If this is your first trip to the chiropractor it's probably because you're in some pain. You probably have no idea about what chiropractic care involves, you're just looking to get some relief. At Back & Neck Care Chiropractic our goal is to make you feel better and to keep you feeling that way in the future. Not only will we take care of your immediate problem, we'll work with you to develop lifestyle changes that help to prevent this problem from ever happening again. We take a three-fold approach to chiropractic care. All three sections tie together into one cohesive unit, each leaning on the other in order to improve your quality of life.
The first sign most people have that they need to see a chiropractor is that they are in some sort of constant pain. This is our first concern when you visit our Vancouver, WA office, making you feel better so you can go on with your daily life. Depending on your physical problems, you'll probably come in for treatment 2 to 3 times a week for up to 12 weeks. In our office this can mean spinal manipulation, acupuncture, massage therapy, or a combination to achieve pain relief. This first step will be combined with the others, but for most patients is the most important. Unfortunately, this is the stage where most people decide they're well and stop going to the chiropractor. This can be a big mistake, as more treatments are necessary to prevent future injuries.
Most problems we see are caused by physical problems that can be corrected over time. In order to prevent your chronic pain from returning, we'll correct the problem that's causing it. For most patients this means coming in once or twice a month for up to 24 months. During this time, your muscles and tissue will heal more completely, making them stronger and more able to resist injuries in the future.
After your body has healed completely, less frequent visits are needed in order to keep your body in the best condition possible. This will help your body to stay healthy in the future, allowing you to live a fuller and happier lifestyle. You'll work with the chiropractor to find out how often you'll need to visit. Most patients come in anywhere between once a month and once a week. You may benefit from regular massage therapy, spinal manipulation, or one of our other methods for wellness during your visit. We also offer nutritional counseling for those whose chronic pain problems may be associated with excess weight.
