How Fast Will I Recover?

One of the most common questions we get asked is “How fast will I recover?”

Read below to see what Dr. Corey Burt has to say!

Recovery is based on ONE important factor – how long you maintain your corrected alignment.  

You see, it’s not getting adjusted that gets you well, it’s holding your adjustment that gets you well.

Which brings us to the “holding is healing” rule.

This rule means that recovery takes one month for every year you have been misaligned. 

Let’s break that down. 

Let’s say you got injured 5 years ago, causing your misalignment. That means that it will take around 5 months of holding your alignment to recover from the injury.

You’re only recovering when you are holding your correct alignment. That’s why we check our patients more frequently at the start of care.

It’s vital that you are maintaining your correct alignment for as long as possible.

Of course, you will recover the fastest if you are immediately corrected upon misaligning. 

Because remember, it’s not when you initially misalign that is the problem, the problem is when you misalign, and you stay misaligned.

The spine doesn’t have the chance to break down if it’s immediately corrected. 

Your spine will become stronger and more stable as you continue to keep it corrected.
