Muscles and other soft tissue damage often remain after your original symptoms have improved. In this phase people continue to go to their chiropractor because they need continued corrective care in order to strengthen and fix the issue. Rehabilitative care stabilizes your condition and promotes more complete healing. Visit frequency is reduced and you may be encouraged to supplement your care with exercise or other self-care procedures. With your achy pain gone, true healing can occur. Stopping care now may risk a relapse.
