Three Stages of Wellness Care at Royal Palm Chiropractic & Wellness
There are many chiropractic and wellness services that are offered at Royal Palm Chiropractic & Wellness in Boca Raton, Florida. Besides the chiropractic care that is offered, there is an amazing wellness center.
We offer three stages of wellness relief. A typical patient will encounter three stages of care. You have relief care, corrective care, and wellness care.The first stage focuses on symptomatic relief such as reduction of pain and other discomforts. The second stage addresses tissue healing and normalization of function. The third and stage consists of periodic spinal care to prevent the formation of new injuries, minimize future flare-ups of old injuries, and prevent degenerative spinal processes from occurring.
Let us take a look at the three stages of wellness care in order of the treatment stages:
1 – Relief Care
The first stage of care for most patients is relief care. The primary goal during this stage is to provide symptomatic relief. Treatments focus on techniques and therapies that will quickly and effectively reduce pain and other discomforts. This allows most to continue their activities of daily living without being in complete pain and discomfort. Patients are recommended to “take it easy” but are encouraged to stay mobile and functional so long as there is not a risk of further injury or tissue damage. Therapies that reduce inflammation and muscle spasm are also used during this stage when present.
2 – Corrective Care
Stage two consists of correcting the problems which contributed to the condition. It also allows for healing and rehabilitating the injured tissues. It is extremely important that one complies with and follows the instructions given by Dr. Cantor during this stage of care. Tissues and structures that are not fully healed and rehabilitated are prone to future problems.
By sticking to your appointments, complying with home exercises and instructions, and following all other recommendations, this will help to ensure this occurs. Patients should also be aware that once the pain and discomfort have subsided, tissue healing and functional correction are many times still incomplete and will often require additional treatments.
3 – Wellness Care
Once spinal tissues are healed and spinal biomechanics have normalized you will be recommended to continue with periodic spinal checkups. For some, this could be just once a year, for others, this could be once per month. Chiropractic spinal checkups provide similar benefits to the spine, the same way dental checkups provide benefits for the teeth. Just like with cavities and heart attacks, irreversible tissue damage has generally occurred before the symptoms of spinal pain and discomfort become apparent.
These three steps will aid in your overall spinal and muscular wellness. It is important to see all three forward as well, so you can achieve optimal results. Our friendly and knowledgeable office will get you set on the right path so that wellness treatment can begin for you ASAP.
