Have you heard the common urban legend that “once you go to a chiropractor you have to go for the rest of your life”?
It’s not true.
There are three levels of chiropractic care available in our practice.
- Initial Symptomatic Care– This is where most people start. Our focus is to address the underlying cause of whatever it is that has prompted you to consult our clinic. The goal is here is on reducing inflammation and painful symptoms.
- Rehabilitative Care– With your major symptoms improved, continued visits are designed to strengthen and retrain muscles and soft tissues to make more lasting spinal changes. Postural correction, core stability and improving neuro-motor control are the main goals during this phase. Visits become less frequent, but you may be encouraged to do more to self manage your health with exercise and lifestyle changes.
- Wellness or Maintenance Care– With the visit frequency dictated by the unique stresses and health goals of each individual, wellness care is designed to help you be all that you can be. The goal here is focusing on maintaining your wellbeing and correcting little problems before they become big problems.
We take a scientific approach to healthcare. We monitor the outcomes of your care and only when health benefits can be demonstrated, will ongoing check-ups be recommended.
We see our responsibility as offering optimal recommendations based on our education, training and clinical experience. Your responsibility is to decide how far you want to take your care and let us know how we can best serve you.
The bottom line? How long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you. Get started today. (03) 9600-2200.
