Patient Journey

Achieving full health is like building a house: You need to follow a certain order of steps to be successful. When building a house, you must lay a solid foundation before putting up walls. You must complete your walls before you add the roof.

In the same way, your body needs to take certain steps—in order—to repair itself correctly and fully.

Below are the four phases of holistic care embraced at Tomasetti Chiropractic Care.

Phases of Care

Symptom Relief Phase

If you are in pain when you arrive, our first objective is to help you feel better quickly. We’ll a perform a thorough history and perform a physical exam. With your consent, we will begin addressing acute spasms and inflammation, and begin the spinal alignment process. Depending on the severity of your problem, you may need 2 – 10 visits to move through the Symptom Relief Phase.

Rehabilitative Phase

Here the focus is accelerating your healing and tissue remodeling. Muscles and other connective tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent reinjury. We measure your progress on how well your body is functioning, instead of basing progress on your symptoms. Depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem, you may need 24 – 48 visits to complete this phase.

Stabilization Phase

Now the focus of care moves to supporting the tissues that take more time to heal while also helping the nervous system communicate with all parts of the body. Lifestyle and dietary recommendations may be added to your program. Depending on your health and goals, you may need 18 – 30 visits during this phase.

Wellness Care

Now you continue to build on the investment you have made in your health. You can maintain your healthy lifestyle by coming in for regular chiropractic adjustments, stress reduction, and nutritional assessments. By continuing to focus on your health, you can help avoid future problems and continue living a vibrant life. Many patients only require a routine wellness visit once or twice each month to take advantage of our cutting-edge therapeutic modalities.
