For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
Back pain, neck pain, headaches, leg pain and all other types of pain are only the symptoms. Symptoms are usually, the last to appear when there is a problem and the first to disappear with treatment. So obviously, true healing is beyond the merely relief of symptoms.
We, at Spinal Care Clinics at Southend and Basildon, will do anything we can to get you as quickly as possible out of pain and towards health.
Phase 2. Corrective 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 back pain, neck pain, headache or any other condition recurring are much greater. We, at Spinal Care Clinics at Southend and Basildon, believe that 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 or in other words, the 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 back pain, neck pain, headaches or other 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.
Phase 3. Wellness Care.
Maintenance for Wellness = The Key to Healthy Living
Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your back pain, neck pain, headache or any other problem do not return, and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program in the gym and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue your chiropractic care to ensure the health of all your body systems.
When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage the activities you love.
