What to Expect

Laying the Foundation for Total Health

Chiropractic care is like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly. When building a house, if you tried to put up your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually collapse. If you tried to put on your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. The same is true for your body. 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 office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Depending on the severity of your problem, it is typical to need care two to three times per week for four to 12 weeks.

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care four to eight times per month for six to 24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor one to four times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

  • "My original problem was lower back pain which affected my ability to complete normal daily task. I often experienced difficulty walking and bending. Although, I visited other chiropractic offices in previous years, Dr. Stidwell was able to provide more information regarding my condition. This has given me very good reason to continue coming to Copiah Family Wellness and Chiropractic Center. My life has changed now with more information regarding my condition. I have now been able to be more active without limitation or fear of hurting my back or being in terrible pain. I have hope for only having to have minimal or less frequent visits but also become more knowledgeable and continue to come to Copiah Family Wellness for spinal adjustments."

  • "My right arm, upper and lower back were in constant pain. I could not
    reach behind me or lift an objects of minimum weight without it hurting. My
    grip in my right hand was weak. It was hard to hold even a broom without
    hurting. I could not bend down to pick up anything or even get down on both
    knees to pray. I had to go down on my left knee only. After being in so
    much pain even after going to physical therapy at another facility, I
    decided to go in and talk with Dr. Stidwell and she informed me of the
    differences between the two processes of therapy and now my body has
    experienced the difference. I’m better!! I had spoken with Dr. Stidwell
    months before actually going in. I am now able to go down on both knees. I
    can lift objects much better with my right hand now. I’m able to move the
    arm back and forward with minimum pain. I’ve learned how to properly bend
    and lift and how to use all the muscles to aid me in day to day activities."

  • "When I first started coming, I had neck stiffness where I could only turn my neck to the left and hardly none to the right. I decided to come to the office after initially talking with Dr. Stidwell prior and her prompting me to schedule a visit, therefore, I did. My experience here has been life changing because it made a difference instantly. My hope for my health with ongoing chiropractic care is remaining pain free."
    Veronica Eason
  • "My original problem was concerns about my back and having muscle spasms. I also have had a pulsating sound in my ear. The problem was affecting me by causing discomfort. I came to this office when I had a consultation done and wanted to further discuss my issues. I think that my life is changing because I am getting good results from my experiences her at this office. My hope for health with ongoing chiropractic care is to have a healthier and happier life knowing that I can feel great."

  • "I originally came into Dr. Stidwell office because my back, hip, and shoulders hurt when I try to do housework. I haven’t had a day without pain in ten years. I had a talk with Dr. Stidwell and I decided to come and get checked out. Chiropractic has changed my life for the better. I had my first day without pain in a long time and it felt good. My hope for my health with ongoing chiropractic care is to have a life without pain."

  • "I came to Dr. Stidwell's office because I was having shoulder pain while recovering from rotator cuff surgery. I was unable to move my arm up above my head or behind my back without being in extreme pain. Dr. Stidwell did a laser treatment on my shoulder and immediately I was able to lift my arm without pain. Since being treated I have been able to do daily activities, I felt calm and at ease with dealing with the pain, recovery, and overall wellness. Eventually I hope to be off of existing medications and learn how to achieve a healthy lifestyle."
