A glass of water can put out a flame, but it won’t put out a raging forest fire – it’s the right idea, but it’s lacking in appropriate quantity. The same can be said for the results of Chiropractic care.
The purpose of multiple adjustments, in a frequency specifically chosen for your case, is to keep your nerve system ‘clear’ long enough for your body to grow into a new, healthier state. For many (especially if you suffer with long-standing, chronic health issues) that means that frequent sessions initially to assure your innate intelligence has unrestricted nerve pathways and the proper TIME required to accomplish the healing. Note, adjustments don’t get you well…it’s the time you remain subluxation-free in between sessions that does.
One day at the gym won’t turn you into Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a single Paleo meal won’t make you skinny. You would laugh at someone, if, after eating healthily for 12-15 meals, they still have only lost 1 lb. Exercise and proper nutrition can get you healthy, but they need to be repeated regularly to see real change. Don’t think of chiropractic any differently than working out with a trainer. Your desired chiropractic results come from time, repetition, and a sustained clear nerve system, and unfortunately, there is no rushing this process.
