In some ways, one could say that chiropractic care is a bit like building a house - certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work together correctly. When building a house, if you tried to build your walls before you had a solid foundation, your walls would be weak and eventually may even collapse. If you tried to build your roof before the walls were ready, you would run into the same problem. These concepts apply to your body as well, and chiropractic care addresses many common reasons why people experience pain and other health issues. If something is not right with your body's foundation, than that needs to be addressed before true health can be achieved. With chiropractic care, your body has to go through a particular plan of care in order to repair itself correctly and fully. There are three general phases of chiropractic care . . .
If you are in pain when you come into our Novi chiropractic office, our first objective is to help you reduce pain and start feeling better as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the underlying condition which is causing your pain, it is typical for a patient to need chiropractic care or adjustments 2-3 times per week for 4-12 weeks.
During the corrective phase of chiropractic care, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, which helps prevent further injury or pain. The goal of corrective or restorative chiropractic care is to help bring your body back to 100% functioning. It is typical to need chiropractic care or adjustments about 4-8 times per month for 6-24 months, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem.
Once your body has fully healed and you are no longer experiencing back pain or other pain symptoms, it is important to come in for periodic chiropractic adjustments to avoid further problems in the future. Usually, this phase of chiropractic care only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor 1-4 times per month, based on your lifestyle and goals.

~~I have been a patient of Dr. Paul Stiles for more than three years. When I first came to him I was in constant pain and my daily schedule was defined by my misery. I remember never being able to get comfortable. In an attempt to relieve my pain I would sit on a hard wooden floor and try to just look straight ahead because it hurt so much to move. I could not look down or turn my head without it hurting. When I tried to read I felt sick. I had headaches. I did not sleep well. Pain medication did not help. I was frightened by how badly I felt every day, all day long. I had been seeing another chiropractor at the time and I could not understand why I was not getting better even though I had been treated regularly by this doctor for the past two years.
One day my husband recommended that I go see a different chiropractor. He had driven by Dr. Paul’s office and he suggested that I make an appointment with him. I checked out the Stiles Chiropractic website and I was impressed by the testimonials. On my first appointment Dr. Paul spent so much time with me. I felt encouraged and I believed that he could help me, and he surely did. I started to see improvements right away. I had a lot of ground to cover, but he helped me to get there. He also had me doing exercises to facilitate my healing.
Dr. Paul’s help changed my life dramatically. My health improved greatly and so did my personal life. Within one year of my first visit I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of mine by returning to college. I went on to take and complete 104 credits in just 7 terms and I graduated in June of 2016. I consider this a miracle, given the fact that I was in so much discomfort that I could not even read at all when I first came to see Dr. Paul.
Dr. Paul is also extremely knowledgeable about health and fitness and has given me great advice in those areas too. In addition to feeling better and earning a degree I have lost about 25 pounds since I first came to see him. I am active physically every day. I do yoga about five times a week and walk daily. Partly because of this, I feel 15 years younger than I did when I first came to see him. Also, when I feel pain I understand that something is wrong and I now I know that discomfort does not have to be a way of life. Even though I feel younger, vital and healthy again I still see Dr. Paul regularly to maintain my health. While I no longer live in Novi and have a 60 mile commute to his office, I am still one of his patients. I always look forward to my visits with Dr. Paul. He is always smiling, positive and encouraging.
I will be eternally grateful to him for all that he has done for me. He has changed my life and future forever. I am now in graduate school and I am working on my PhD in Psychology with a specialization in Forensic Psychology. I could not have done this before I met him. With his continued excellent care I expect to have a healthy, successful career and future.
