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 . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our Durham 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.
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.
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.

"For me, I have always struggled with physical and mental health. When I decided to start going to Dr. Kruse, I have to admit I was hesitant because I was on prescription medication. After telling Dr. Kruse what medication I was on, I braced myself to get a lecture about natural therapies. There was no lecture or feeling of guilt for being on prescription medication. I have to admit I was in shock. Dr. Kruse is and has always been supportive of my decisions on how to treat my mental health. Through the ups and downs of different medications I decided to ask Dr. Kruse about natural therapies and was excited to hear about the resources he provided for me."
"Dr. Kruse has been essential to my physical and mental health. I was in a car accident a few months ago and was so grateful to be able to just walk in to Dr. Kruse’s office the next day and start treatment. Not only has Dr. Kruse been able to get me back on track after my accident but I have also noticed unbelievable changes in my physical health. I thought friendly (knowing you by your first name) family oriented physicians were part of the past…I am pleased to say Dr. Kruse and his staff have proven me wrong and I am honored to be a patient at Kruse Chiropractic."
