“Each and every body has the innate ability to heal itself.” - Dr. Ohira, D.C.
Our job as Aiea and Honolulu chiropractors is to help your body do what it knows how to do to feel better but has temporarily forgotten. In difficult or chronic cases, we look beyond the obvious causes to unearth what hidden factors might be contributing to your suffering.
If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better. Typically our patients see some relief after just one treatment, and their pain can usually be effectively managed after just 3-4 treatments. However, if your pain has been ongoing for more than 3 months, or if your condition is a bit more severe, it is typical to need care 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During this treatment, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. It is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
This treatment allows your body to heal completely, 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 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
