Chiropractic Care in Huntington NY

First, there is the initial INTENSIVE CARE phase. This is where you feel a pain, ache or any obvious symptom which prompted you to call our office and start care initially. We know that the first thing you are looking for is to feel better. At this stage of care, visits will be frequent and depending on your specific lifestyle, stress-level, age and condition, repeated visits over weeks or even months may be needed to reduce or eliminate your symptoms and help you feel better.

What happens during this process is we are improving the joint instability and nervous system dysfunction by reducing inflammation and increasing range of motion and we are starting to decrease muscle spasm. This is where the healing process STARTS.

Next, we have the CORRECTIVE CARE phase. Muscle and other soft tissue damage often remains after the original symptoms have improved. During this phase, our chiropractors at Balance Chiropractic and Wellness Center are going to stabilize your spine and promote complete healing. Visit frequency is reduced and supplementing your care with exercises, stretching, etc is usually recommended. With the aches and pains gone, more complete healing can occur and discontinuing care now may risk relapses to occur. Corrective care is much like orthodontics for the teeth. We are trying to restore proper position and spinal bone motion.

What happens during this phase is improving function, soft tissue reconstruction and muscle/ligament strengthening.

Finally, we have the ELECTIVE or WELLNESS CARE phase. When maximum improvement is reached, we recommend periodic "checkups." These wellness visits are important because they can detect and help correct new problems before they become serious or symptomatic. Health-conscious adults often choose this type of care for themselves and/or their children. Elective or wellness care can help you save time and money by helping you stay well.

What happens during this phase assures that there is spinal stabilization, optimal health and optimal function. Wellness care is much like periodic car inspections. Detecting issues before mechanical breakdown is very important and avoids serious and expensive future problems.

So whether you choose, initial intensive care, corrective care or elective/wellness care or all three is entirely up to you but we want to let you know that the healing process is exactly that-a process. If you invest the time and patience in your health, you will continue to reap the benefits for years to come.
