Phase 2: Correction Phase
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 recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
During the correction/restorative phase of your care depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing range of motion exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have flare-ups with your symptoms. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body is doing a lot of healing during this phase. Depending on the severity of your condition(s) and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
