Teaming Up for Optimal Health
You may be surprised to learn that eliminating symptoms is usually the easiest part of chiropractic care. However, if a chiropractor simply reduce the pain and stops there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is important to follow through on your treatment plan even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the relief phase of care. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the office or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
