Restored Health Chiropractic Care
WELCOME NEW PATIENTS!
We understand that arriving at a chiropractic office for the first time can be nerve-wracking. If you’ve never experienced chiropractic care before, you may not know what to expect when you come to our Grand Rapids chiropractic office for the first time. Filling out paperwork, learning new faces, and getting to know your way around the office can be an overwhelming experience.
That’s why at Restored Health Chiropractic Center our aim is to remove any unnecessary stress or tension and make you feel comfortable during your visit with our chiropractor.
Here is where you will be able to take care of the items necessary for your chiropractic visit prior to arriving, in the comfort of your own home. If you have any questions at any time, please don’t hesitate to contact our Grand Rapids chiropractic office at 616-458-2348!
What to expect at your appointments
Laying the foundation for whole body healing:
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 might 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, then 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: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our Grand Rapids chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition that is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
Phase 2: Corrective and Restorative Care
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective 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 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
If you’re ready to start your whole body healing we’d love to meet you!
Who We Are
Restored Health Chiropractic Mission & Vision
To provide the best individualized care to every patient, no matter where they are in their health journey.
Why the Unalome?
Traditionally, the unalome symbolizes a person's journey through life or to enlightenment. We wanted to build off of this and use it in our logo to describe a person's journey to health.
When we started the rebranding process, we envisioned an office that offered chiropractic care to individuals in every stage of their health journey. Maybe we are the first taste of alternative healthcare for somebody struggling with a chronic issue who has not been able to get answers using other routes. Or maybe we are the new chiropractic home to somebody who has seen a chiropractor for 20+ years and they are wanting to explore other therapies we offer. We want to care for everybody, no matter where you may be in the sometimes messy and not-so-straightforward journey to better health. We would be honored to serve as a part of your particular health journey.
“Wonderful chiropractor (Eric) and massage therapist (Alicia). They always listen to me. I had had some surgery and had to do modifications with my adjustments and massage, and they were more than willing to do whatever I needed. Excellent chiropractic office!”
