Teaming Up for Optimal Health!
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, 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 though your symptoms are gone.
During the corrective care phase, muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent injury. In this phase, we go beyond patch care and continue the 3-4 times per week for a total of 12 weeks, depending on your overall health and the severity of your problem. With this care, we incorporate various exercises and therapies to get the stronger, more corrective changes to your spine and posture. It is in this phase where we train your body to hold and build supporting strength to the adjustments. This is what will make lasting change to correct your problem.
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 and it’s learning a way to function that it hasn’t known in some time. So soreness could be present, depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it.
