Provo Chiropractor: Active Care
Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's care. If all that the Provo chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater.
In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.
Phase 2 with our Provo Chiropractor is Active Care. There is no long-term benefit to passive care (including chiropractic care) alone. During the active care phase, we treat both the spine and the muscles to provide long-term pain relief.
Provo Chiropractor: Seeking Recovery?
Our Provo chiropractor treats the spine using computerized spinal adjustments and treats the muscle using highly advanced spinal physical therapy machines.
By using our spinal rehabilitation machine we are able to essentially build a "back-brace" out of the muscle for long-term relief.
The duration of active care depends largely on the degree of injury.
Provo Chiropractor: Seeking 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. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at our Provo Chiropractic office or at home to help accelerate your healing.
Do not be discouraged if you have occasional 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.
Depending on the severity of your injury or condition and how long you have been suffering from it, this phase of your care may last anywhere from a few months to a couple years. That time frame is up to you and your commitment to treatment.
