What to Expect

Laying the foundation for total health

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 . . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are in pain when you come into our Macomb 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.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

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.

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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have been in the need of Chiropractic care since 1988 due to a rear end whip lash accident. Starting in N.J. to Florida to Michigan, Dr. Kent has been the best at keeping my horrendous cervical spine out of pain and moving! He is the greatest!"

  • "After being injured in an automobile accident I was left with severe back, neck, and head pain. I was sent to one doctor after another and none of them seemed to be able to help me. My physician then sent me to Dr. Kent Semlow. I had never been to a Chiropractor before and was very skeptical and nervous about seeing one. After meeting with Dr. Semlow I felt very comfortable about him treating me. I can truly say that I was hooked after my first session! Dr. Semlow has been able to make me feel better then I thought I could."

  • "First, I would like to thank Dr. Semlow and staff for being so patient, kind, and understanding. But most of all they really care. I have been to several Chiropractors in my life, and have found the best results and well-being here at Semlow. My neck and back can be sore, stiff, and hurt to move. After an adjustment I feel like a new man again. I totally trust Dr. Kent. I also believe in Chiropractic care and would recommend it to any and all."
