After your chiropractic appointment, it's important to take some post-care steps to make the most of your treatment. Here are some of our suggestions:
Rest and Relax: Give your body some time to adjust after the adjustment, if possible. Some patients enjoy a gentle walk immediately after their appointment, others prefer to rest and avoid any strenuous activities.
Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help with the digestion of food and nutrient absorption, movement of the body, elimination of waste products, and can also keep our body at the right temperature. Dehydration may also lead to the development of headaches, or dizziness which we want you to avoid, especially after your adjustment.
Follow Recommendations: Dr. Dominguez may provide specific advice or exercises to do at home. If directed to, download the PhysiApp to complete your directed exercises to support your treatment.
Maintain Good Posture: Be mindful of your posture, both at work and during daily activities. Proper posture can help maintain the benefits of your chiropractic care.
Ice or Heat: Depending on your treatment, you may find relief from applying ice or heat to the treated area. Consult with Dr. Dominguez for guidance on this.
Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to how your body feels in the days following the appointment. If you experience any discomfort or changes, communicate with Dr. Dominguez.
Schedule Follow-up Appointments: Regular appointments can help maintain your spinal health. Consider scheduling your next visit at Alice Springs Chiropractic to stay on track with your care plan.
