Are all patients given the same care at Forgey Chiropractic?
Our approach to treatment is fully customized based on your needs and goals, but there are generally three stages to chiropractic care: relief, recovery and wellness.
If you’re seeking relief from pain or experiencing a decrease range of motion, we will work with you to identify the source of the issue and reduce joint restrictions. We will make a treatment plan to reduce pain that may include at-home therapies like stretching or icing.
Once your discomfort and pain subsides, we move into the recovery stage of chiropractic care. Even though you are no longer experiencing pain, your soft tissues may still be damaged. During the recovery stage, we work to restore your body’s ability to health itself.
Finally, during the wellness stage, we recommend routine care that can boost your overall health and well-being and prevent issues from returning.
Is chiropractic safe? Does it hurt?
These are common questions from new patients. Chiropractic is one of the safest forms of healthcare because it is drug-free and non-invasive. Our patients rarely experience discomfort from treatment, and most report feeling immediate relief.
If I visit a chiropractor, will I have to keep going back forever?
This is a common misconception. While many patients choose only to pursue chiropractic when symptoms like pain occur, others subscribe to a more preventative approach to health and continue seeing us for routine appointments. Making chiropractic a part of your regular healthcare routine can help ensure proper spinal function and overall good health.
