Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits or two to three visits per week for a time. When a patient is in severe pain, Dr. Corbett will use an ArthroStim Instrument (pictured on the left) to ease the pain with an entirely comfortable procedure. Patients love it!
Acute pain is usually caused by injury. Chronic pain (pain that comes on for no apparent reason) is caused primarily by imbalance, poor posture and/or overuse. There is usually an incident that will precipitate the pain. It could be as simple as picking up a piece of paper or turning over in bed.
Very often, pain relief is felt very quickly.
