Phase 2: Corrective Care


Teaming Up for Optimal Health

Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms, such as back pain, neck pain and headaches, as the easiest part of a patient's care. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain through chiropractic adjustments and stop there, the chances of the pain recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of pain, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.


During the correction / restorative phase of your care, you will not have to receive chiropractic adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may be given rehabilitative exercises and stretches to do either at the office or at home to help accelerate your healing and help strengthen the surrounding muscles.


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 spinal 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 of years.

Testimonials

  • "I came to Oakland Chiropractic after a friend and co-worker referred me as I was having low back pain. I had been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis and had tried other therapies, but felt like they only wanted me to limit what I could do. This was frustrating as I am very active and enjoy working out. At my first visit, Dr. Gary sat down with me and came up with a plan to ease my pain and strengthen my back, while still allowing me to do what I love. I started feeling better after my first week of treatment and beginning my home exercises. Since I have been coming regularly, I feel amazing - I honestly have never felt better. Thank you Oakland Chiropractic for saving my back!"
