Eliminating pain is the first step in chiropractic care, but is certainly does not stop there. Most chiropractors consider eliminating pain the easiest part of chiropractic. If a patient stops receiving care just because their pain has stopped, the likelihood of the pain causing condition to recur becomes greater.

Visits to your chiropractor become much less frequent during the correction/restorative phase of care than in the initial phase. In most circumstances, stretches and exercises may be performed at the center or at home to help accelerate the healing process.

This phase can last anywhere from a few months to a few years depending on the severity of your condition and how long you have been suffering from it.
