Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most chiropractors regard the reduction of pain 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 prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms have decreased.
During this rehabilitative/stabilizing 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 to help accelerate your healing.
Treatment is reduced to one to two times per week during this period.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild occasional symptom flare-ups. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your spine has not fully stabilized.
