The most common reason why people chose to visit a chiropractor is because of pain or discomfort in the musculoskeletal system. Whiplash, sports injuries, headaches, neck pain and low back pain are common reasons why people come to see me in my office. However bad habits are often overlooked as a cause of some of these complaints.
One thing that people have difficulty in understanding is how repetitive injuries, long term emotional stress and bad posture can cause long term problems. Sitting long hours, accumulating emotional stress, typing without proper breaks, sleeping/standing/sitting improperly can cause severe long term problems that may take time to correct. Often times people become impatient and want a quick fix. Long term problems don’t just “go away”. Like everything in life, getting well and staying well is hard work. It takes time to get your body to function properly.
So, how long does it take for me to feel better?
People often want a time estimate for their healing. Since we are all unique, every patient responds differently with care. Your body dictates the rate of healing and function. It is not uncommon for someone with and injury to feel better even though the problem is not completely healed. This is why we always check on your progress and perform re-exams. We want to track your healing process and get the fastest results we can to keep you feeling great. A good chiropractor will always compare past visits to see how you progress in care. We want you to reach your goals and keep you feeling healthy and functioning at your highest capacity.
When we work together as a team, we get great results!
