Prolonged healing can cause frustration. The time it takes to get better from an injury or illness can sometimes feel like an eternity - and unfortunately, science shows that if you BELIEVE that strongly enough, you can slow or completely stop your recovery process in its tracks.
The subconscious mind is greatly influenced by your thoughts and beliefs. Negative thoughts like "I'll never get better," or "I'm just getting old," can take hold of your psyche, triggering your body to execute those commands whether you mean them or not. There's something to be said about protecting your health against stinkin' thinkin'.
The conscious part of our brain needs a nudge towards the healing direction every now and then... not just to keep you hopeful, but to keep your 'INNERGY' working towards its ultimate goal, to make you well. Your Chiropractor is here to give you that nudge when needed.
