Question: If you drop a cinder block on your foot, what’s the first thing you must do for the healing process to start?
Answer: Get the cinder block off your foot!
Sounds simple, but it’s true. Your foot won't heal until the offending pressure is removed first. And once the cinder block is removed don’t expect your foot to look or feel great right away! It’s going to take time to repair all the carnage. The same principle applies to your chiropractic care…
A misaligned vertebrae (subluxation) acts like a cinder block on a nerve causing damage, pain and inflammation. Healing can occur only when the offending pressure is removed and kept off with a series of chiropractic adjustments. But that won't necessarily bring instant relief. Removing the pressure is simply the first step in a timely process.
So if you don't feel great immediately after your adjustment, don't be discouraged. With time damaged tissues will heal and you'll feel like new again. For now, be confident the healing process has at least started because the cinder block has been removed.
