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 Loveland 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

  • "I was in constant pain for years. I started getting adjusted with Gateway Family Chiropractic in Dec. for CRPS (chronic regional pain syndrome). After 4 visits the pain has dramatically reduced and is now at a 2/10 from a 10/10 on a pain scale. Now I come in one a month for maintenance and have no complains!"

On a regular basis here recently I encounter a rib problems where they were pushing on a nerve to where it became hard to breath I couldn't deal sith the symptoms. I called Dr. Hughes for much needed immediate relief. I caught them at the office after hours and explained my situation. They worked on my for about 20 minutes and I left with less side pain & was walking up right again. Gateway is the best would recommend 10 x over sincerely"

  • "I came to this office a year ago with debilitating hip problems. I was so missed up it took about 6 months to get it to hold. After my first appointment, I no longer was needing pain medication. The most amazing part about this office is that Dr. Dave and Dr. Mike really take the time to know what was happening in my body. They recommend much needed supplements that helped in me get my life back. I could not function before I started coming here and will always be grateful for their knowledge and expertise in their field. THANK YOU GATEWAY. Don't forget how amazing the office staff is as well. Best chiropractic office in Northern Colorado. I definitely recommend you guys every day to others who need you!"

  • "Our Infant, Merrick, was placed with ear infection, congestion, and cough. Antibiotics were not helping and made things worse. He began vomiting. We were all exhausted & frustrated. We couldn't find anything that worked! We brought him to Gateway Chiropractic in Loveland. With steady treatments his ear infection and other symptoms went away. He is healthy and now growing without ear infection complications. This was a blessing for our baby and our family! We are so grateful!"
    C. Muth - Loveland, CO
  • "After a thorough and thoughtful review of the x-rays of my back and hips, Dr. Hughes adjusted me from my head to my knees. Yep, my knees! I was able to kneel down on the floor with my kids for the first time in years with no stiffness or achy knees. During the adjustment I felt unhurried and relaxed. I left with more range of motion in my neck, shoulders... & knees. Thank you! I recommend Dr. Hughes as a qualified and caring chiropractor!"
    Richard T. - Loveland, CO
  • "The staff is amazing. The practitioners were more than happy to try and treat my severe neck pain and limited range of motion. I could hardly move my head and upper back 2 weeks ago. After a series of x-rays to I.D. the problem, some other quantitative testing, both chiropractors were able to treat my PROBLEM in addition to diminishing my SYMPTOMS. After 2 weeks, I have full range, hardly any pain, slept better and more energy. I would HIGHLY recommend beginning ANY un-wellness at this clinic prior to MD approach to medication. THANKS FOR MAKING ME BETTER!"

  • "Drs' Mike and David are competent, concerned, and caring chiropractors. I am impressed with the tables they use to administer adjustments. The dropping mechanism makes the adjustment so focused and exact. I feel less pain and have more flexibility and range of motion now than before I began my treatments."
    Diane L. - Berthoud, CO
  • "I have severe arthritis. The pain getting worse & I thought I might need to have a hip replacement. Even after the first adjustment my hip felt better and I could finally sleep all night without waking in pain. Now I have almost no pain most nights and I am walking without limping. I am now doing yoga and Zumba, two activities I ahd stayed away from because my hip pain just wouldn't allow it! I had never gone to a Chiropractor before, now I don't think I will ever stop!"
