Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that achieving optimal health 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 as well as functional medicine 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 care . . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our Rolla 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 several visits may be required, but our goal is to find the root cause of your pain/symptoms and not just treat them as such. We want to correct the foundational issues causing your distress.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

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.

During the corrective phase of health imbalances it may be necessary to work on several issues; for example blood sugar imbalances, viral infections, bacterial infections, autoimmune disorders etc. We use diagnostic testing to determine what your level of health is. Often, once you begin to balance the body underlying issues become more evident and additional testing is necessary to determine the best course of action. 

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Wellness care requires occasional checkups to ensure that you are maintaining the level of health that you desire. Your doctor will discuss a long term plan with you that is specific to your care, when you reach a maintenance level of health.
