Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's 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 help prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is often necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction / 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 will need to do exercises and stretches 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. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase especially if you do too much bending, twisting or lifting.
