Can I Speed The Healing Process?

Proper rest, exercise and good nutrition are especially important during the healing process.

  • While there aren’t any shortcuts to speed your body’s natural healing process, there’s a lot you can do to give yourself the best chance of a quick recovery.
  • Learn proper sitting and lifting methods.  Specific exercises may be suggested to help retrain the muscles that support your spine.
  • Proper rest is an important aspect of the healing process, too.  Get the appropriate amount of rest your body needs, and avoid sleeping on your stomach.
  • During the healing process, proper nutrition is more important than ever.  Make sure you get balanced meals, and if you’re overweight, now would be a good time to slim down and reduce unnecessary stresses to your spine.
  • Perhaps most important of all, keep you appointments and follow your chiropractic doctor’s recommendations for optimum results.
