Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to 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 symptoms are gone. Doing your exercises and stretches both at the center and at home helps accelerate your healing.
At the end of you initial care plan we will do a re-exam and re-x ray review with you to discuss your progress. If everything is on track you will be moved to the next phase of care. 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.
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 2 to 10 months. Remember your body most likely took a lot longer than that to create the abnormal pattern.
