Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, 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 Chelsea chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. A customized plan of care will be determined depending on the severity of the underlying condition which may be causing your pain.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning.  The continuation of chiropractic adjustments help the body to heal.  The speed of time it takes is dependent on how well the member of the practice follows through with the chiropractic and wellness recommendations made by Dr. Olszewski.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic wellness adjustments to avoid further problems in the future, as well as help keep your body functioning at its best. Wellness checkups can be once every few weeks, to once every two to three months.  The frequency of wellness checkups are all determined on the wellness habits of an individual including diet, exercise, stress levels, etc.
