Dr. Nyman provides chiropractic care to people of all ages. Treatment techniques are adjusted to accommodate factors specific to you, based on the nature of your problem, your age, your likes/dislikes and what's worked for you in the past.
There are four different types of chiropractic care available to you.
- 1. Acute Injury Management
- 2. Rehabilitative Care
- 3. Elective Maintenance Care
- 4. Supportive Care
1. Acute Injury Management
This type of care starts immediately after an injury has occurred. It is designed to reduce your pain as quickly as possible, allowing you to sleep more comfortably and keep working if possible. It helps gets you out of a current crisis. Rehabilitation to prevent reinjury is often recommended after the initial acute symptoms have subsided.
2. Rehabilitative Care
This type of care follows after acute injury management. It is also appropriate for long-standing or recurrent conditions. Rehabilitative or corrective care is intended to restore your health to the highest level possible following an injury. Repairing the problem, rather than just patching it, may take longer, but the results are worthwhile.
3. Elective Maintenance Care
This care program is intended to help you keep feeling and functioning at your best week after week and month after month. Recognizing that work, hobbies, chores, sports and stress impose significant demands on our bodies, periodic "tune-ups" can help maintain overall comfort and may prevent painful crises or relapses. Elective maintenance care treatment frequency varies depending on your body's specific needs. The recommended frequency of care may range from appointments every two weeks to every twelve weeks.
4. Supportive Care
This type of care is intended to assist individuals who's problems return constantly when treatment stops. Occasionally, this is necessary following major injuries, for degenerative conditions or for recurrent problems.
