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: Corrective Care

If you are in pain when you come into our Sumter chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you identify the cause of the problem and work quickly to correct it to start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your health condition or pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 2-8 weeks.

Phase 2: Healing/Restorative Care

During the healing phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of healing 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 2-8 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Rehabilitation/Maintaince Care

Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing the severity of your health condition or pain, it is important to maintain the improvements gained, which requires periodic checkups for chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a visit 1-2 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

TESTIMONIALS

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "HEADACHES

    Before coming to Sandhills Clinic, I was having headaches in the upper part of my neck at the base of my skull for about 3 months. The headaches would occur at least once a week, sometimes more. After receiving treatment from Dr. Bradshaw, I have not had a single headache, and the tension in my neck and upper back has also subsided.

  • "FIBROMYLAGIA

    I have suffered with fibromyalgia symptoms for about twenty years! During that time I tried to learn how to deal with debilitating muscle spasms in my back and shoulders. I thought I was going to have to live like this the rest of my life. Medically I was given prescription drugs that didn’t help. I had visited other chiropractors, but nothing help. A client of mine recommended that I see Dr. Bradshaw, because he looks for and treats the cause of the problem. I was willing to try anything! After my first adjustment I noticed significant reduction in my muscle spasms. It wasn’t long until I was sleeping better and noticing that I had more energy.

  • "IRRITABLE BOWELS

    For years I had suffered with irritable bowels. If you are or ever have suffered from this you understand what it is like. Since starting chiropractic care with Dr. Bradshaw, I have not experienced these symptoms and enjoy being regular!

  • "HIP PAIN & DECREASED ENERGY

    I had suffered for five months with pain in my right hip and leg. The pain was so severe that I literally had to use my hands to lift my leg in and out of my vehicle. I had previously seen four medical doctors, had two M.R.I.s, and was prescribed many different pain medications, none of which worked! No one could find the cause of my problem. After being thoroughly evaluated by Dr. Bradshaw he found my problem. The results have been great! I am pain free! I also have had so much more energy than I have had in years! Dr. Bradshaw and the staff have treated me with respect and professionalism. What more can I say? It’s a great clinic!
