then get him adjusted and every time, it prevented a trip to his pediatrician and the use of antibiotics. I could see a big change in how he felt within the same day of the adjustment. Dr Crystal ' s office makes my son and I feel like we're at home. It has a very casual, warm atmosphere and is very kid - friendly. I also appreciate Dr Crystal ' s knowledge and suggestions on essential oil and supplement use.
