How long does it take to get back pain?
Many people sit more or less constantly for 8 hours a day doing a stressful job,
often in a poor chair with keyboard, monitor, telephone, paperwork, lunch and coffee
mug fighting for space on the desk in front of them. Then they either go home and
collapse in yet more poor seating -
Some of the people who knock on our door expect a quick fix, regardless of how long they have had their symptoms. Some expect us to make them better. Others, more realistically, expect to put a bit of work in themselves through exercise, changes to how they sit, walk and lift etc. In most cases it will take more than a visit or two to correct all the problems that years of bad habits have created.
We do get people better. A lot of people. Literally thousands of people. However, getting good and long lasting results take time and effort from both us and you.
Sometimes it starts with short lived niggles -
It is well known that freeing up the locked joints in the spine takes 6 to 8 weeks of regular care. Rehabilitation exercises take 12 to 16 weeks to have maximum effect .
4 months to make up for years of neglect. It doesn’t sound so bad that way, does it?
Best results may require insoles, a change in seating posture and habits, exercise, a new mattress and a different approach to work, rest and play. Yes, a lot of people feel much better after a couple of short weeks and some choose to discontinue care then. They are also usually the people who come back with yet another recurrence and this time even more painful and difficult to ‘fix’. If you only push the ball half way up the hill, it is sure to roll back down when you let go….
Everyone has probably heard of someone who crawled in to a chiropractor’s office
and walked out feeling great. It does occur -
If you are one of the many people who have yet to start caring for your back or if
you are one for whom the ‘quick fix’ approach has failed -
