Here at Coastal Chiropractic and Wellness when someone enters our office we find that they could be suffering from a number of different ailments. We see symptoms such as neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ and much more.
If a new patient was suffering from any of those complaints, they enter an acute phase of care to focus on the problem and correct it. But what happens when the problem or problems have been corrected? What is the next step to make sure we stay healthy?
The answer is chiropractic maintenance. Just as you change the oil in your car to avoid future engine trouble, you must maintain your health and wellness once the acute issues have been resolved. Maintenance is defined as the process of preserving something.
At our office, we ensure corrections that were made in the acute phase of care are preserved for long-term correction and not just a quick fix.
Typically when you look at the body from a trauma perspective soft tissue often gets strained and becomes what is called “scar tissue”. Scar tissue is less elastic, less pliable and less moldable making it more difficult for the body to function. When scar tissue is attached to our spine due to a prior injury we have lack of mobility and overall function.
It can take the body a total of 12-18 months to fully heal. Again, here at Coastal Chiropractic and Wellness, we focus on long-term correction. It is very important to move onto maintenance care to be sure you obtain long-term correction and not a quick fix.
