The healing process always takes time. Depending upon the individual, the time required will vary. Children typically respond very quickly, while adults with longstanding problems will need more time. Your healing will depend upon your unique case, history, age, health and attitude.
Chiropractic care can be divided into 3 phases for pain relief:
- Intensive Care: A chronic (long-standing) or acute (recent) subluxation(s) has led to damage which is likely causing symptoms of pain and malfunction. This may be the first of one of may episodes. Frequent visits are recommended to gain relief from your most obvious symptoms.
- Corrective Care: This stage marks the time for a decision. The symptoms have settled. Do you discontinue care and risk a complete relaps with another round of the intensive care or continue with correcting the problem and increasing the structural stability of your spine?
- Wellness Care: Your spine now shows a state of increased stability, strength and flexibility. This stage involves periodic spinal checkups to maintain your new, improved level of health. Life-style changes will be suggested.
