Parker Performance Standard Treatment
Our chiropractic office typically fits each patient into one of three phases of care: Relief, Correction, or Wellness. These three phases of care are similar to the Dentistry care model, making it easier to understand.
Get Relief from Parker Performance Clinic
Our chiropractic office treats many patients who have had their lives interrupted by pain or injuries. When patients are suffering from pain our primary goal is to help them manage their pain. We help this group of patients get out and stay out of pain.
The techniques and approaches used in our office have had effective results getting our patients out of pain and back into their daily routine lives. Generally speaking, pain is the last symptom to appear and thankfully it is usually the first symptom to disappear.
In 2009, Consumer Reports rated Chiropractic care as the #1 preferred treatment for low back pain. 59% were highly satisfied with their chiropractic back pain care, while only 34% were highly satisfied with their primary care physician’s back pain care. Whether it’s low back pain or any pain in your spine, it is best to go to a chiropractor that specializes in treating the spine.
This phase of treatment can be compared to getting braces on your teeth. Some patients have just “tweaked” their back and need minor adjustments, there are other patients who need a little more work done on their backs. Similar to visiting an orthodontist, going to the chiropractor requires frequent visits to make sure that progress is well and the spine is adjusting properly ro treatment.
At Parker Performance Clinic we treat many people who have lost vital spines curves. Other patients have abnormalities such as scoliosis. If these problems are not treated they can lead to early degeneration and other horrible effects in later years.
Some individuals don’t think that there is any sort of help or treatment when it comes to bad spinal curves. Luckily this is not the case, at Parker Performance Clinic we use a technique called Pettibon spinal rehab that focuses on restoring proper spinal curves and balancing the soft tissue around the surrounding areas.
The loss of spinal curves or the formation of abnormal curves is not something to ignore because they will not go away on their own. Abnormal curves or lose of curves put pressure on spinal joints that can cause spinal arthritis and decay. Not having normal spinal curves has also been connected to sciatica, tension headaches, heart and lung problems, and lower back pain.
Having a chiropractor check your spine is just as important as getting your blood pressure checked or being screened for cancer. Making regular appointments with your chiropractor ensures your spine is healthy and working properly.
The Road to Wellness
Similar to a checkup with your dentist, this phase allows you to prevent problems before they cause significant problems in your everyday life. As patients follow their personalized wellness plan they are taking a “proactive” approach to their health instead of “reacting” to health problems.
Our office treats many patients who understand the importance of a proactive approach to their health. These patients come in periodically to make sure that their spine is performing at peak performance. If a problem does arise, these patients problems are much easier to fix than patients who do not come in on a regular routine basis.
A good example of treating a problem proactively can be seen with Scoliosis. Scoliosis is more prevalent in females than in males. Symptoms of Scoliosis start to appear in the teenage years. School programs help diagnose Scoliosis, but they don’t offer any ongoing treatment options. Any teenager diagnosed with Scoliosis and not know that they need to have ongoing treatment. The only thing they may notice is that their spine looks funny. As this teenager reaches their 20’s or 30’s they may begin to experience pain and other negative effects from their condition. Although Scoliosis can be fixed, it is a lot harder to fix if a patient does not get help as soon as they are diagnosed.
