Depending on your condition, health care goals (feel better, get better, or stay better), finances and schedule, you may choose from different levels of care.
Acute/Relief Care – This initial treatment is intended to decrease inflammation, reduce spasms, and alleviate pain. The number of treatments necessary to accomplish this depends on your age, underlying spinal condition, condition duration and other lifestyle choices.
Corrective/Rehabilitative Care – During this level of care, we are primarily concerned with the strengthening of the soft tissue around the joint. This structural approach is designed to help prevent a relapse back into acute/relief care, and to aid in “holding” the correction in place and possibly creating structural improvements.
Maintenance or Wellness Care – Maintenance care prevents lapses of previous conditions and addresses new conditions before symptoms appear.
