Think about spinal correction like the stock market. There will be ups and downs along the way but the overall trend is up.
Sometimes patients will get one or two adjust-ments and feel amazing only to have some of the pain return days later.
Once you understand how the body heals and responds you can make sure you are maximizing your care and are patient when there are down days.
Just like a good stock broker, you have to look at the long term objective which is maximum spinal correction.
Health is a journey, not a destination!
