Corrective Chiropractic Care is one of the most advanced and important types of treatment and is usually seen as an investment that will get your body working at its best and prevent a lot of future problems. If all that the chiropractor does is to reduce the pain and fails to correct the underlying structural issue, the chances of the condition recurring are high. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms and future complications, it is often necessary to continue chiropractic care even though your symptoms are gone.
In this phase, the goal is often structural and functional changes. Depending on your particular circumstances, you may begin doing exercises and stretches either at the center or at home to help accelerate your healing. There is usually a period of remodeling and strengthening, followed by a period of maintaining these changes.
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.
Once healing has occurred and the corrections have been maintained, the third and final phase, Wellness Care can begin. In a perfect world, everyone would start chiropractic care in this phase and the chance of needing the first two phases would be a lot less.
This is a phenomenal Chiropractor! Dr. Paul Hodgson truly cares, and pays great attention to detail. I have had many Chiropractors over the years, but none have been able to address my spine and nervous system like Dr. Hodgson has. My issues were primarily in my lower neck area, an area where too many Chiropractors in the past have attempted to adjust and have completely struck out. They either jam it further, or completely skip over that area because it's "too hard" or "too stuck". Not only was Dr. Paul able to release this troublesome area of my spine regularly, but he did with ease and specificity. Of course, I feel "like a million" after I get off his table. A great Doctor and a great man. Thanks so much, Dr. Paul!!!
