Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Many doctors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person’s care. If all that a chiropractor does is reduce the pain, however, 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 if the original symptoms are gone.
During the correction/restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive chiropractic adjustments as often as was required in Phase 1. In certain circumstances, you may even be able to begin doing exercises and stretches to help accelerate healing during this phase.
Although the corrective/restorative phase can be frustrating, don’t be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is perfectly normal. Symptom recurrences are bound to occur during this phase because your body is not completely healed.
Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of care could last anywhere from several months to a couple of years.
