Corrective care is usually prescribed when the cause of patient symptoms roots from misalignments in the body. This level of care can help to permanently improve pain, weakness, mobility, and the risk of re-injury.
Even though the symptoms of your injury may be long gone corrective care must continue for maximal recovery. Typically patients require between 4-8 visits per month for 6 to 24 months, depending on the severity of your issue.
At this point in your treatment, you may also be given exercises and stretches to do at home as part of your daily routine. This will accelerate the healing process and help you build habits that will help prevent re-injury.
