Acute Care: Acute (or relief) care is perceived as treatment for the reduction of pain when pain limits activities of daily living. Patients in need of acute care will often need to be treated more frequently until symptoms are resolved. Many people seek care in our practice and have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:
- Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
- Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
- Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
- Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care
Rehabilitative Care: Rehabilitative care is a level of care that requires therapeutic activities, neuromuscular reeducation and specific myofascial or soft tissue treatments to address musculoskeletal deficiencies. In this second stage, attention is given to the restoration of function and core strength, posture and overall well-being.
Wellness Care: Some patients find us to facilitate continued health, while others reach for wellness care following management of health challenges. Wellness care focuses on maintaining health and vitality with a strong emphasis on diet, nutrition, exercise, specific nutritional supplements and chiropractic assessment every 4-6 weeks to sustain stamina and endurance needed to maintain optimal health.
