What To Expect: 3 Stages Of Chiropractic Care


Unlike pain killers, which are what people often resort to when they experience pain or ache in the body, chiropractic care isn’t a temporary remedy. Like any other treatment, chiropractic care is a process which may or may not take time to see the result depending on your condition. But the good thing with a comprehensive treatment like this is that it provides you long term solution instead of just a quick relief that is most likely going to wear off after a couple of hours.

1Relief
The primary concern of people seeking a chiropractor in Singapore is the chronic pain that they’re in. What the chiropractor does at this point is lessen the symptoms and prioritize on relieving the pain of the patient. This stage often needs 2 to 3 sessions for the patient to feel the result, though many says even after just one session you can feel a considerable difference. 

2. Correction And Restoration
Now this is where it gets deeper. Pain don’t just come out of nowhere, when you are always in pain somewhere in your body that just mean there is something else that’s wrong. The pain is just a symptom. So if you stop the treatment at stage one, don’t be surprised that the condition would come back. That said, this stage is composed of less adjustments but stretches and exercise will be introduced into your treatment. This will correct misalignments and restore your body’s healthy condition. Just stretch your patience since this stage can go from a few months to a few years depending on how severe you condition is.   

3. Maintenance
Now this is the last but not the least stage. It’s called maintenance for a reason because continued chiropractic care will keep your body free of subluxations which will prevent the same issues from resurfacing. The point is that by still seeing your chiropractor in a regular basis, even after your original issue has been treated, it will promote healthy musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and most especially overall wellness.

So, with all the possible causes of sciatica, the question is, how do you treat this kind of pain? Well, most experts would recommend seeking chiropractic care. If you do, a chiropractor will review your medical history and put you under series of test to confirm if you do suffer from sciatica.

Neck Pain, Chiropractic Care And YOU!

Most people might have a neck pain these days or at some point but not a lot of them really understand neck pain. What some may find surprising is that it’s not just because you’re tired. Most often than not, there’s more behind it and the pain is just the symptom.

Causes Of Neck Pain

Being In One Position For Too LongIf you slump all day on the couch, sit all day at your desk job, or are doing any activity that makes you be in one position for extended period of time, you’ll experience stiffness and/or muscle spasms in the neck area which leads to pain.
Jobs That Involve Repetitive MotionIf there are jobs that require a person to be in a stagnant position, there are those that entail repetitive motion like those who operate a drill press or practically anyone whose job is in power equipment or continuous assembly line operation.
