What to Expect

3 Steps to a Healthier You!

Providing excellent chiropractic care is like building a house – certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly.

When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body.

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 Chiropractic Care:

Step #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, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-6 weeks.

Step #2 - Corrective / Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 1-3 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Step #3 - Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

Quality On-Site Care

During the course of your Chiropractic Care, Dr. Gray and Dr. Zimmerman utilize Spinal Decompression Therapy which is a non-invasive, very effective treatment for intervertebral discs including herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative discs.

Cold Laser Therapy is also available and is often used in tandem with other forms of treatment to drastically reduce inflammation of joints, discs, ligaments, and the pain associated with common arthritic conditions.

Diagnostic studies include digital x-rays and orthopedic and neurological exams. A referral for an MRI, other imaging or tests may be recommended, when necessary.

Electric Impulse Adjusting instruments and spinal manipulation are utilized and soft tissue work and stretching are used as well. Massage Therapy is also available onsite with certified massage therapists.
