New patients typically present to our clinic with conditions and pain that they've had for several weeks, months, or even years. Spinal misalignments from traumas or repetitive stress lead to nerve irritation, and spinal muscles and ligaments get over-stretched and damaged. A chiropractic adjustment will relieve nerve pressure and help relieve symptoms temporarily but most often one adjustment (relief-only care) won't correct the underlying problem or allow the affected nerve/muscles/ligaments to fully heal. With a properly designed course of corrective care, nerve pressure is relieved, and muscle and ligaments heal properly allowing for full spine and nervous system function. This helps the body get well and perform at optimal function.
At Stange Chiropractic we will provide relief-only care if the patient prefers this, but we will also let you know what a course of corrective care would look like for your specific health needs.
With corrective care you will not only feel better for a day but gain health for a lifetime.
