What to Expect

Laying the Foundation for Total Health

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 two to three times per week for four to 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 four to eight times per month for six to 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 one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

  • "Running Again:
    Chronic knee and back problems kept me from participating in sports. I met Dr. Herb at FBC and got to know him there. When I described my problems, he invited me to his office. After seeing Dr. Herb, he quickly found that my problem was a misaligned foot. After aligning my foot a few times, my knee and back pain went away. I began playing basketball again and finished Grandma’s Marathon the next 3 years! I still run nearly every day with no pain."

  • "Major Relief:
    What originally brought me into this office was back and shoulder pain. It was getting difficult to do anything at work. People were saying I looked like a 50 year old in an 18 year old’s body. My mother told me to try out Rich Prairie Chiropractic and I thought I would try it. I have noticed major relief in my back and shoulders. I hope to be able to stay feeling young with ongoing chiropractic care. Herb is the best chiropractor I have ever been to."

  • "Constant Pain:
    I lost all strength in my right leg. I had constant radiating groin pain. It affected life down to taking a shower or walking around the house. Dr. Herb handed me his card while I was working at Red’s Auto. What pushed me to make the call was when I lost my job. My life changed because of my experience at this office because I am no longer in constant pain, I am able to take steps without almost collapsing. That made it the best experience ice witnessed so far. My outlook on everything is more positive. I’m hoping to go back to my work-a-holic ways. I know what I’m capable of. Every appointment literally is getting me one step closer to full recovery. This is the first doctor I’ve ever been excited to see. I feel the difference after every session and that makes me very happy."
