Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Corrective care focus on the underlying structural abnormalities that are causing the pain. Most Chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms 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 are gone and fix what is fixable and stabilize the rest so the pain does not come back.
During the corrective care phase of your care, you will not have to receive treatments 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 centre or 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. Corrective care can aid in building a healthy body by slowing down mechanical decay and help you function at an optimal level to maximize overall health and quality of life. The length of corrective care depends on your overall health and the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it.
