Healing Takes Time. You’re driving down the road. All of a sudden, the check engine light comes on. Of course, the first thing you do is make sure you can make it home. Or, perhaps you pull over and find a mechanic nearby. Alternatively, you may even call a tow truck. Would you think of disabling the check engine light? Of course not. However, many Americans like you take this approach every day with your health.

Healing Takes Time. All too often, a relatively new patient leaves my office because “they’re not getting better fast enough.” Many times, this is usually after only one or two visits. Additionally, it doesn’t seem to matter if the patient came for chiropractic care, enzyme nutrition, or even both. Instead, they will often seek pain medication from their primary care physician. While this medication has its place, it only covers the symptoms. Sadly, it provides no healing whatsoever. In fact, let me give you an example.
Let’s say you’re driving in your care. All of a sudden, the check engine light comes on, and perhaps your car’s computer chimes that there’s something wrong. Once this happens, what’s the first thing on your mind? In fact, how many of you think of disabling the light and the chime as a solution? Conversely, how many of you start to think about getting to the nearest repair shop?
Disabling the “Check Engine Light” in our Body
Sadly, many Americans take the first approach when it comes to our health. Instead of trying to fix the underlying cause, many Americans cover up the cause with pain medications. Unfortunately, that’s just like disabling the “check engine” light in your car. In a society focused on instant satisfaction, few realize that healing the underlying cause actually takes time. Unfortunately, few even “pop the hood” to see what’s wrong. In fact, this is why the opioid epidemic is such a problem in America.
Before I continue, I do understand that there’s a fundamental difference between your car and your body. Your body hurts and your car doesn’t. In fact, your body still needs sleep so you can heal. Furthermore, you can’t sleep if you’re in pain. As a result, pain medication has its place for short term relief. Meanwhile, it’s just as important to find and treat the underlying cause of the problem while you’re dealing with the symptom. However, this healing takes time, and we live in a society that is not willing to wait.
How Long Does it Take?
If healing takes time, just how long does it take? The medical community will tell you four to six weeks for one condition, six to eight weeks for some other condition etc. In fact, here’s a list. However, you need to remember these are AVERAGES. These figures do not consider the key factors. In fact, here they are. How long has the problem been there? The longer you suffer from the problem the longer it takes to heal. Secondly, how severe is the problem. Once again, the greater the severity, the longer it takes. Lastly, how old is the patient? Let’s face it, as we age, our ability to heal declines. This can also impact the healing process.
Teamwork for a Complete Approach
At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we can work alongside your medical staff. While they are providing you with immediate relief, we can help your body heal itself properly from the stress that caused the problem. Our doctor has several possible solutions. We can use low force or traditional chiropractic care to help your bones muscles and nerves work properly, and heal from injury. Additionally, we will provide customized rehabilitative exercises to further strengthen and stabilize injured areas. Massage therapy can help break up adhesions and scar tissue to increase blood flow and promote healing. Lastly, enzyme nutrition can scientifically find the source of nutritional stress in your body, and help those stressed organs work properly. As I stated earlier, this healing takes time.
If You Need Help
