Correct treatment of your condition is vital, but it is also just as important how you behave between treatments. To optimise your recovery, follow carefully the instructions given to you by your chiropractor. Avoid rubbing or poking the areas which have been treated. Do not “try out” the area by bending or twisting the joint just after treatment – this is likely to cause more damage. Take care with how you sit and stand; do not cross your legs when sitting and when standing make sure your weight is equally balanced on both legs.
You will be advised by your chiropractor whether to rest or remain active, however, let pain be your guide and if it hurts do not do it.

- You are advised not to sit on a chair with your legs crossed, or sit with a wallet in your back pocket
