Three Types of Chiropractic Care
Most people are unaware that chiropractic care has much more to offer than pain relief. Typically, there are three reasons why people seek help from a chiropractor. At WFC, we provide all types of care listed below and encourage patients to explore all the benefits chiropractic can provide.
Often patients will initially come into the office seeking relief from a specific ailment or condition, such as neck pain, back pain or headaches. Chiropractic is NOT a cure for any of these conditions, but by addressing the dysfunction in the spine and nerve system as a possible cause of these issues, chiropractic adjustments can often provide natural pain relief. Instead of resorting to the use of drugs and surgery, many patients get adjusted to correct their spinal misalignments (subluxations), remove the interference to their nerve system and allow their bodies to heal naturally and feel pain-free.
Patients who begin in the Relief Care category typically realize throughout their Initial Intensive Care Plan that by getting adjusted regularly, their spine and nerve system will be stronger and more stable, allowing them to prevent similar issues from occurring again in the future. In the office, we often ask patients, “Would you wait to brush your teeth or go to the dentist for a cleaning until AFTER you have a cavity?” Of course not! The concept here is quite similar. Check the spine, correct the subluxations and remove the interference to the nerve system before the problem even has a chance to arise in the first place.
Often confused or lumped in with Preventative Care, Wellness Care actually has much more to offer. While Wellness Care does focus in part on prevention, its true goal is to allow the body to function and heal at its 100% optimum level. By correcting subluxations in the spine and keeping proper nerve supply flowing to all the cells, tissues and organs in the body, patients can experience a higher level of health and function from the inside-out. Wellness patients bring in their children and other family members for regular spinal check-ups to ensure the nerve system is operating with as little nerve interference as possible. These families often get sick much less than others, have fewer visits to their medical doctors, have more energy and mental clarity, more easily adapt to stress, and, in general, live fuller, healthier lives.
At WFC, we do our best to educate all of our patients about the benefits of Wellness Care and encourage families to get adjusted together regularly!
