What is Network Care?
Network Care utilizes Network Spinal Analysis (NSA). NSA is a system of assessing and contributing to spinal and neural integrity, as well as health and wellness. Practitioners employ gentle force applications to the spine assisting the body's self-regulation of tension in the neurological system. The body naturally develops strategies for dissipation of stored tension and energy, thus enhancing self-regulation of tension and spinal interference.
What do I need to bring?
In order to be fully prepared on your first visit to Wellness Rhythms, fill out your health history forms which can be found here. Additionally, we may ask you to provide your previous medical or surgical history. Also, if you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports and a list of medication.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, Dr. Michelle will discuss a treatment plan for you. If you are interested in getting an initial health consultation, please schedule ahead of time through our online booking platform.
What should I wear to my appointment?
Loose clothing is best on your top half. Consider shorts, yoga pants, leggings, or sweat pants for your bottom half. Anything easy to move into will be okay. If you are coming from work, we recommend bringing a change of clothes if your work clothes aren’t ideal for a chiropractic appointment. You will remove your shoes in the waiting room prior to getting adjusted. We no longer require face coverings for any individual who is fully vaccinated. Still, not sure what to wear? Check out this blog on a list of what to wear and not wear to your first network spinal adjustment.
How do I make an appointment?
You can always make an appointment in the office with our front desk receptionist. Alternatively use the quick and easy online booking platform. Here you can schedule recurring adjustments and even reschedule or cancel existing adjustments.
If you have questions or any issues scheduling appointments online, then please feel free to call or text us at (303) 722-1104.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, Network Spinal Chiropractors can assess and treat without referral by a doctor.
"A Retrospective Assessment of Network Care Using a Survey of Self-Health Related Health, Wellness and Quality of Life"
Learn more about Network Spinal Analysis by reading through this study of Network Patient's Self-Reported Outcomes. Conducted within the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology, College of Medicine, and Department of Sociology, University of California, Irvine, California 92697-1275.
There are two distinct models: The Biomedical model which considers symptoms of a person and his laboratory test results to assess his/her condition or disease. And the Holistic or Wellness model considers the person, his extent of function, his perceptions, and his overall quality of life.
Some studies have been done in various professions. Members of the Association for Network Care have participated in a study conducted by researchers within the University of California, Irvine, College of Medicine. One objective of this study was to develop a patient-reported questionnaire to evaluate health and well-being through a wide range of Biomedical and Wellness indicators incorporating both models. This survey bridges the Biomedical and Wellness assessments. The study evaluated a population of over 2,800 patients under Network Care in the U.S. and abroad. It represents the largest study to date assessing such a wide range of patient-reported health and wellness benefits of any population. Seventy-six percent (76%) of the patients studied reported improved combined wellness changes in all cayrhptord assessed.
An increasing percentage of patients reported progressively greater improvements in the areas assessed as a function of the duration of car; that is, in the population studied, there was no “ceiling” to the results over time for the health and wellness categories investigated. The benefits reported among patient respondents were evident from those as recent as 1-3 for as long as 3 plus years. These results have led investigators to conclude that “within the boundaries of this study design, these findings provide substantial evidence that Network Care should be included among those practices with established health benefits.”
The following categories with examples from each section, all showed statistical and clinically significant benefits:
Improved Physical State relative to:
Less physical pain
