After your initial visit, Drs. Derek and Andrea will have a better idea of what length of care will be necessary for your individual case. The first month is typically where you will experience a major change in symptoms, but our main goal is to have you ultimately start holding the adjustment as soon as possible so that your body can start the healing process. We aren’t trying to achieve a quick fix by covering up symptoms, all proper healing takes time. Your particular case depends on your health history, what other health challenges you may be facing, past accidents and injuries, and other factors like your current medications and stressors in your daily life. Generally speaking, children respond a lot faster than adults because they do not have the same level of spinal degeneration, wear and tear, excessive inflammation, ligament instability, or poor postural habits that are found in many adults.
