Phase 2: Corrective Care

Corrective care is an essential phase in chiropractic treatment, which focuses on addressing underlying issues and restoring proper alignment and function to the body. During this phase, our chiropractor, Dr. Peterson, utilizes targeted techniques to correct spinal misalignments and help your body heal. Before visiting Peterson Chiropractic in Durham, NC, for treatment, continue reading to learn more about this phase!


Understanding Corrective Care

Chiropractic treatment often involves a multi-phase approach tailored to the needs of the individual. Phase 2, also known as Corrective Care, is a crucial stage in the healing process for those seeking relief from musculoskeletal issues. Unlike Phase 1, which focuses on alleviating symptoms and pain, Corrective Care aims to address the underlying causes of discomfort and dysfunction.

Addressing the Root Causes of Discomfort

During Corrective Care, our chiropractor delves deeper into the biomechanical imbalances and structural issues contributing to the patient's condition. By identifying and addressing these root causes, the goal is to help you heal and prevent recurring problems. Through a combination of manual adjustments, therapeutic exercises, and targeted therapies, we help restore proper alignment, function, and mobility to the affected areas.

Improving Spinal Function

Corrective Care is designed to help the spine and musculoskeletal system function properly. Treatment not only alleviates pain, but also improves posture, flexibility, and range of motion. Our chiropractor uses specific adjustments and rehabilitation exercises to retrain the muscles and joints, which promotes better alignment and supports your spinal health.

Progression and Monitoring

Throughout Phase 2, patients undergo a structured treatment plan that is designed to progressively improve their condition. Regular progress evaluations and adjustments ensure that the therapy remains effective and targeted to the individual's evolving needs. Our chiropractor closely monitors the patient's response to treatment and makes any necessary modifications to help individuals recover fully.

Preventing Reoccurring Injuries

In addition to addressing existing issues, Corrective Care focuses on preventing future injuries. Individuals learn techniques for proper posture, body mechanics, and self-care to minimize the risk of further injury. By actively participating in their recovery and adopting healthy lifestyle habits, patients can enjoy long-lasting relief.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
