Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors can reduce your pain. It is usually the easiest part of a person's care. However, if the treatment stops when the symptoms go away, the chances of it recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid return of the problem, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your previous pain is gone.
During the corrective/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 may be given specific exercises and stretches to help accelerate your healing. You will begin to notice when your body is in the wrong position. These lifetime habits will start to feel uncomfortable and your proper alignment will begin to assert itself as you get back to your daily routines..
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.
