"Dr. Saracina saved my vacation. She worked me in within an hour, spent over an hour evaluating and treating my severe lower back pain."

Short Term Chiropractic Care

Short term care the focus of treatment is on alleviating your pain. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, the length of care will vary. Mild pain often resolves in six to eight visits. When working with a patient who has more severe pain, their pain decreases in its frequency and severity, often over the course of twelve to eighteen visits. With short term care we will release you from care when your pain has resolved or stabilized. If you have a flair up you can always give us a call and we will get you back on track.

Long Term Care

Long term care is what some patients opt for when their pain has resolved or stabilized. Maintenance, Supportive, and Wellness care are all terms that are used to describe this type of care. Research has shown that individuals who are treated with chiropractic care every four to six weeks have slower rates of degenerative disc disease, and their risk of flair ups is lessened. If they do have a flair up they often respond to care quicker with a fraction of the visits needed to resolve their pain in the first place. At Atlantic Chiropractic you will never be pressured into long term care. The choice is always yours.
