Laying the Foundation for Total Health
Chiropractic care is like Gardening- It takes work and it takes time. Plants need time to grow and produce fruit. God designed our bodies to heal and repair and that takes time. When planting a tree, a small plant, or just starting Chiropractic care, these all need more care at first. The plants need to get checked to see if they need extra water, feeding, or other help. Your family needs to get checked to see if they need neurologically based specific adjustments, or any other help to thrive. At Garden Life Chiropractic we love seeing people's lives thrive. That is what we want for you and your family! There are three general phases of chiropractic care:
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, there may be an increased frequency and intensity of getting checked for the need of neurologically based chiropractic adjustments. Using an analogy from gardening, if you plant a plant in your garden, you need to water it more at first. You may need to get your nervous system checked more frequently until your body gets more established and gets closer to optimum function.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles, bones, ligaments, and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, efficiently, and with ease thereby helping prevent injury. The brain talks to your body more freely without interference and continues to move towards optimum function!
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once a plant gets established in your garden do you stop watering, feeding, and taking care of it? People tend to stop taking care of themselves once they have no symptoms. If they applied that same mentality to a garden they would think otherwise. Why waste all that time watering, weeding, and taking care of the garden just to all the sudden leave it alone. The garden would get messy and the plants would die. Your health would get messy again and we would eventually need to start all over in Phase 1. Prevention is key! Preventative care costs less and hurts less than reactive care after a problem occurs and you are in pain.
