The Recovery Train
If a train leaves Philadelphia heading south at 45 mph and another train leaves DC headed north at 60 mph, at what point will the 2 trains meet? I’m sure there’s an answer to that, and Wendy could answer it (she was a Bel Air High School math teacher previous to her career as Mrs. Spine). What we do know is that in the world of mass transportation and word problems, things are moving in different directions at different speeds on different time tables. Health and recovery are much the same.
Be your pain come from an auto accident, fall down the stairs, sleeping wrong or just time, the devolution of your condition is moving in a downward spiral at specific rate; and won’t stop until acted upon. Often times, the speed of disease is faster than the speed of healing. And even then, the downward spiral has to be slowed before it can be stopped. It has to be stopped before it can be reversed. In other words, it takes time to get better; and sometimes things may even get a little worse before they get better.
Health and recovery is a process, not an event. No matter what’s wrong- whether its a herniated disc, whiplash, TMJ problems, our Bel Air chiropractors, acupuncturist and massage therapist can fix it. It just takes a little time, patience, and consistency.
