After the diagnostic appointment, your treatment plan will begin. Your plan may include adjustments to your spine, physiotherapy, and massage of soft tissue. It is important to note that this treatment is interactive so let Dr. Amosson and her staff know of any concerns about the style of treatment at any point throughout the program.
Before you leave, Dr. Amosson will offer a wellness program that incorporates a list of activities. We will collaborate with you to find healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle. Each individual is unique and so everyone requires a customized wellness plan.
In this first phase of ‘Relief Care,' our main goal is to relieve pain. In order to successfully treat your pain and correct your condition, you may require visits daily or biweekly.
Don't assume that just because there is no pain that there is no problem. Pain is usually the result of a problem that has progressed to an advanced stage. Like a tooth ache that is not painful until serious decay has taken place, so it is the same with your muscular skeletal system and spinal care. Whether it is heart disease, diabetes, stress, or spinal problems, pain is often the last thing to present itself. In chiropractic care, pain is the first symptom to disappear, although the underlying condition may require further treatment.
Eliminating pain is the easiest part of personal chiropractic care. But the treatment should not stop there because the condition can recur and relapse. During the restoration phase, adjustments are not required as often and exercises and stretches are incorporated to accelerate your healing and recovery time. Don't be alarmed if you have occasional mild pain flare ups. This is normal while your body restores itself. Depending on the severity of your particular condition or injury, flare ups might occur for the next few months, or potentially a few years.
After your body has completely healed, wellness care is recommended as routine therapeutic chiropractic care to ensure that your physical painful condition does not relapse. This will help you maintain the optimal aligned and healthy condition of your body. To ensure the optimal health of your musculo-skeletal system, maintenance therapy is strongly encouraged. Incorporating routine chiropractic care into your lifestyle will enable you to avoid the return of pain. Your joints will last longer; and you will be able to live a fuller, less painful life, doing the activities you love.
