The Indian and The Feather
There was once a story about an Indian that slept on a feather for one night. The next morning he woke up with a stiff neck and a headache stating that the whiteman is foolish and that feathers are not soft for sleeping.
Similarly, people will come in to a chiropractic office and get one or two adjustment and either think that it is all they need or that it "doesn't work."
Sometimes there is dramatic relief of symptoms or diseases when a person is adjusted. Other times it takes a very long time for the body to heal.
Unfortunately, because everyone is different, we can never accurately predict what will happen. But we do know that under ideal conditions, it will take up to 1-3 years for an unhealthy spine to become healthy and then a lifetime to maintain it that way.
Remember that anything that is of benefit to your health and life must be done consistently throughout your lifetime to experience the most out of it.
Those of you that have been regular with your care know that already. You are living your lives at a higher level and make me proud to do what I do.
For those of you that do not come in as regularly, what are you waiting for? Make the commitment for a better life and as the Nike commercials say, Just Do It!
