Healing takes time. Often we don't listen to our bodies to fully understand its needs when recovering from an illness or injury. Trauma to the body, no matter what form, doesn't heal overnight. Have you ever said to yourself "usually I'm not bothered by this but for some reason I'm not getting over it this time as fast?" If so, you haven't allowed your body to properly recover from an illness or injury in the past. Therefore, each incident takes a larger toll on the body and mind for a longer period of time. No matter what we are recovering from, providing our body with the best opportunity to function, recover, and heal is essential.
Plenty of rest, good nourishment and hydration, and relaxation are all key components whether you've broken your leg, suffered with a simple cold, lost a loved one, drug addiction, or recently had surgery. Another important piece to the recovery puzzle is allowing your nervous system which controls all functions of the body be free from interference. Chiropractic care focuses on helping restore proper function to your nervous system which allows for better overall health and an improved recovery process. It allows for faster healing times by removing any nervous system inference.
A case study followed a 37-year old man who recently had surgery. Post-surgical symptoms included nausea, fatigue, gastric reflux, dizziness, and migraines. Multiple spinal subluxations (or blockages of the spinal cord) were found. He received chiropractic adjustments to remove those interferences to his nervous system. This allowed his body to maintain a more optimal healing environment after his surgical procedure. Following 3 weeks of chiropractic care, the patient reported improvements in all of his symptoms and was also able to stop taking multiple medications. Chiropractic care helps create a pathway to healing no matter what the initial injury or illness is. The power that made the body heals the body when it is free from interference!
