Cinder Blocks and Healing

Question:  If you dropped a cinder block on your foot, what’s the first thing you must do to start the healing process?

Answer: Get the cinder block off your foot!

Sounds simple, but it’s true. Your foot won’t heal until the pressure is removed first.  And once the cinder block is removed don’t expect your foot to look or feel normal right away!  It’s going to take time to repair all that damage.  The same principle applies to your chiropractic care.

A subluxation acts like a cinder block on a nerve, causing damage and inflammation. Sometimes it can even result in pain.  Healing can occur only when the pressure is removed and kept off the nerve with regular chiropractic adjustments.  But that won’t necessarily bring instant relief.

Removing the pressure is simply the first step in a timely process.
So if you don’t feel great immediately after your adjustment, don’t be discouraged!  With regular care and time, damaged tissues will have a better potential to heal.  For now, be confident the healing process has at least started because the cinder block (subluxation) has been removed.
