If you have ever tried to lose weight you know that one good workout or skipping a single will only get you so much results. The same can be said about chiropractic treatment in the vast majority of cases. Just as changes in diet and exercise chiropractic care often builds upon each visit and the best results are seen with repetition and discipline. Making lasting changes to your spine the as well as the supporting muscles and other soft tissue require time as well as constant input to achieve.
Often times pain is one of the later symptoms to show up in an individual. In the majority of cases we see dysfunction, instability, or abnormal posture precedes levels of pain. To properly address where the pain is coming from getting down to the root of the problem allows and putting together a specific program that includes a combination of exercise, adjustments, traction, as well as lifestyle modification. This allows us to rehabilitate the area of concern and as with any other worthwhile cause this takes time and repetition to reach the maximum results.
So when we make recommendations for our patients for care know that our recommendations are based on these principles. Plans can change significantly based on a patients goals they would like to achieve. We are always happy to work towards the goals a patient would like to achieve but for best results time an repetition are an incredible important factor. Healing, like all processes takes time. And everyone recovers at his or her own pace, based on their age, condition and countless lifestyle choices.
Some of the factors that can affect the recovery process include:
- Keeping your appointments
- Drinking more water
- Being at your proper weight
- Eating healthier foods
- Fallowing prescribed exercises
- Getting sufficient sleep
- Improving our posture
Our office is committed to helping each patient reach their health care goals that they have set out. While we will always present the path towards maximum results, how long a person decides to benefit from Chiropractic care is always the patients choice.
