The two most important things to us are your health, and our reputation. In reality these two things are linked together. If our patients do not get results, it is not good for our reputation or for chiropractic. We have built our practice on getting results. It is very important that each and every patient we care for has the maximum chance for the best results.
Chiropractic has a great track record of helping people. But one of the cornerstones to getting such good results is cooperation between the doctor and the patient. Keeping your schedule of appointments is the major responsibility of the patient. The largest cause of less than expected results is failure to follow the recommended appointment schedule.
All healing comes from within each patient. What the chiropractor does is make adjustments to the spine to remove nerve interference caused from subluxations. Subluxations are areas of interference to the nervous system caused by pressure or irritation from spinal bones. In order to correct subluxations a sufficient amount of time and work is needed to make the changes to spinal structures.
When someone has crooked teeth, and they get braces, they need to wear those braces on their teeth continually for up to several years. This may then have to be followed by several years of retainers or night braces. In chiropractic, we do not put little braces on each spinal bone to pull them into position. To make a correction most spines require a series of adjustments to start the process changing spinal structures. These schedules are specifically designed for the spine of each patient. Missing appointments and not following your schedule, greatly reduces your chance for correction of your subluxations.
If your results are as important to you as they are to us, please make every attempt to make every visit you are scheduled for. We consider correcting subluxations to be a very high priority. Missing visits will slow or even stop your progress. After all, you came to us for results. Getting the care you need to correct your subluxations is essential. After all, our reputation, and your health depends on it.
