In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care for maximum correction, even though your symptoms may be gone.
During the correction / rehabilitative phase of your care, you may not receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, you will begin doing supervised exercises and stretches in the office and 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. 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.
