We offer different Care Programs depending on your goals.
Get patched up and address a very immediate need
Active Care is for people whose pain, injury or other concerns are impacting them on an almost daily basis. Patients often experience a significant resolution of physical pain symptoms by the end of their Active Care plan. They also tend to notice increased range of motion and ease in movement. Additionally, they often report some improvement in sleep and, energy levels, and improvements in mood! Many people start with an Active Care plan before moving on to Foundational Care.
Address the deeper problems that are causing your symptoms
Foundational Care will address the underlying causes of your pain or discomfort. By addressing these concerns on deeper levels, you will be able to respond more effectively to physical, mental and emotional stress. People who want to prevent problems from recurring or who want to assure healthy aging are often in Foundational Care plans. Patients in the Foundational Care plan report more pronounced improvements in pain and injuries. They also report better sleep, improvements in their focus, digestion, mood, anxiety and immune health. It also helps with the speed of recovery and sets them up for fewer concerns down the road.
Increase your mind, body and spirit’s ability to adapt to the world around you
Adaptive care is for people who are looking to improve their ability to adapt and respond to the stresses and challenges of the world. They want to be better able to roll with the ups and downs of life, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In earlier stages of healing they started seeing major improvements in their mental and emotional life. Now they want to find out what else is possible. They do not have a lot of pain, but when they do experience injury, they heal much faster than they used to. People who have a history of working with chiropractors, or body workers or have done a lot of yoga or meditation may start in Adaptive Care. However, most people find they need a round of Active or Foundational Care before they can move into Adaptive Care.
Enhance your body’s ability to experience health, creativity and vitality
Transformational Care is for people who are looking to make lasting changes in their health and also in their life. In addition to decreased physical pain, increased mental and emotional strength and improved immune function, people in the Transformational Care Program report improvement in their relationships with themselves and others. They get clearer on who they are in the world and how their body and mind function together to create their experience of life. They are looking for a deeper and clearer understanding of their world and use chiropractic to help make that happen.
How will I know which one is right for me?
Your Care level will be determined in large part by your Adaptability Score. On your first visit the doctors will take a history and do an exam. They will then analyze those findings and come up with your Adaptability Score. On your second visit, they will present you with your Score, let you know how they arrived at it and tell you what level of care corresponds with your Score. Over time, they will update your Score and move you through the care plans depending on your goals.
What if I just want my pain go away?Structural Active care is for you! We can address your pain. BGI Chiropractic often produces results very quickly.
When are you going to give me exercises?Unlike physical therapy, which tends to give you exercises to do as part of a routine; we will be giving you very targeted exercises to help address specific issues if they are not resolved completely during your adjustment. This means that you rarely will do the same exercises for more than a week. And if you are responding very well to your adjustments or if we need to be really targeted in how we help you heal, you might not have any “homework.” But as soon as there is something for you to do, we will tell you.
