Welcome to our Lake Oswego Chiropractic Office
Laying the Foundation for Optimal Health
Chiropractic care for the human body is like a mechanical alignment on an automobile. If the the alignment is off, it throws off the entire car, the wheels bearings, the wear and tear on the tires and so on. When your body is out of alignment, it throws off your entire body. There are three general phases of care we focus on here at our Lake Oswego Chiropractic office:
Phase 1: Relief Care -Just Help Me Feel Better!
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is very typical to need care up to two to three times per week for up to twelve weeks initially.
Phase 2: Corrective Care/Restorative Care
During the corrective care/ restorative care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping your body prevent injury further injury in the future. It is typical to need care one to two times a week for six to 24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. We want to insure it doesn’t continue to come back throughout your lifetime.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments for maintenance to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals. Just as you need to maintain your car, your home or your dental cleanings and brushing you also have to maintain proper spinal hygiene to stay healthy and mobile.
