What Factors Can Impact Your Chiropractic Care?

By Donna Stark

Generally, when you get sick with an infection, you head to your doctor, you get a prescription, and you come home with an "end date" in mind. This end date is the estimated number of days that you can expect it will take until you are well again, and it is usually dependent on the type of medicine you are prescribed. For example, some prescriptions tell you to take the medicine for five days, others may tell you 10, but whatever the number of days you are told, isn't it nice to know that there really is light at the end of the tunnel?

The End Date of Chiropractic Care

Unfortunately, chiropractic care doesn't work the same way those bottles of antibiotics do. It's difficult to say when exactly your body will stop hurting or when it will start to function at an optimal level because there are too many other factors involved. Now, that doesn't mean you won't start feeling immediate relief (many people do!), it just means you may need to have a bit of patience to get the results you are searching for. Let's take a look at some of the factors that can contribute to the speed of the healing process in your body.

  • The issue - Depending on the severity and the type of the medical issue, the time it takes to recover could be drastically different from one person to the next
  • The duration - If your pain issue just started last week, you will generally have a faster recovery than one that has been festering for years, or even decades
  • Your health - Components of your overall health and wellness, such as the strength of your immune system, your weight, the amount of sleep you get each night, and the number of other conditions you are battling can play a huge role in the speed at which your body can heal
  • Your age - It's been said that the older we are, the slower we heal, so keep that in mind when you are going in for your chiropractic adjustments and stop comparing the healing process of similar injuries from when you were younger
