Laying the foundation for total health
In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With treatment, your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are two general phases of chiropractic care . . .
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our Newark chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain.
Phase 2: Restorative Care
This phase can be a continuation of Phase 1. During the restorative phase of your care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. Not all patients are the same and there are several factors that determine healing: Age, Overall health, Occupation, Previous injuries, Diet, Physical condition, etc
Dr. Bafford understands not everybody's goals are the same and takes in consideration every patients desired outcome.
