There is an inverse relationship between pain and function.
When pain goes up, function goes down. When function goes down, quality of life and independence is significantly affected.
American Chiropractic’s approach is more than a method of reducing pain. Our focus is on restoring life.
Our care tracks performance-based outcomes to optimize and stabilize your body’s spinal function and minimize your risk of injury against life’s unknowns.
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 recurrence of symptoms, 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 adjustments as often as you did during the first phase of care and, depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home 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 may last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years.
