Personal Care and Professional Expertise
At your first visit to Maximize Chiropractic, Clinic Director Dr. Tim Nicholl will meet with you personally to understand your medical concerns, lifestyle and goals. Dr. Nicholl will perform a medical evaluation and in depth- consultation. Upon clinical review, full x-rays and motion studies will be taken in order to specific the exact location of pain, discomfort, and spinal misalignment.
Phase 1: Relief Care
Many people go to the chiropractor because they are experiencing pain. During this first phase of care, our main goal is to get you out of pain and relief those symptoms. This typically requires visits three times a week for a couple of weeks.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them; that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is not a good indicator of health. In fact, you may not experience any pain until disease or other conditions have become quite severe.
Phase 2: Corrective Care
Just because your pain is gone does not mean your problem has been fixed, in fact most chiropractors regard the elimination of your pain and symptoms to be the easiest part of your care. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of the symptoms, it is necessary to continue treatment to truly fix the problem.
During the corrective care phase of your care, your frequency of office visits will reduce to two times a week for a few more weeks. Muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely to help prevent repeated injury.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic visits can help ensure that physical problems do not return. Usually a quick visit 1-4 times a month will maintain your new healthy spine. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is important to continue chiropractic care as part of your healthy lifestyle.
