Eliminating your symptoms is usually the easy part of chiropractic care, but just getting rid of the pain isn't going to solve the problem. If we stopped after relief care, your symptoms would be back very soon. That’s why our doctors move on to corrective care as soon as your pain is gone, to help your body fully heal and prevent symptoms from recurring.
This phase is less intense than the relief care phase; usually, patients only need to come in for chiropractic services 4-8 times per month (1-2 times per week). As we begin to make more progress, you can start doing exercises and stretches at home or in our office to accelerate your healing process. Every step we take is designed to help you be pain-free for the long haul.
That being said, mild flare-ups of your symptoms during this phase are normal. Your body is still healing. When your body is fully healed, you can expect your symptoms to be gone for the long haul.
Usually the corrective care phase lasts for a few months to a year or two, depending on how severe your symptoms are. Once your body has completely healed, we move into the last phase of care: wellness care.
