One of the first questions a lot of my patients ask me about their care here is: “How long is this going to take me?” Now I have to admit, this is a good question. I’m going to tell you my answer and if you like it, make sure you tell me at your next visit so I can continue to answer questions that help you understand your care here.
As you know, some drug treatments are prescribed for a lifetime. Like diabetic drugs and blood pressure drugs. When you are given the prescription, the medical doctor usually says, “You’re going to be on these the rest of your life.”
Let me say this. I don’t want you to expect me to UNDO years of dis-ease in a single visit or even a few visits. Yes, you might feel better in one visit, or seven visits, but I want you to know, I’m not the one that does the healing. Your body is the healer. I just align your spine so you can heal naturally, from inside out.
I’ll try to tell you how long it might take before you achieve maximum correction, but if you really want to make a change in your life and your children’s lives, you’ll want to stay under some kind of chiropractic care the rest of your life. Some people maintain their CARS better than they do their bodies.
The latest research shows that 18 months is a bare minimum, but once you’ve reached that stage, things really change internally. You’re going to be
feeling a lot better after a few weeks or even a few days, but if you’re looking for long lasting benefits, and a better quality of life, you’ll need to have an adjustment regularly for the rest of your life.
Your long term care is based on three things:
- I’ll look at your objective findings, and your diagnostic findings, and then…
- I’ll use my experience with other patients who’ve had similar nerve interference patterns.
- Then I’ll consider those characteristics that are unique to you, including your age, how long you’ve had your nerve interference, your general health history, genetic factors, emotional stress, job activities, exercise regimen, water intake and your diet.
The real SECRET is to be “patient with your care”. Work with me and be very honest about how you feel about your care. The better your doctor/client interaction with me, the better your healing experience.
