What To expect: Chiropractic
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: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come into our Bloomington 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 which 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/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.
What to expect: Functional Medicine
Finding the root cause of illness
When dealing with chronic illness it is necessary to have a plan.
Fill out the application for functional medicine. It is very detailed. After the doctor reviews your history either the doctor or one of the health coaches will contact you with any further questions they may have.
We should have enough information at this time to have an in person consultation at our office or a video consultation. After the consultation the doctor will know the tests that need to be run. Almost every patient needs three tests at least. These are:
- Comprehensive stool test ( since health begins in the gut)
- Food allergy test (Dietary antigen test) To discover foods that are generating inflammation.
- Organic Acids test (to evaluate metabolic pathways)
In addition, Other tests may be ordered depending on results of tests.
After the initial tests are evaluated, an individual program is developed for you. This consists of pharmaceutical grade supplements, dietary and lifestyle recommendations. Then a health coach helps you to implement the program.
Since we only accept a limited number of patients, you will get the dedicated personal attention necessary to help patients with chronic problems. You will be able to securely text your doctor or health coach for a quick answer at any time or have an more in depth phone conversation if needed. Welcome to true functional medicine care tailored individually for you by a doctor who takes a functional, holistic approach to your health.
We will immediately start changing your diet before the lab tests come back. After the lab tests are back we can finely tune your diet based on lab tests. For maximum results your pharmaceutical grade supplement are matched to you lab work.
All cases are fee based. There is one fee that covers everything. The one fee covers:
- Doctors fee
- Health coach fee
- Lab tests
- Nutritional supplementation
- Any additional lab tests
This fee is determined after the consultation.
If you are ready to conquer your health problem give us a call at 309 663-2423 or fill out the new patient application.
There are answers to your chronic health problems.
Our goal at Hermann Wellness is to allow everyone to experience the benefits of chiropractic care and adjustments. For patients who have little or no chiropractic insurance coverage, we can work with you to arrange a flexible payment program that fits your budget. If you have no insurance or if your insurance does not have any chiropractic benefits, there are still ways for you to receive the pain relief and chiropractic care that you need. Many patients choose to pay directly for their visits with the chiropractor, especially as they discover that chiropractic care is actually extremely cost-effective and affordable. For these patients, chiropractic care is often cheaper and more effective than alternative pain treatments such as pain medications or invasive surgery.
Our focus at Hermann Wellness is to actively help you and your family in taking responsibility for your total health, wellness, and disease management. Our chiropractor will assist and guide you as you take the time to care for some of the most important people in your world: you and your family. In an effort to make living the wellness lifestyle as easy and affordable as possible, we can create a customized family chiropractic plan that is specific to you and your family.
