Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's care. If the chiropractor only reduces the pain without proper treatment, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. It is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone to prevent a rapid recurrence.
During the correction and restorative phase of care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as during the first phase. Depending on your circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches to help accelerate healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have occasional, mild flare-ups in your symptoms, as this is a normal part of recovery. 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 range from a couple of months to a few years.
