Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. Unfortunately, if treatment is concluded when symptoms resolve or are reduced, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to limit the likelihood of a recurrence of symptoms, it is often necessary to continue receiving care 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 first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you will likely receive specific exercises and stretches for you to perform in the office and 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, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
