Laying the Foundation for Total Health
At Korwitts Chiropractic, you will begin with a consultation and exam. In some instances, X-rays will also be taken. When you return for your second visit you will receive a report of findings and an outline of the care plan most suited for your needs. This will include a breakdown of your benefits and financials.
The Phases of Your Care Plan
In your care plan, you will go through four general phases of care: Relief Care, Corrective/Restorative Care, Stabilization Care, and Wellness Care or Maintenance.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our clinic, the first objective is to give you relief and get you feeling better as soon as possible. Phase One will generally make up approximately one third of your care plan. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical for Phase One to take 2-8 weeks with visits scheduled 2-3 times per week.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
Once the pain is mostly gone, the body’s real work begins. During the Corrective/Restorative Care phase, inflammation further reduces and muscles and other tissues start healing more completely. While pain-reducing rehabilitation exercise therapy is a part of Phase One, you will now be given exercises that will create new strength and balance and you will begin noticing positive side-effects of your care. Your doctor will usually prescribe two visits a week over the course of 2-8 weeks.
Phase 3: Stabilization Care
Once your body has repaired areas of deficiency and has restored strong movement, Phase Three is meant to stabilize everything that came before. This is the final third period of your intensive care plan, and with each visit you will notice an ever-increasing sense of well-being. During this time your doctor will be alert for any unexpected shifts that could be indicators of remaining weak areas. As long as you continue to invest full effort, your rehab exercises will likely take you to the best shape of your recent life. In other words, you’ll be feeling great!
Phase 4: Wellness Care/Maintenance
Now that your body has healed and stabilized to it’s fullest capability, it is important to come in for regular wellness adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this phase only requires seeing one of our doctors 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
