Phase 1: Relief Care

Thumbs Up to Relief

Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.

Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.

For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

  • "I injured my back in July of 2009. Because my back was not getting better on its own I went to physical therapy for six weeks about six months after the injury. At that time I had muscle pain and tightness in my mid and lower back. The PT did not seem to help so I just dealt with the pain and stiffness for another year. I finally decided to go to Sterchi Chiropractic for an evaluation. They found some arthritis and degeneration. Nothing too severe. I had Chiropractic Treatments, Massages, and was taught several core exercises. After 6 weeks of treatment there I feel up to about 90%. The exercises to strengthen core muscles are the key. I think that this approach was better than regular PT. Thank you Sterchi Chiropractic."
