Phase 2: Corrective/Restorative Care
During the corrective care phase muscles and other tissues are allowed to heal more completely, thereby helping prevent future injury. During the correction/restorative phase you may begin doing exercises and stretches 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.
Phase 3: Wellness Care
Once your body has fully healed a quick visit to the chiropractor on an as needed basis will help to maintain a pain-free life.
Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, continued chiropractic care helps to promote a healthy musculoskeletal system.
When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through. Your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
