Chiropractic works to get joints moving, relax muscles, soften ligaments and speed up healing times. Most injuries have what is called a natural history of healing. What that means is how long it takes, without any treatment, for a particular type of injury to heal.
The practice of chiropractic is to improve the function of the injured area to allow it to heal as fast as possible and hasten the recovery.
Your chiropractor will be able to assess your injury, see what stage it is at and advise if your issue is something appropriately treated with chiropractic care. If so they will then give you an estimate of what it may take to get you back to your normal happy healthy self. This may include chiropractic adjustments (treatment) as well as stretches, exercises, heat or cold therapy, natural anti-inflammatory creams or even vitamin or anti-inflammatory supplements, all to improve your body’s ability to heal.
