Do I really need to keep my appointments?

If you don't get your treatment as scheduled, you could jeopardize your progress and even slip backward. Often it takes one or two visits to make up for the one you missed, and sometimes another one to take care of the slippage. If you space your treatments too far apart. the slippage is so great that you are simply taking your first treatment over and over again. therefore, it is important to follow through with all levels of your scheduled care.

Levels of Chiropractic Care

Level One

Level Four

  During the first few treatments (usually within the first two to four weeks) our goal is to determine two things. How well you respond to chiropractic care and which of the various available treatment methods produce the best response for you. Once we've reached these goals, we move on to level two.

  Unfortunately, in a small percentage of cases some residual weakness and instability remains. This means without occasional ongoing chiropractic care you may regress. Therefore, you may occasionally need additional treatments to prevent or offset regression. This is called supportive care.
  Here's the good news. In many such cases, ongoing supportive care eventually produces sufficient increased stability to eliminate the need for further supportive care.

Level Two

Level Five

  This level tells how much improvement can be achieved. It's important to achieve the highest level of improvement possible. Therefore, we may need (from time to time) to change the frequency, intensity, and type of treatment in order to obtain optimal progress and to maximize the improvement.
  Level two continues until your condition is totally resolved...or until your condition has reached a plateau. This plateau is known as the "maximum chiropractic improvement level." When this has been achieved, level three begins.

  Some patients reach a reasonable degree of stability but still have residual weakness which pre-dispose them to reinjury. recurrence, relapse, or regression. Such patients are put on pro re nate (p.r.n.) status...which means "treatment as needed." Such patients are advised to return immediately to the doctor's office for evaluation and treatment at the first sign of any relapse, recurrence, or reinjury.

Level Three

  Level three is appropriate for patients who reach the "maximum chiropractic improvement level" before getting their problem(s) totally resolved. Normally, in such cases some additional treatments to strengthen, rehabilitate, and stabilize are indicated.
  The purpose of stabilization treatments is to avoid relapse or regression. However, in the event regression does occur, then level four may be necessary.
