The elimination of symptoms is the first phase of patient care. This usually happens much sooner than most patients expect. However, wellness does not stop at pain relief. In order to get better faster and stay better longer, it is necessary to complete the prescribed treatment plan to maximize results and ensure symptoms do not return.
Do not be discouraged if you have occasional flare-ups in your symptoms throughout your treatment plan, as this is not unusual. This is normal. For some, flare ups tend 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 vary.
