In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care 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 . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our Cornelius chiropractic 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.
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic 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 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
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.
I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr Guinn.

I have been a patient of Dr. Amy Guinn for almost 10 years. I was very skeptical of chiropractors when I finally decided to visit her. She was a patient with me and explained everything in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing chiropractic care.

I have two herniated discs in my lower back. Because of my spinal decompression with Dr. Amy Guinn, I am much better and I don't think I will need back surgery.

I injured my neck snow skiing and came to see Dr. Amy. I cannot believe how she has helped my spin and neck feel. I can move so much more easily and know it is healing. Dr. Amy is the BEST!

Dr. Amy is without a doubt the finest chiropractor I have been to. I have had recurring acute sciatica for over 35 years; Dr. Amy has made me a well and happy person again. She is the GREATEST!!.
