Chiropractic Care

A healthy spine is essential to our whole body’s wellness. When our spine becomes injured or misaligned, it can cause numerous problems to the other parts of our body. This miscommunication from the brain to our body can eventually lead to pain and to disease. But by healing the spine, we can help you get relief from the pain you are experiencing and get your body healthy again. A healthy spine equals a healthy life.

Like all good things in life, healing takes time. Chiropractic care is no different. The body needs time to adjust and change in order to properly and fully heal. The healing and relief you can experience is worth the time and effort.

Here is what your path to healing may look like at Life Family Chiropractic.

Life Family Chiropractic | Correction

Stage 2 | Correction

The next step is to allow your muscles and tissues to more thoroughly heal. In doing this, we are better able to prevent other injury. It is common to receive care 4 to 8 times per month for 6 to 24 months, based on the severity of your problem and your body’s overall health.

Stage 3 | Maintenance

Once your body has healed, it is vital to maintain that healing by receiving adjustments periodically. This continual care is important to maintain the healing you have obtained and to prevent future problems. This is usually only requires a periodic visit 1 to 4 times a month, depending on your need, your lifestyle, and your personal goals.
