People come to our office suffering with neck pain, low back pain, headaches or sciatica. The first step in your healing process is to determine the most probable cause of the discomfort through an examination and diagnostic test.

The next step is to determine the best care plan to get results quickly and keep the results. Our office uses evidence based care models, meaning we keep up to date on scientific research and chiropractic clinical guidelines.

There are 3 phases of healing. Each must be addressed differently from a chiropractic standpoint. In the first phase we work to help relieve pain and decrease stress on the joints. During this phase we select various chiropractic techniques. Our office utilizes low force activator techniques and classic manual adjusting techniques including Diversified and Gonstead.

In the next phase we need to help rehabilitate the muscles along with the chiropractic adjustments, and in the final phase we increase the rehabilitation portion of the treatment.

The frequency of chiropractic treatment visits is selected to achieve the best results as quickly as possible. Researchers have demonstrated that it takes 8 days, following an injury, for a substantial amount of scar tissue to form. This scar tissue slows the recovery process. In fact, waiting 8 days or more to seek care can mean it will take twice as many visits to recover.

Each visit builds on the last. Taking too much time between visits can allow scar tissue to reform and slow or halt your progress. Think of it as a string of dominoes... when they are properly spaced, everything falls into place as planned. If there is too much space between any two dominoes, the entire process can fall apart.

We get the best results by carefully following your care plan step by step. We will walk you through the pain phase, the remodeling phase and the strengthening phase of care step by step.

Our Louisville chiropractic team is ready to help you through the process.
