The best time to see the chiropractor is before you start experiencing pain. Many people associate their need for chiropractic care with the level of pain they are experiencing. Unfortunately, pain is not a good metric for assessing overall health.
Elimination of pain does not equal elimination of the underlying problem!
Symptoms such as spinal misalignment and carpal tunnel syndrome are common, persistent conditions that grow worse with time. You may not feel the pain now, but it is better to address them at an early stage before the problem compounds and escalates.
There are three general phases of chiropractic care:
Phase 1: Relief, whereby specific issues are addressed and treated.
Phase 2: Rehabilitation, whereby the intensive care of phase 1 is reinforced allowing complete healing and preventing re-injury.
Phase 3: Maintenance; after you are fully healed, regular adjustments are used to keep your body in top shape, with a full range of motion and free of pain.
We would like to see people start at phase 3, so they never have to experience the pain that leads people to reactively seek treatment.
Studies show that people who receive consistent chiropractic care sleep better, experience reduced stress levels, suffer from fewer degenerative diseases and overall enjoy a higher quality of life. Yes, you will benefit from chiropractic if you are treated with a few adjustments for a short period of time. But the real, long-lasting benefits start with regular chiropractic care. We help you to battle the every day stresses that you put on your body. Regular chiropractic treatment is low-risk, high-reward. Call my office in Hackensack at (201) 342-611 or e-mail us at
