MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE
Your body is the most complex and finely tuned machine ever created. It can adapt and survive in a variety of situations. It can be trained to lift heavy things or run long distance. All of these examples require movement. Dr. Favro's approach to care is evaluating each person's detailed movement and applying a series of specific treatments to help first, reduce the pain and second, correct the movement. He will work with you to better understand your daily habits and lifestyle so a complete treatment plan can be put togehter.
Phase 1: Relief Care
If you are in pain when you come to our Saratoga Springs office, the first goal is to reduce that pain and get you feeling better as soon as possible. It is typical for a new patient to be seen 2-3 times per week for 3-6 weeks, depending on the severity of the underlying condition.
Phase 2: Corrective CAre
Removing the pain is not good enough. Dr. Favro is concerned with finding the source of the problem and correcting it. This is where corrective care comes in. In this phase you will be shown exercises and stretches to do at home to help accelerate and further your progress.
Phase 3: Maintenance Care
Like any high performing machine, your body requires maintenance. You are constantly in motion. The best way to keep your pain or other symptoms away is periodic treatments. This can mean getting adjusted 1-4 times per month depending on your lifestyle and goals.
