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, you will receive less frequent adjustments, depending on your particular circumstances this may be once a week or once every other week, at this time Dr. Sharp may also recommend that you begin doing exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-up in your symptoms. This is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. At this point it is also a good idea to continue to take it easy, we tend to overdo things once the pain disipates to catch up on all we may have been avoiding doing because of the pain. Try to refrain a little longer and I promise we will get you back to your normal routine. 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 a few months.
