Successful repair of the human body requires purpose based rehabilitation programs. These are uniquely individual and are customised to suit each chiropractic diagnosis it serves.
Chiropractic rehabilitation plans are designed to identify the parts of the body which are painful and aims to restore their normal functions.
Usually there are three active phases of rehabilitation that need to be followed to remove pain and instability from the site of complaint.
These include the acute, corrective and maintenance phases of care.
The acute phase of care is designed to reduce tension, inflammation, swelling and pain and may last from one to four weeks.
The corrective phase of care targets weakened areas surrounding the site of pain and aims to strengthen these body parts.
Maintenance phase care is then implemented for further improvement of body function and designed to prevent any relapse of dysfunction and pain.
