What to Expect


You can think of the chiropractic care that we provide at Nelsen Chiropractic & Spinal Decompression, to be very similar to building a house. No, we are not putting walls together, but we do follow a plan. Just like when building, certain things have to take place in order for you to be able to stand tall and see the results you desire.

When you build a house, the foundation has to be in place before any walls begin to form. If this wasn’t the case, the walls would be weak and fall down. And, if you constructed the roof before the walls were ready, you would find yourself in the same problematic situation. These concepts are the same in chiropractic care.

Many people experience pain and other health issues when the foundation their body is damaged; only true health can be achieved when these foundation problems are addressed. Chiropractic care takes an in-depth look at the foundation of your body, or in simple terms your spinal alignment. With care, though, comes a plan that must be followed to ensure your body can repair itself correctly and fully.

There are three main phases of our chiropractic care.

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you are experiencing pain when you come to our office, our first concern is to help you reduce this pain, making you feel better as soon as possible. Depending on your situation and the underlying cause of your pain, we will suggest an appropriate length of treatment.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During corrective care, you can expect your muscles and other tissues to heal completely, preventing further injury and pain. Our goal in this phase is to help your body function normally. You may need chiropractic care and adjustments up to eight times a month depending on the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

When your body has completely healed, and you no longer experience any pain, it’s important to continue your treatment to prevent future problems. This phase of chiropractic care is recommended one to four times months, based on your specific needs.
