Corrective care focuses on correcting the posture of the body back to as close to normal as possible. This stage occurs after pain and inflammation are addressed and is a much more holistic approach with longer lasting results. If care is stopped when pain leaves, then often the problem will return, because the underlying cause of the problem has not been addressed. With corrective care, we address the cause of your problems so that recurrence is less likely and results are longer lasting. “ THERE IS A VAST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TREATING EFFECTS AND ADJUSTING THE CAUSE” D.D. Palmer (Father of chiropractic).
Pain relief is just the beginning of the healing journey. Often pain is one of the last things to occur when there is a problem with the spine, and one of the first things to go when treatment begins. This is important because it tells us that pain or symptoms are not necessarily a good indicator of how bad a problem is. While we are concerned with how you feel and definitely place importance on getting you feeling better by reducing or eliminating your pain or other symptoms, we want you to be as healthy as you can be. For your body to function at its optimum, corrective care is what is needed.
