Thumbs Up to Relief
Many people have their first experience with Chiropractic care because they are seeking relief from some type of symptom. We understand that your goal is to find relief as quickly as possible. In your first phase of care, the main goal is to start to change the patterns of stress that are the root of your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy and back to 100%. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious and has been there for a while? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. Pain is the signal from your body that tells you that you need to pay attention. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also likely to be the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
