At your consultation with Dr. Hwang, every detail counts. He deep dives into your medical history, understanding past health challenges, injuries, motor vehicle accidents, surgeries, and even details like ongoing treatment programs.
Initial Correction: Pre and Post
This includes initial NUCCA X-rays before and after the first correction. By analyzing this film allows us to properly detect the slight and measurable misalignment in the upper cervical spine.
Initial Intensive Care: 12-Weeks
In the first 8 to 12 weeks, we’ll schedule visits more frequently . It’s normal to experience some ups and downs during this time, but with proper care and attention, we significantly increase the chances of maintaining the corrections to last longer.
Strengthen, Stability, and Recovery
We plan for less frequent visits, closely monitoring the progress for six (6) to eight (8) months based on the first three (3) months. Spending less time in misaligned posture and more on maintaining a balanced weight distribution can significantly improve the spinal stability. When your spine is maintaining a good position, it prefers to stay aligned. Tissues have adapted well to this healthier position. However, abnormal movements or traumas to the head or neck can cause the spine to become misaligned again. Thus, regular check-ups every three (3) to four (4) months is recommended.
