Get Better Faster: 5 ways people sabotage Chiropractic success

Your body, how healthy you keep it and how much change you are willing to make will determine how quickly you heal.
  4. Adjustments do not put your joints back in place! Your nervous system does that. Adjustments are delivered to restore motion that has been lost and facilitate better neurological function.
