Teaming Up for Optimal Health
When we team up with our patients, we are working towards MAXIMUM health (not mimimum health). In this phase we focus on increasing stability and strength so that you get complete recovery not just a "patch-up". If its worth doing. . . do it right! 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. This is difficult though because your greatest motivator, PAIN, is 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.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups in your symptoms on occasion. This roller coaster is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur for many reasons 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 one to six months. We customize treatment to each individual. We don't accept everyone as patients, but those people we do accept as patients, we are very certain we are able to help - ALOT!
