Thumbs Up to Relief
Most people present to this office because they are in pain. In this initial phase of care, the primary goal is to reduce your symptoms. In most cases this will require a moderately aggressive course of care in terms of frequency. In most cases we might see you two to three visits per week for a short time.
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 a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
