How Long Will It Take

There is a whole generation of patients that has come to expect the fast, fast relief of "plop-plop-fizz-fizz," it is essential for you to have realistic expectations for the speed of their recovery.

As you care takes on a routine that will be repeated on future visits, we suggest that you take a moment to read this information so that you can have realistic expectations of their chiropractic care.

Remember, that chiropractic helps your body achieve optimal health naturally without drugs or surgery. We want you to understand that you are the one doing the healing, and not the chiropractor. You will also understand that the body heals at its own pace.

You're The Doctor

It surprises people to learn that drugs and doctors don't heal. They can't form scar tissue, mend a broken bone or heal a cut. Only you can do that!

So, our approach is to reduce interferences to your ability to heal. Since healing is directed by your nervous system, that is our focus.

How long it will take? Children, often see results quickly. Adults and seniors with long-standing problems take longer. Everyone responds differently.

Keep Your Appointments

Your care schedule is based on the results that millions have enjoyed.

If we don't see you often enough, reducing negative patterns in your spine is impaired. And if visits are scheduled too closely, your body wouldn't have enough time to make changes.

So, we take a middle path. Our advice is designed to produce the greatest results in the shortest amount of time. That's why keeping your appointments is so important.

Follow Our Suggestions

Chiropractic care, unlike medical treatment, is a partnership. Without your participation it will take longer and your results will be short-lived.

What you do at home and at work have as much (or more!) effect on your recovery than what we do, while you're in our office.

So, ask questions and participate in your care. Those who do seem to get well faster. Find out what you can do to augment the care you receive in our office.

The Limitations of Matter

We humans can't grow a new leg or replace a finger lost in an accident. We have limitations to our ability to heal. Our prospects worsen if we're overweight, use tobacco, abuse alcohol or live stressful lives.

Since your nervous system controls every tissue of your body, chiropractic care has been known to produce profound results. Our intention is to bring greater integrity to your nervous system. But, it takes time.

We're optimistic and you should be too!

It's easy to become impatient if you're accustomed to "fast, fast relief" by taking a pill that numbs your body. But true healing moves at its own pace.

By now you know many things affect this process. A fact often lost on insurance companies or others more interested in stockholder profits.

If your recovery doesn't progress as we expect, we'll change what we're doing. Or, we'll refer you to someone else. You and your health are our primary concern.

Most symptoms subside long before muscles and ligaments supporting your spine can fully heal. That's when it will be tempting to end your care.

But this weakened area of your spine predisposes you to a relapse.

Just as ongoing brushing and flossing promote dental health, we recommend regular spinal checkups. Sure, you'll be feeling great, but these visits help us catch new problems early and support you in your desire to be your best.

Use chiropractic to help you stay well after you get well.

How long will it take?
That depends on several things:

Your age. Our healing potential diminishes with age. There are exceptions, but generally younger people get quicker results than older people.

Your problem. It takes longer to resolve long-standing problems that have been neglected. More recent health problems tend to resolve faster.

Your discipline. Are you willing to make some positive changes in your life? If you're coachable and follow our suggestions you'll see better results.

Your goal. Your intentions are just as important as ours. Our motive is to support you in attaining optimum health. Is that what you want?

Your attitude. It's been proven that those with a positive outlook heal faster. As your nervous system works better, anything is possible!
