The chiropractors at WOW aim to help you by getting to the underlying cause of your problem. Where you feel your pain may not always be where the symptoms are coming from. To get the best results there is an order that is followed. Think of it like planting a seed, you will not get the fruits of your labour unless you follow the process. You cannot skip watering or fertilising or the sunshine. It also takes time, just like the healing process, it takes consistency.
If the chiropractor feels that you will benefit from care at our centre, a bespoke plan of care will be put together for you including a ‘supportive’ package of care – these are things that you could do at home to speed up the healing process.
The first stage of care is called the initial intensive phase. The goal of this first stage is to improve mobility in the joints of your spine and pelvis (your segmental subluxations) which helps to reduce inflammation and results in a reduction in your symptoms. At the end of your schedule you will have a progress evaluation to check and see how much you have improved.
If you have achieved the goals from the initial intensive phase, the next phase of care is to correct the underlying structure. This is a different approach than 99% of other chiropractors and is similar to when someone uses braces on their teeth to correct the alignment. We are aiming to get the alignment of the spine to as near normal as possible. Changing curves consistently in your spine is not possible to do without an evidence based approach, despite what what many others may say.
At the end of your schedule you’ll have a digital postural evaluation using PostureScreen and a progress evaluation to check and see how much you’ve improved.
At WOW once you have undertaken intensive and corrective care we like to offer you accountability and to continue to be your best. We recommend wellness care to those who are looking for a preventative approach to their health. During this phase, your visits are spaced out according to your needs.
We do reevaluations regularly and at the end of your schedule of care you will have a digital postural evaluation using PostureScreen and a progress evaluation to check and see how much you’ve improved.
If you’ve opted not to have any corrective care we can still take care of you using regular periodic check ups to make sure the ligaments don’t tighten and cause a return of your symptoms.
You’ll have regular re-evaluations to make sure you’re on the right track.
