Time to Heal ???
Your health is your most important asset! Take it seriously....we do!!

One of the first questions a lot of my patients ask me about chiropractic is: “How long is this going to take me to heal up doc?” This is a good question, but just let me say this.

Some drug treatments are prescribed for a lifetime. Things 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.”

Now let me say something about your healthcare and chiropractic. I don’t want you to expect me to UNDO years of dis-ease in a single visit. You might feel better in one visit, but I want you to know, I’m not the one that does the real healing. Your body is the healer. Symptoms always come last and disappear first.

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, you’ll want to stay under some kind of chiropractic care the rest of your life. Kind of like brushing your teeth. You just do it.

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 days, but if you’re looking for long lasting benefits, you’ll need to have an adjustment regularly for the rest of your life.


Your long term care at this office is based on three things:

  1. I’ll look at your objective findings, and your diagnostic findings, and then…
  2. I’ll use my experience with other patients who’ve had similar nerve interference patterns.
  3. 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, weight 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/patient interaction with me, the better your healing experience.
