Phase 2: Corrective Care

Phase 2: Corrective Care - Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. The great thing about the chiropractic adjustment is that it does help reduce pain, but its main goal is actually corrective in nature.  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 reduced or 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 in our clinic or at home to help accelerate your healing.  If further expertise in strengthening and/or stabilizing care is needed, we may refer you to physical therapy.

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 weeks to a few months.
