First State Health & Wellness | FAQs

As DE chiropractors, we hear many questions from new and current chiropractic patients. Here are some of the most common questions and answers…

How long is it going to take to get better?

It depends. Hopefully, you will notice your symptoms decrease after the first few adjustments (treatment) with your DE chiropractor. A complete resolution of your pain will take longer than that first week or two. Moreover, everyone heals differently. Let me explain…

Healing is dependent on a lot of factors. Some simple ones are how severe is the problem, how long has the patient had it, how often are your adjustments, age, genetics, and complicating factors such as degenerative disc disease or metabolic disorders. If the whole body is unhealthy or deficient in essential nutrients because of a poor diet, the damaged tissue can’t repair. So, the key to a speedy recovery is keep to your treatment schedule and a proper diet with good supplements to make sure your body has everything it needs.

If I start going to a chiropractor, will I have to keep going forever?

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. Life is filled with choices and you make yours to live the way you want. The reason people choose chiropractic is they want to live their life to the fullest. They want to pick up their grandchildren without pain and sit without constant discomfort. You always have a choice whether you want life’s simple treasures to be a source of pain or joy.

Repairing a damaged spine or joint with chiropractic isn’t overnight. Think about exercising. You don’t go the gym once, never go back, and declare yourself fit for life. It is the same thing with chiropractic. If you want to be healthy in our modern world you have to work at it. So get in here and let’s get to work!
