Acute Care

Acute care is any condition that is not life threatening but needs immediate assistance.  Acute care programs are usually covered under insurance and help get your life back as quickly as possible.


Common Causes:

Sports injuries, school teams or weekend warrior adventures

Common sprains and strains that come from working around the house or on the job.

Waking up with pain and discomfort in back, neck or extremities


Your Choices:

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care.

However, other choices include:

• Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)

• Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)

• Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)

• Medicine (Numbs the body.)

• Surgery (The most serious last resort.)


The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return. Acute care programs are designed to get you out of pain in the least amount of time and the least amount of money.

Frequently asked questions?

• Isn’t some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.


• What about muscle relaxers?

First, chiropractors don’t dispense drugs. We rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.


• How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if the body is working correctly. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments are designed to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
