Chiropractic Care primarily focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system and the effects of these disorders on your general health and well being. Chiropractic Physicians, referred to as DC's (Doctor's of Chiropractic), practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care, providing a holistic overview that includes a patient examination, diagnosis, treatment and follow up. In addition to our expertise on spinal manipulation or adjustments and alignments, we have broad diagnostic skills, and are trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional protocols, dietary guidelines and lifestyle counseling.
Dr. Giacobbe practices holistically, working with you so that your body goes through the proper phases of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of our chiropractic care approach:
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better.
Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for
Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more
completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for
6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
