Pain relief versus Corrective care

Pain relief versus Corrective care

The difference between corrective care and pain relief care is the difference between optimal health and merely applying a band-aid to cover the symptoms.


Although chiropractic is effective in providing patch-up or pain relief treatment, we have found correcting the spine offers long term benefits for decades to come. This is why our office specialises in Corrective Chiropractic care. Like all health care fields there are many different types of chiropractic care. Most people associate chiropractic care with back pain and symptom relief. Relief care is designed to do just what it sounds like; decrease pain. Many chiropractors are very good at doing this, leaving their patient to feel gratitude for the short time the pain has been eased only to find themselves once again suffering in pain. Now the patient will usually return to the wonderful doctor who relieved their pain last time and again will be very appreciative for the care given. Although all chiropractors are able to relieve symptoms, the doctors at First American Chiro will search for the true cause of any health condition and design a specific plan of action for each patient.


Corrective care

Corrective care is a completely different approach to achieving and maintaining optimal health. A true corrective care chiropractor will evaluate the Central Nervous System (CNS) completely. Corrective care evaluates the person for not only trauma and pathology but more importantly for function. Since our CNS controls every single one of our cells, tissues and organs we need it to function as close to 100% as possible. A corrective care chiropractor will evaluate the curves of the spine. When we see a patient for the first time at First American Chiro we always let them know there are two basic forms of chiropractic care. There is pain relief care, which is about pain control, and there is corrective care, which is working on the underlying structural abnormalities (that are causing the pain) to make a more permanent change.


The true advantage of corrective care is the possibility to never having to rely on medication to manage illness. Corrective care will build a healthy body and immune system. The education process at First American Chiro will teach you and your family how to achieve the highest level of health.
