Laying the Foundation for Total Health
In some ways, one could say that integrated healthcare is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. There are three general phases of care . . .
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for wellness checks. This helps you avoid further problems in the future.
