2. Reconstructive Care

Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a persons care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid return to poor health and a recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.

During the reconstructive care phase, you will not have to receive adjustments as often as you did during intial intensive care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate your healing.

Do not be discouraged if you have mild flare-ups 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 subluxations and how long you have been suffering from them, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
