At Northwood Chiropractic & Wellness we perform a thorough consultation and examination to find the root cause of your complaint and to determine if you are a candidate for Chiropractic Care. If there is something that shows up during this evaluation process that is beyond our scope of practice we will happily refer you to a specialist or to a primary care medical doctor. Spinal problems are one of the few conditions that will generally be accompanied by pain as a first symptom and can be reduced or eliminated through chiropractic treatments.
Our doctor will create a treatment plan fit for your needs to eliminate the symptoms that are occurring. After receiving initial care and eliminating or reducing your symptoms, some may believe there is no need for further treatments, actually, the Remodeling or Corrective Care phase is a very important next step. It's designed to restore, heal, and prevent symptoms from recurring. Your condition will determine the number of treatments needed to complete the healing process.
To help improve and accelerate the healing process you will perform certain therapuetic exercises at the clinic and/or in the comfort of your own home. This phase could take a few months or more depending on the seriousness of your condition. Soreness or flare-ups may occur and are completely normal.
