There are many different types of chiropractic care. Most people associate chiropractic care with back pain and symptom relief. Although all Chiropractors are able to relieve symptoms, the doctors and staff at Best Life Chiropractic and Wellness Center will search for the true cause of any health condition and design a specific plan of action for each patient.
Relief care is designed to do just what it sounds like; decrease pain. Many chiropractors are very good at doing this, leaving their patient to feel gratitude for the short time the pain has been eased only to find themselves once again suffering in pain. Now the patient will usually return to the wonderful doctor who relieved their pain last time and again will be very appreciative for the care given. This type of chiropractic care has done wonders to promote chiropractic treatment for pain management, but it has also limited the general publics understanding of the true benefits of chiropractic care.
Corrective care is a completely different approach to achieving and maintaining optimal health. A true corrective care chiropractor will evaluate the Central Nervous System (CNS) completely. Corrective care evaluates the person for not only trauma and pathology but more importantly for function. Since our CNS controls every single one of our cells, tissues and organs we need it to function as close to 100% as possible. A corrective care chiropractor will evaluate the curves of the spine, while many relief care chiropractors will focus on a specific vertebrae. This is a huge advantage to the patient because without proper structure there will never be proper function. No single vertebrae functions independent of itself. Corrective care doctors will also give the patient a clear plan of action. Including scheduled re-evaluation and re-testing to measure progress along the road to health.
The true advantage of corrective care is the option to never have to rely on medication to manage illness. Corrective care will build a healthy body and immune system. The education process at Best Life Chiropractic and Wellness Center will teach you and your family how to achieve extraordinary health through our monthly workshops and community events.
