What to Expect

Laying the foundation

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. Your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .

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 4-12 weeks.

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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""Quick appointments, excellent front desk service, and Dr. Parks was outstanding! He explained everything and it was a nice surprise to hear he doesn't do x-rays , additional testing unless necessary. Most other places automatically do those things and just run up your bill- whether they are needed or not! Not here.. you get only what you actually need... Which for me was an excellent chiropractic experience.""
  • "" I was struggling with severe low back pain that was radiating down my leg. I was waking up in pain and advised by my provider to get injections to help with the pain. I came to Dr. Nick and now I’m walking around with days that are virtually pain free! I didn’t have to get Injections! If you are in pain, don’t wait. Make an appointment with Dr. Nick! He’s the best!!! Thank you Dr. Nick for helping me feel better!!""

  • ""The Doctors have always taken great care of me and my family. I had a major accident years ago and Dr Krause and Parks have been there all along while I have rebuilt my health. Without Chiropractic First I don’t know how I would have been able to get through it.""

  • ""Dr. Chris Hartley was able to help adjust me and offer other assistance as to what other treatment is necessary for me. Taking time to talk to me about what was hurting and understanding my needs. This is why I continue to see Dr. Chris and refer friends, family to your office. THANK YOU""

  • ""My back pain was why I started with chiropractic care. I had shots and pills before and didn't want them anymore. I couldn't ride in the car even a little ways let alone on a trip to see my grandkids. I gave up gardening because I couldn't bend.

    The whole office is so friendly you make friends instantly. My overall health has changed because not only is my back great, I can ride 3 hours without stopping. I'm so happy because I don't hurt. I think my whole attitude is better. Thank you!""
