What to Expect

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 Saratoga Springs 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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I endorse Dr. Gabay to be among the best in the medical community. Being a member of the 2010 Olympic bobsled team I received treatment from hundreds of chiropractors over my athletic career. I believe Dr. Gabay is among the best with his unique blending of knowledge and treatment styles. Dr Gabay is the type of doctor that sets his goals to treat the underlying problem, not just treat the symptoms that it creates. His friendly personality and treatment philosophy have inspired me to gear my academics toward the field of chiropractic medicine."

  • "Dr Gabay has helped me more than once, go from extreme pain, to pain free. I first went to him with very bad sciatic pain. I couldn't sit in a chair, any chair. After a few visits, I all of a sudden realized that the pain was gone. I kept going for quite a while until things were really 'straightened out'. I would recommend him to anyone (and have) who needs a chiropractor. When I first went, I had never been to a chiropractor, and of course had heard lots of 'horror stories'. I now know that there really are good chiropractors, who can help relieve pain WITHOUT drugs.... and Dr. David Gabay is one, for sure!"
