Chiropractic Phase 2: Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's care. If all a chiropractor did was reduce pain and stop there, the chances of a condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care from a chiropractor even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your chiropractic 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 begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing, with the guidance of your chiropractor.
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 - which is why it is so important you continue seeing your chiropractor! Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your chiropractic care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
