Healing is like the stock market. It never progresses in a straight line. You’ve got to expect some ups and downs along the way; that’s life.
You might experience a surge of relief when you first start chiropractic care, only to be followed by a ‘setback.’ Soon you’re back on track, seeing improvements. Progress continues with bouts of highs and lows, and you may even experience a plateau or dip, but don’t make the mistake of ‘pulling out of the market’ early.
Keep the big picture in mind. Like stocks, gains in chiropractic are best seen over a long period of time. When you look back and see how far you’ve come, you’ll realize the life dividends are paying off.
Thank you to the Weekly Sticky for the above paragraphs and thoughts. Healing, and life in general, isn’t linear. People will ask how long something might take to get better, or what to expect for timelines, and the only honest answer is, “I don’t know.”
First, it is not my objective to make hurt things feel better. I don’t like for people to be in discomfort or pain, but it is not my objective either. My objective is to locate and adjust subluxation, so your innate intelligence can flow more freely.
Secondly, I have no clue when, or even if, your problem will resolve. Sure, we can make some educated and experiential guesses, but nobody can say with certainty. How many times have you heard that a doctor gave someone xxx amount of days to live, and it’s 8 years later and they are still kicking?!
The body is capable of some truly amazing things, and to try to guess what it’s going to do, or is capable of, is an uncertain venture. I will tell you what I do know with certainty…
That your body is capable of doing things far greater than you were ever led to believe it could do. That the power that took one cell and turned it into the person you are today is still working inside of you. You are powerful beyond measure. Know that, and know that anything is possible. Don’t put limiting thoughts and beliefs on yourself.
Starting to sound like Tony Robbins here… but it’s true. My practice is set up to allow you and your entire family to reap the benefits of regular chiropractic care for a lifetime. A clear spine allows the life within your body to flow more freely, and work its ‘magic’ more easily.
You are always better off without subluxation, with a clear spine. Your body will always work better when it is subluxation free. These are the facts that I DO know, and it is my sole objective to ensure you are living a subluxation free life as often as possible. Schedule a complimentary consultation and see what sets us apart from everyone else.
Until next time,
