The 5 Chiropractor-Approved Steps to Get Back to Wellness

Written By Preferred Family Chiropractic on November 8, 2018

Are you in a cycle of relief care – only getting help when you have a problem, and getting treatment for your symptoms and not your actual condition?

There’s a way to break that cycle and step into better health. It can happen with chiropractic care and a focus on physiology.

5 Steps to Achieve Wellness with Chiropractic Care

When you see a chiropractor, you’ll notice right away that they won’t just focus on easing your symptoms. Instead, they’ll want to ease your symptoms and heal your body for total health. 

It happens in 5 steps:

1. Relief (I want to feel better for the least amount of money)  

The first step to wellness is finding a way to ease your pain and get relief. Once the pain is under control, you can move on to the next steps towards total health.

A chiropractor will use various non-drug approaches to make pain a distant memory. A few include spinal adjustments, heat/ice therapy, therapeutic exercises, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and acupuncture. 

In fact, at Preferred Family Chiropractic, Dr. Mahoney is certified in acupuncture, which can be a beneficial treatment to help manage pain and stress.

2. Correction (I want to stabilize and retrain the muscles and ligaments of my spine) 

Next, once the pain is under control, you can move on to correction of the issue at hand. You might have to return to see your doctor multiple times so they can monitor your progress and the prescribed care.

Physio therapy will help you strengthen and stabilize the muscles of your spine and the surrounding problem area. This will help your body support healing.

3. Maintenance (I want to preserve the progress I have made) 

Once you start feeling better, you want to stay that way. Maintenance, including regular check-ups and adjustments, ensures you stay on that road.

4. Prevention (I want to avoid losing my health) 

Once you’re in good health and pain-free, prevention is important. Even if you feel good, it’s still essential to see your doctor regularly. This means any changes in your physiology (your whole health) will be monitored and addressed before they can become bigger issues.

5. Wellness and Nutrition (I want to be all that I can be)

Finally, when you’re in a good routine of health maintenance and prevention, you can truly call wellness your own. Wellness means you’re in optimal health, you’re continuing to take care of your body, and you take preventative measures to make sure you stay that way, including exercising and getting good nutrition.
