At the review we will re-visit your original problem in more detail and take a second look at how well things have progressed. We will also plan any necessary changes to your care and communicate these to you.
Although we re-assess at every appointment, the review involves even more comprehensive re-assessment of progress to date.
The review is a fantastic opportunity to take a look at how things have progressed and to take things to the next stage.
'Treatment when I'm not in pain'?
There is good evidence from a recent well designed medical trial (Senna and Machaly, Spine 2011) that for chronic low back pain, "maintenance spinal manipulation after the initial intensive manipulative therapy" results in fewer re-occurrences of pain over a 12 month period and also higher patient satisfaction with regard to the care that they have received. Chiropractors have been saying this or years, but now medical trials support this form of care.
The old adage "Prevention is better than cure" is proven true again.
At Precision we find that patients have frequently had pain for a number of years. The number of exacerbations and degree of pain frequently increases over this time. By the time you have been through a course of care with us and have experienced the benefits, it is often a very simple decision.
'Maintaining the new level of comfort simply makes perfect sense'.
