Choosing The Right Type Of Care For You

chiropractic care after car accident

Choosing the type of care that fits your needs at this point in your life is one of the most important decisions  you can make. Your health is your responsibility and I am excited to serve you however you see fit.  

My main goal is to help you to make educated choices in regard to the different types of health care available in  the office. There are three types of care:  

  • Do Nothing Right Now  
  • Relief/Band-Aid Care  
  • Life Enhancement/Corrective Care  
  1. Do Nothing Right Now: Although “Do Nothing At All Now Care” reflects a “save it for a rainy day” attitude, most people understand  that the problem will most likely get worse with time. Maybe the symptoms will go away, but the underlying  problem still needs to be addressed. I trust that you received important information about your body and your  health for future decisions.
  2. Relief/Band-Aid Care: This type of care is designed for people who want to focus only on relieving immediate symptoms. This is  similar to taking an aspirin for low back pain. The pain may temporarily go away but it does nothing to address  the underlying cause. Ignoring the cause often leads to more serious problems. In the same way, pressure on the spine and the nervous system can alter physical and chemical structures, possibly leading to dysfunction and degeneration of the soft tissue, nerves, muscles, ligaments, discs and bone. The problem will most likely return again and again, often becoming worse. I am glad to address relief for your immediate symptoms and I will be here for you if you choose to later address and correct the underlying problems.
  3. Life Enhancement/Corrective Care: Life Enhancement/Corrective Care is what Chiropractic is really all about. This care helps you get the most out of your body for the rest of your life. It goes beyond providing immediate relief and addresses the underlying cause of your problem. Correcting vertebral subluxations removes the interference in your spine and allows the nervous system to function properly, thus realizing the highest level of health. This level of care is designed to bring about stabilization and healing.  

This process takes Time, Repetition, and Energy. Once your nervous system has started the healing process and functions closer to 100%, it pays you back many times over. You may then develop a stronger immune system,  higher energy levels, better sleep patterns, clearer mental focus, and a higher quality of Life.  

My goal is to give you the information and support to make an informed decision about your health care.  The choice is yours.

Dr. Gloria is the absolute best! I came in with a lot of back pain. The pain also went to my hips, knees and feet. She recommended spinal decompression. I am 100% pain free and my mobility & flexibility are back to great. When I came in all I expected was some relief from pain. I got more than that….pain is gone.
