“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
We are impatient. It’s human nature I suppose. We want what we want, and we want it right now. The concept of delayed gratification seems to be becoming a lost principle in life today. We can borrow money for a car we can’t afford, we can buy expensive shoes with our credit card balance, and if we’re hungry there is a drive through right around the corner.
Oftentimes if someone comes into the office with a specific problem they are hoping chiropractic can help, they want to know how long it will take before they feel better. The only honest answer I can give them is to say I don’t know and/or that their is a possibility their problem will never go away. Honestly, if any other professional makes promises otherwise, they are lying to you.
Every human being is different. I do believe that your body can heal from anything, and we have examples of people healing and recovering from the most devastating of injuries or illnesses. Conversely, you have folks with minor back pain that turns into surgery, and then results in a lifetime of dysfunction and pain. Other folks that have a problem linger for decades.
The human body was made to heal, but in order to heal it needs a few things. First, the matter needs to be in a condition where it isn’t so far damaged that it cannot heal. It needs to be healthy enough to regenerate and heal. Second, you need the proper environment, information, and nutrients to flow into the area at 100%. Lastly, you need time.
Chiropractors deal with the second part of the equation by ensuring that your body is able to heal and function at 100%. You cannot heal fully with a subluxation. It simply cannot happen. Your body isn’t getting the quantity and/or quality of life force that it needs. Subluxation creates an environment where your body doesn’t have proper information flowing around to heal. Chiropractors remove subluxation thereby allowing your body to do its job.
The last point, time, is worth noting. Healing takes time. The time it takes varies from individual to individual. The younger you are and the healthier you are, the quicker you heal and the more likely you will be able to heal fully. Conversely, if you are advanced in age and/or unhealthy, your chances of healing properly are greatly diminished.
You could heal up instantaneously in some instances. Other times it may take years. There is no way to know for sure. Sure, you can make some educated guesses, but they’re just that, guesses at best.
Don’t give up on your body. If you don’t give up, and just keep trying, good things will happen. Stay the course. Each healthy and good decision you make brings you one step closer to the goal. A step in the right direction is always good. The worst thing you can do is give up. Giving up is guaranteeing you will never get there. Who knows, you could be one adjustment away from optimal health…
