Many people associate Chiropractic care with headaches, neck and back problems. It is so much more than that. The spine houses and protects the nervous system that carries vital communications between your brain and your body. Dr. Monica Edmark has found that a healthy spine can help promote overall health.
Your treatment, regardless of the stage of care, will often include exercise, diet and other healthy living suggestions to help keep you healthy and strong.
RELIEF CARE is provided to relieve immediate pain, restricted mobility and discomfort. Depending on the diagnosis, your age, physical condition, how long you have had the current complaint and previous injuries, a few or several visits over a relatively short period of time may be necessary.
CORRECTIVE CARE treats more chronic conditions, that are recurring or have existed with or without pain for some time. They may require a longer, more complex period of care. Once the severity of your condition has decreased through relief care, corrective care can help to restore normal function to your spine, muscles, supporting tissues and the nerves affected by them.
SUPPORTIVE CARE, or maintenance care, helps maintain and preserve the benefits you’ve achieved from relief and corrective care. Chiropractors are also trained to detect conditions in their early stages, often before you feel pain or reduced mobility.
By continuing to work with your chiropractor and having periodic spinal check-ups and treatments, if needed, you will help keep yourself as healthy as possible. Dr. Monica Edmark will work with you to find a maintenance schedule that suits your condition, health care goals, and lifestyle.
