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. If you end your care before fully healing muscles and soft tissues, you can invite a relapse.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, visits are less frequent and progress will be less dramatic. During this phase, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing 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 because your body has not fully healed. 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. Keep in mind that the length of your healing journey may differ depending on your consistency of visits. Whatever your choice in frequency of visits may be, we're here to serve and help support you in your decision.
