Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Once your condition has stabilizied, you enter the second phase of care, where the objective is to correct any underlying injury or cause of discomfort, strengthenen the muscles, and improve neuromusculoskeletal function. 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. If you end your care before fully healing the muscles and soft tissues, you can invite a relapse.  This is a mistake many people make, and it sets them up for recurring health issues.  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, 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. Care will also be supplemented by recommendations on nutritional  and modifications of  daily activities. These recommendations will assist you in achieving maximum recovery from your specific condition.  It is important to remember that many of the conditions for which people seek care have developed over many years; therefore correcting these problems is a true rehabilitative process.  It helps to understand that it takes time correct these conditons.

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. It is important 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 weeks to a month.
