Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a patient's care. If the chiropractor's treatment merely reduces the pain and stops there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent recurrence of symptoms, it is often necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the corrective/rehab phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as frequent as you did during the first phase of care. However, you will be encouraged to continue the exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate and maintain your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal. Flare-ups often occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. Depending on the severity of your injury/condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last several weeks to several months.
