What to Expect

Laying the foundation for total health

In some ways, one could say that body work is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, 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 Corte Madera  office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective phase of care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 4-8 times per month for 2-6 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. Sometimes people chose weekly visits to manage a chronic condition.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I had recently been experiencing loss of power and strength on my bike and was recommended to Chappy Wood, D.C. by other cyclists. I had been to other doctors but they were unable to fix my particular problem. He was able to target my problem areas using the cold laser treatment. After every visit I feel I have really addressed the problems I have come in for, and I would highly recommend him if you’re not getting results with other forms of treatment."

  • "Dr. Chappy Wood, D.C. has been an essential part of my training and recovery process as a professional cyclist. Training here in Marin is hard on my body, and he is able to fix all my nagging problems that cycling has caused on my body. Being a cyclist himself has really helped him to understand my specific needs. If you are a cyclist with any type of injury or any problem or pain associated with cycling then he is the man to see."
