When Will I Feel Better?

There are some chiropractic patients that experience results after only one or a few treatments, they feel miraculously better and pain free. From the inception of chiropractic, the fist treated patient was blind for 17 years and regained sight almost immediately after an adjustment; there have been amazing results. On the other end of the spectrum, there are patients that are treated with chiropractic for long periods before they recover, and even patients who do not ever fully recover. These differences in recovery are all attributed to the uniqueness of the individual and their specific problem.


Many people may appear to be suffering from the same condition, but the fact is that the conditions are almost never exactly alike. A persons lifestyle, diet, exercise habits, mental health, physical well-being, physiological structure and environment all put a different spin on what appears to be the same condition that someone else may have. Take the common cold, we all suffer from it at times, but our symptoms and the degree that they affect us are all according to the individual person that the cold has moved in to.

Degree of Healing

Your degree of healing is the most accurate way to depict how long it will take to heal, but no chiropractor can ever give you an exact time. This exact time to heal is not possible because there are too many factors that comprise the body’s ability to heal. The degree of healing can be based on the following:

  • The degree of spinal damage that is determined by examination, x-rays, neurological and orthopedic testing, and various other diagnostic procedures.
  • Your individual characteristics: age, weight, diet, exercise, lifestyle, the duration of the illness at present, genetic predisposition, energy levels, stress and environment.
  • Your desire to work with the doctor, follow the treatment plan and become well again.

The Goal Of Chiropractic

Your Chiropractors goal is to relieve your body of vertebral subluxations so that your body may function properly.  Uncorrected vertebral subluxations can cause a weakening of the spinal muscles, stretch and deform the spinal column. Cartilage, discs and vertebrae. This causes a lack of energy, early aging and fatigue.  But the most prevalent result of spinal nerve stress is the irritation of the nervous system and brain stem.  This irritation is an interference that interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

You may suffer from spinal nerve stress for years before a symptom appears, but while symptoms are absent the damage to the body is being done over time.  This is why a chiropractic check-up and maintenance is very important. A vertebral subluxation, diagnosed in its early stage is easier to correct than a subluxation that has progressed to the point of actual symptoms. Just as we should see our dentist regularly, we should see our chiropractor regularly.  Like dental care, if a cavity is located when it is small it may be filled, but if one waits until pain is noticed that cavity may have already damaged the tooth beyond repair, the same holds true for vertebral subluxation.

Some of the first symptoms of spinal nerve stress are fatigue, moodiness, sleep disorders and depression. When these symptoms are noticed they should be listened to, as your body is warning you of a problem. Unfortunately, in our busy lives, we tend to ignore these symptoms until pain begins. True health means that your body is functioning to its fullest capacity, it does not mean that you are just pain free.

 Chiropractic is not a treatment for disease, however it does assist in raising resistance against the sickness and disease. Spinal nerve stresses damage the nervous system and can lead to disease of all kinds.  Chiropractors locate and free the body from spinal nerve stress. Studies have shown that there is a direct relationship between a healthy nervous system, a healthy body and a healthy mind.  Chiropractic should be used as a tool for total health, including physical and mental well-being.


Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
