Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a patient's care. If all the chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your primary symptoms may be gone.
During the correction/restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the clinic or at home to help compliment your chiropractic care and accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not yet fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition, and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of care may last anywhere from a few weeks to a couple months.
