What to Expect

Laying the Foundation for Total Health

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care:

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care two to three times per week for four to 12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care four to eight times per month for six to 24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Cindy is incredible. She has helped me a number of times but this time I had a huge challenge. I had a terrible reaction to a prescribed medication that left me with such back that I couldn't walk properly. When I went in to her office I was actually shuffling because I couldn't put one foot in front of the other. By the time I left her office I was walking again and after 3 sessions I was pain free and never felt better. I don't know what I would have done had she not been there and was also willing to fit me in. My gratitude and blessings for always being able to help me."

  • "I had back ache and leg numbness if I slept more than 6 hours, upper back tension and ache, lower back sensitivity and ache, behind the knee tightness and ache, right and left hand aches, right and left shoulder pain, headaches and right hip cheek burning and ache. I can now sleep for 10 hours and not wake up with back ache and leg numbness. Lower back sensitivity is gone. Very little tightness in my knee. Hand and joint aches have gone away. Headaches are gone. I can't believe how great I feel! And I owe it all to Cindy Summers"
    - Richard Navarro
  • "Just wanted to let you know that I won my race yesterday. In fact, I killed it! I won by a margin of 2 minutes. I felt very good, had plenty of strength and energy. I also for the first time this season did a second race an hour later. My legs were a bit tired from the first race, but I felt very good overall and placed 10th in that race which I was very happy with my performance. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, and finally giving my body the fuel it needs to operate at peak performance."
    -Jerry Sanders
