General Chiropractic Care
At Century Center Chiropractic, we approach your care with careful planning. We believe that a proper plan has to be followed to ensure that your body will be strong and fully functional.
At your first visit, we will perform a thorough exam, often including X rays, to see where your problems lie. This allows our chiropractor to create a custom treatment plan that will address your specific health-related problem. Often we will discuss more than just your back or neck pain, as many health concerns are connected to spinal health.
The actual treatment process involves three stages. The first step is what our Atlanta chiropractor likes to call "Relief Care." Most of our patients come to our clinic when they are in pain. Our first goal is to help reduce that pain. Most patients need to come two to three times a week for four to twelve weeks during this stage.
Once the first phase is set we move to phase two, which is Corrective or Restorative Care. This phase gives the muscles and other tissue the time they need to heal completely, so you can protect yourself from future injury. Most people need to visit the chiropractor four to eight times per month for six to 24 months during this stage.
The final stage is what we call "Wellness Care." Once the body has fully healed, our patients benefit from periodic adjustments to help avoid future injuries. One to four visits per month, depending on your lifestyle and your goals, will help you maintain your results and avoid future injury.
Once a deep level of healing and strength has been established in the body, the client enters a phase of wellness treatment and maintenance care. These visits are less frequent and more about fine-tuning the body’s state of healing and ensuring proper functioning. Frequency can be 1 to 4 times per month depending on the individual.
