Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms.
This phase of care can be compared to a physcial therapy modality treatment frequency. Our general treatment plan for severe pain (typically disc conditions) can require multiple visits your first week of treatment; three visits a week for two to three weeks; twice a week for two to three weeks; and finishing once a week for two to three weeks. This treatment plan can be accelerated for certain individual based on ability to heal, and our job is to recognize this and determine if the weakness of the tissues involved have been overcome. Although disc issues can be very painful and require more pain management care, most cases are less severe and on average range between 12 and 18 visits for total case management.
At Stine Chiropractic Clinic, your chiropractor is a board certified Chiropratic Orthopedist from the American College of Chiropractic Orthopedists and a Fellow of Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists.
