We then offer a care plan designed to give you the best results in the shortest amount of time. Visits are frequent during this period of intensive care. Each visit builds on the ones before, so keep your appointments to get the best results.
When you’re feeling better, you’ll have a decision to make. Will you continue with the care necessary to fully heal the tissues? Or abandon the investment you have made so far?
