You want to be well, right? Your Chiropractor has located the spinal cause of your condition and has determined that, in his opinion, yours is a chiropractic case.
Don't expect too much, too soon
If your dentist treats one tooth and tells you that you have two more that need attention -- you're not going to have a healthy mouth until they are treated -- the sooner the better. Now that your chiropractor has begun the adjustment of your spine, no instant miracle will strengthen and align connective muscles and ligaments that have been in trouble for months or years. The recommended number and frequency of adjustments are essential if you are to regain full health.
You want maximum results in minimum time
Of course, you will want to get maximum results in a minimum amount of time. To do this, wholehearted cooperation with your chiropractor's recommendations is vital. They have had years of scientific training and experience in chiropractic and is a recognized authority in this very specialized field.
What the chiropractor will do, and why
Normal nerve and body functions are restored as a result of chiropractic correction of a faulty human mechanism, particularly the misaligned spinal column. This correction and restoration actually starts a healing process similar to that of knitting bones and healing cuts. Adjustments at the beginning of chiropractic care may necessarily be more frequent than later on. This is because spinal vertebrae will not maintain proper position after each adjustment any faster than the muscle and ligament tension can be adapted by the body. Isn't it logical, then, that the patient who gets the recommended number of adjustments, and gets them regularly, will get well much faster than the one who may get more adjustments -- but irregularly?
And now you know
Yes, now that you know how to get well in the shortest possible time, you will want to cooperate with your chiropractor in accomplishing this goal. Regularity of chiropractic care will insure correction more promptly and enable both you and your chiropractor to prevent unnecessary relapses. So, for your health's sake,
