What To Expect...
Dr. Aussant will take you through a complete functional evaulation at your initial visit. We will show you where the various injuried tissues are tight, tender, overactive, weak, restricted and/or deconditioned, all of which can contribute to your pain. After reviewing and the explaining the findings, Dr. Aussant will customize a treatment plan specifically to attain your goals.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to decrease pain and help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-6 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
This the most important phase of care. During the corrective care phase, strengthening and stabilizing the region will help in preventing injury. Muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent reoccurance of injuries and chronic pain.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor, based on your lifestyle and goals.
