Teaming Up for Optimal Health
Most doctors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If reduced pain is the parameter to stop care, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to increase your margin for error. By that we mean how much will you need to do wrong in order to trigger your condition again. As you continue receiving care, even though your symptoms are gone, we work to increase that margin.
During the correction / restorative 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. Nutritional changes will be established 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. 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 months to a couple of years.
