On first visit, patients will receive an initial consultation with one of our case managers. Who will take down your health history and get your chief complaints to relay to Dr. Patrick Goldsworthy or Dr. Aston Goldsworthy. The purpose of this consultation is to learn more about the patient’s condition and determine how our chiropractic care and physical medicine can help the patient.

One of the doctors will then perform a complete physical exam, testing reflexes and flexibility, as well as other standard tests including neurological, orthopedic, postural and physical testing. Depending on the condition, a patient may receive X-rays to determine if there are any structural, positional and/or degenerative changes occurring in their spine or joints.

Once all of these tests are recorded, and the doctors have reviewed health history and goals, they will confer with the patient about the best ways to treat their condition. Designing a treatment plan designed specifically to treat their injury or pain.

The treatment may start the same day as the report of findings should the patient decide to begin care. This treatment may include spinal adjustments, Physiotherapy or soft tissue massages. All of our treatments are flexible and are designed to a patient’s needs.

Most of our Chiropractic Care can be broken into three phases:

  • Relief Care The objective here is to provide relief to any pain the patient is feeling. Core Medical Center in Blue Springs uses their expertise to reduce symptoms and depending on the severity of the problem, it may be typical to require initial care 2-3 times a week for the first 3 months.
  • Corrective/Restorative Care After the initial pain has subsided, corrective care begins. This phase is when muscles and tissues are given time to heal to prevent injury. Patients will be completing exercises at home to ensure that the pain symptoms do not reoccur. Flare-ups are common in this phase because the body hasn’t fully healed yet. Depending on the severity of the condition, it is typical to need care 4-8 times per month for months or even years.
  • Wellness Care This phase is typically after the body has fully healed, and doctors only require you to come in for periodic adjustments to prevent future problems. Visits to the chiropractor during this phase can be one to four times per month.

When Chiropractic is combined with Physiotherapy and medicine they work synergistically, alleviating pain in ways that can not be obtain with one of these therapies alone.

At Core Medical Center in Blue Springs, Missouri we emphasize overall health and wellness. We provide a foundation with exercises to improve spinal correction and skeletal misalignment as well as lifestyle coaching about activities to avoid aggravating those conditions.

All of the chiropractic services we offer aid in the creation of a partnership in our patient’s path to wellness.
