Our goal is to eliminate pain and restore the body to optimal health.  The human body consists of millions of tiny cells that combine together to form tissue.  The type of cell determines the type of tissue such as fat, muscle, bone, ect.  When an injury occurs to any part of the body, tissue damage occurs.  The healing process of the body is dependent on many factors including the severity, location and extent of the tissue damage, age, overall physical health and the type of intervention (medical treatment). 

Age is very important in determining the length of time it takes for an individual to heal.  Children are very resilient.  Their tissue is much more durable and pliable than adults.  This is why children can get hurt and they are running around again a couple of minutes later.  Adults tissue is more rigid and less flexible.  This is because adults are generally under more stress than children and do not eat as well and live a more sedentary lifestyle.  Stress causes the release of a hormone called cortisol.  Cortisol is a natural hormone that attempts to restore the bodies normal functions.  However, in the process, cortisol increases the blood pressure, blood sugar and reduces the immune systems response.  Generally, reducing a person's overall health increasing their susceptibility to injury and illness.

The cells in damaged tissue release cytokines (chemical signals).  The release of these chemical signals is the primary cause of pain.  Pain indicates that tissue damage has been done and invokes a response from the immune system.  The immune system responds by sending white blood cells called phagocytes to the tissue to remove the damaged cells and stimulates the generation of new cells to replace the damaged ones.  Most people believe that pain is bad, however, if pain was not present then the body would not know that their was a problem and the problem would snowball until it lead to a major dysfunction.  

Unfortunately, damaged tissue only heals up to 75-90% of its original strength.  This makes the tissue more susceptible to reoccuring injuries and the development of chronic conditions.  Therefore, maintenance treatment may be required after symptoms have diminished.  Missing appointments or discontinuing care prematurely can invite a relapse.  That's why many patients elect to continue with regular chiropractic checkups to maintain their progress.  How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you.  As a chiropractor, we use many different kinds of adjustments in combination with therapeutic modalities and vitamin supplements to promote the healing process.
