Overview of Chiropractic Care

Neuromusculoskeletal complaints is the top reason people seek the care of an El Paso chiropractor. These complaints include back pain, neck pain, joint pain in the arms and legs, and headaches. Over time, if these conditions are not treated, they take a toll on the nervous system, creating chronic pain and lowering a person’s quality of life. 

We at Southwest Chiropractic practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to wellness. After your initial patient examination, our team will provide a diagnosis and begin treatment. This treatment typically involves therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, nutritional counseling, dietary help, and lifestyle and wellness counseling.

Will Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt?

New chiropractic patients may be concerned that an initial chiropractor visit will be painful. While there is a chance there may be slight discomfort if problem areas are sensitive, the pain will most likely be brief and improve over time with consistent treatment. Throughout your treatment at Southwest Chiropractors in El Paso, you will learn how to manage and maintain your wellness with lifestyle changes at home, which will most likely help lower your discomfort with chiropractic visits throughout the treatment course. 

Chiropractic Phases of Care

Your initial consultation will include discussing your health-related conditions, concerns, treatment options, and how Southwest Chiropractors can help you meet your goals. Treatment is categorized into three phases of care:

  1. Relief Care: If you are experiencing pain when initiating services, the first goal is to reduce the pain level to help you feel better. It is essential to understand that a variety of factors, such as the specific injury, age, and other health concerns, to name a few, contribute to your body’s response and the length of treatment. Depending on your individual needs and severity level, it is common to need 2-3 adjustments per week, spanning from 4-12 weeks. 
  2. Corrective Care: Muscles and other tissues heal to help prevent further injury during the corrective care phase. A patient typically needs 4-8 chiropractor visits per month for 6-12 months during the corrective care phase, depending on the severity of the concern and how your body recovers and repairs during this phase.
  3. Wellness Care: After your body has healed from completing the first two phases, it is essential to return for periodic adjustments to maintain your progress and well-being. Based on your lifestyle, goals, and other factors, a quick check-in 1-4 times per month is typically scheduled for chiropractor visits during this final phase.
