Elizabethton Chiropractic – Healing Takes Time
At Elizabethton chiropractic, Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton chiropractic Team want you to understand that healing takes time. If you just cut your arm and had stitches in, it it would take 10 to 14 days to heal. If we told you to come back the next day to get the stitches out, you’d say we’re crazy. Well the same holds true for your spine and it’s healing. Most patients get relief within 1 to 4 weeks. Studies show for the ligament to truly heal you can take from three months to one year to totally heal.
At Elizabethton chiropractic, Dr. Howard Dennis wants you to get out of pain is soon as possible and wants you to get your spinal injury stabilized and on the road to wellness. This usually starts out with a simplified care plan for 6 to 12 weeks. This consists of Gonstead specific adjustments and therapy to help hold the vertebrae in place. Relief is usually the first thing to improve. The heat readings in the Nervoscope which shows heat differential readings from a vaso-response indicating objective findings of nerve pressure or subluxation usually take longer to improve. The swelling findings from static palpation of your injured spinal joint usually take longer to improve. Also, range of motion findings found with motion palpation which indicate the function of the spinal joint usually take longer to improve than symptom improvement, too.
Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton Chiropractic team use all of these objective findings to find out where your subluxation is. Subluxation is a misaligned vertebra causing a pinching of the nerve or pressure on a nerve. This functional problem can cause neck pain, mid back pain, low back pain, arm pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, chest pain, leg pain, knee pain, hip pain, buttock pain, sciatica, calf pain, ankle pain, heel pain, foot pain, and many more symptoms. It’s also important to know subluxation or a pinched nerve in your back does not always cause pain. When there is lack of function in your spine, degenerative changes start to take place. This can happen without you even having any pain. This is why it is important to get your back checked for this sometimes-hidden problem called subluxation.
Among Elizabethton Chiropractors, Dr. Howard Dennis and his Elizabethton Chiropractic team know it is important to understand that subluxation involves the spinal bone or vertebrae, the disc which is a ligament, the nerve which is nerve tissue, and the muscle connected to it. It is a motor unit and it cannot be separated. Healing time is available on the types of tissue injured. A broken bone heals quicker than a sprained ligament. A broken bone heals back stronger than it was before. A ligament heals back with scar tissue which is never as strong as before it was injured so proper therapy and specific Gonstead adjustments are very important to help the connective tissue you to heal in correct patterns while reestablishing specific function in the joint.
