Setting the groundwork

Your chiropractic journey is like building a house - you need to do things in a particular order for everything to stay strong and work as it should. When constructing a house, if you put up your walls before you set a solid foundation, your walls will eventually come tumbling down and you'll be back at the start. You can say the same for your body. You need to go through a certain process in order to repair yourself correctly and fully. There are three phrases of the chiropractic journey. . .

Phase 1: Relief Care

If you come to our Missoula office with back pain already, Dr. Pete's first goal is to make you feel better. We'll customize your plan to get you the perfect therapy, but typically it takes treatment 2-3 times a week for 4 - 12 weeks to feel better. 

Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care

In the corrective care phase, your muscles and other tissues will be taking time to heal and strengthen, which can help prevent injury. It usually takes 4-8 lower back pain treatments per month for 6 - 12 months, depending on your own personal health and condition, as well as the severity of your problem or auto accident.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully recovered, it is important to come in for regular adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only needs a quick visit to our Missoula back pain chiropractor, based on your lifestyle and goals.

Besides making my neck and back feel better, my legs that normally bounce all over the place at night have been much calmer since doing consistent adjustments with Dr. Pete and adding the occasional massage in before or after an adjustment. I love the atmosphere in the office and the staff are pretty dang amazing too. Debi is great to help with insurance stuff.

I'm a big guy.  My neck and shoulder were killing me.I went to see Dr. Pete.  He fixed me up.I know from experience that most chiropractors don't have the strength to give me a full adjustment.  Dr. Pete got me straightened out right away.  Nice office.



USMC, Vet.

I have known Dr. Pete for several years now. He is a caring and wonderful Chiropractor. When I go for my visits he is warm welcoming and his new front office person Joy is a delight and so helpful. My last series of chiropractic adjustments were amazing. Just with my first adjustment I walked out felling better. If you are thinking about Chiropractic...Think Dr. Pete Chiropractic.
