Laying the foundation

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 . . .

Consider Chiropractic Care, natural solutions

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our Chiropractic office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, and your current health status,  it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for several weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are able to heal more completely, thereby helping to establish more functional postural and movement patterns. This is essential in preventing re-injury. It is common to need care 1 to 4 visits per month for 6-12 months, depending on your overall health, consistency with home exercises  and the severity of the original condition.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

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 periodic visit to the Chiropractor based on your lifestyle and goals.

Testimonial

Dr. Donovan, the Receptionist Dee, and the Massage therapist Maren are amazing. Many years ago I vowed I would never go to a Chiropractor because I was so terrified something horrible would happen. But after constant headaches for a several years that pain killers did very little to help, I psyched myself up to see a Chiropractor. The receptionist Dee was the nicest most caring person and put all my fears to ease. I first saw Maren who was so informative, patient, thorough and did wonders for my tight shoulders and neck. The lymphatic drainage treatment was awesome and I felt amazing. I then saw Dr. Donovan a few days later and was so please with my visit. He is a very gifted doctor who knows exactly what to do to help. I told him all of my symptoms (and fears about being there) and after my first appointment could already feel a big difference. Since that time I have had several appointments and each time I continue to get better. And best of all my headaches have decreased significantly in only a few short weeks! I love their holistic approach and natural methods to getting the body to help heal itself. I am no longer terrified of chiropractors and will continue to see Dr. Donovan and Maren for years to come! Dr. Donovan did more to help my awful headaches than any other doctor. I'm so thrilled to have found such a wonderful Doctor's office!
