Most Chiropractors regard the reduction and elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the Chiropractor does is to reduce the symptoms and stops there, the chances of the health challenge recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, it will not be necessary to adjust you as frequently as we did during the first phase of your care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at our office or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This is normal and expected. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body is in an active stage of healing. 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. During this time we will keep track of your progress with regular scheduled progress exams.
