It takes time to heal. The more time you’ve been in pain, the more time it can take for the body to correct itself. Here is an amusing anecdote of an exchange I had with a patient on this subject.
A good rule of thumb is that the longer you’ve been experiencing pain, the more time it will take for the the body to heal itself. Remember, the Chiropractic adjustment doesn’t heal you, it restores the proper flow of nerve energy through the body which in turn allows the body to heal itself, so unfortunately we cannot always expect to feel better overnight.
