How Long Will it Take?

There is no simple answer to this question. However, there are three guidelines or Rules of Healing that may give you some idea how long it may take and how much work may be required.

Rule #1: The Rule of Symptom Relief – You may some degree of improvement within 6 weeks of starting care.

Like going on a diet or starting an exercise program, you don’t lose 10Kg in just a couple of days. Even at the end of 6 weeks it does not mean that things will be 100% perfect. Much of it depends how well you are able to do the necessary things so that your body can heal.

Certainly, I prefer rapid change myself. However, the fact is that change happens one step at a time. There are no shortcuts.

Chiropractic is not a cure for any disease or ailment. It is an approach to promote health and proper body functioning.

Rule #2: The Rule of Body Healing – It can take your body extra time to recover if you have had a long term underlying condition.

There is a difference between symptom relief and healing. Symptoms can subside quickly. Tissue repair and healing usually takes longer.

This rule is true even if the underlying condition (ie, spinal misalignment) has not been causing you any grief previously. In fact, people can suffer an injury 10-15 years prior to the onset of any major problems.

Rule #3: The Rule of Adjusting Frequency – It is impossible to know how long your first adjustment will stay.

For this reason, it is important when starting care to keep a close eye to monitor how you respond to your adjustments.

Let me be clear: I do not like keeping anyone on a high-intensity schedule of care for long at all. As soon as you notice an improvment and it it clear that your adjustment is holding, we can reduce the frequency of your checkups.

I will always give you my best recommendation of care. However, I never want you (or anyone else) to ever feel pushed into accepting any more care than is comfortable for you. We will always do things one step at a time at a pace that is comfortable for you.
