Teaming Up for Optimal Health
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 recommended 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. Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care is different for every patient.
Our philosophy of care usually means we only project care out a few weeks at a time, so we can adapt our plan to match your progress. MRI's or referrals, if needed, are coordinated with your PCP, to see you improve as expected. There is no valid reason to forecast months of care for most problems. Rather, we look at a few weeks span, then constantly reevaluate to see if your resolution is on track. Your back is designed to heal on it's own, through a process called "homeostasis" and our job is just to remove the impediments so it can. We do not believe in huge costs, long projected treatment plans, or life-time calendar-based maintenance care. Our job is to get you better so you don't need us, rather than to make you dependent on a chiropractor for maintenance care. We want a relationship that lasts a life-time, not life-time patients!
