Teaming Up for Optimal Healt
The elimination of symptoms is usually the easiest part of a persons care. But unless the "cause" of the problem is corrected, there is always the possibility that the problem will return. In order to prevent a recurrence of symptoms, it may be necessary to continue "corrective care" after your symptoms are gone.
During the corrective phase of care, home-care is important and there is less need for frequent adjustments. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may also need corrective exercises at home to help accelerate your healing.
During corrective care, occasional flare-ups can occur. This happens because the problem hasn't yet been fully corrected, and isn't yet able to adapt to the physical or mental stresses of your daily routine. Don't be discouraged if you have a flare-up in your symptoms on occasion.
Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from the problem, this "corrective" phase of your care may last a few months, or longer.
