Approaches to Chiropractic Care

  • Symptomatic Care – This stage of care is aimed at addressing your immediate concerns as quickly as possible. This is usually the most intensive stage of care, and focusses on joint function and aims to control inflammation as quickly as possible.
  • Corrective Care – Corrective care aims to address the long-term, bad habits of your spinal movement. It can help retrain how your spine moves. It can also help prevent relapses or similar injuries later. Corrective care requires consistent, regular adjustments over weeks or months, depending on the case. At pre-determined intervals, full progress examinations take place in order to measure your progress.
