Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's care. However, if all the chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. Therefore, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms.
During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you occasionally have mild flare-ups in your symptoms; this is normal. Flare-ups are bound to occur during this phase because your body has not fully healed. This phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a few years. It all depends on the severity of your injury/condition and how long you have been suffering.
