As our Patient Educator explains in this video, there are four phases of care: relief, corrective, strengthening, and wellness. Each phase is important to address to get the person in pain back to optimal health.
The relief phase of care is where we address the symptoms that are occurring to help bring a reduction of those symptoms and the resulting inflammation.
The corrective phase of care is next. In this phase of care, the symptoms are improving or disappearing. The main part of this phase is that function and mobility are starting to come back.
After relief and correction, comes strengthening. This is where improved function and mobility lead to increased strength returning. This builds back the muscles to keep the correction in place.
The final phase of care is wellness. This is the phase that maintains the correction and strength. Functionality has returned and the person is able to maintain their spine in order to prevent future injury.
