Canyon Road Chiropractic and Massage treats patients with a phase based approach:

Phase 1: Pain Relief 

If you are in pain when you come into their office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, the doctor will recommend a treatment plan based on your individual situation.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury.  Your rate of progress will depend 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 periodically, based on your lifestyle and goals.
