Paint’s Not Dry
You’re a few weeks into your care plan and you’re feeling better.
You want to get back to your routine as soon as possible.
There’s a lot to do around the house, you’ve got a family to
take care of and you want to get back to the gym. There’s an urgency to
start ‘living’ again. Problem is, the paint’s not dry
It’s Not Uncommon to Feel ‘Done’
It’s not uncommon to feel ‘done’ after a few adjustments.
When your innate healing abilities kick in, you might look
and feel remarkably new – like a fresh coat of paint. But
like a fresh coat of paint, looks can be deceiving.What
seems completely dry (healed) on the surface may still have a few tacky
areas underneath. If you jump the gun and try to re-hang the
fixtures, you might ruin the finish and need to start all over
Thorough healing requires time. Even though you feel like
your old self after a few Chiropractic sessions, it’s no green light to
go back to your old activities. The stabilizing phase of care (where
you feel so good you wonder why you’re still coming in) is where the
‘paint curing’ happens. Give your body the time it needs to
completely dry and you’ll be happier with your end results.
