In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our Amherst chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing symptoms, and you are noticing your body more and more it is not only important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future, but participants often find that they want to continue care because they feel healthier, stronger, and connected. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals. Many of our practice members actually choose to come weekly because they consistently feel so good and energized that their visits become one of the highlights of their week!

"My son can shoot the ball further. Now he can actually hit the backboard from the free throw line where as playing basketball this year he couldn't do that. He couldn't do that not even 2 months ago-can't think of any other reason why except for the care he's received."
