Let’s say you’re doing house work and hammering away when all of a sudden you miss the nail and bang your thumb instead. Ultimately with a little TLC and time the pain will subside and your wound will heal.
Now let’s say instead you insist on hitting that same thumb over and over again, despite the best therapeutic efforts the healing will not be able to ‘take’ because you are repeating the trauma.
Likewise is common for patients who have recurring vertebral subluxations or misalignments of spinal segments that lead to nerve irritation — Even after receiving the best chiropractic care. In many of these situations it is not the care they are receiving but the repetitive lifestyle habits outside of the office. For example you come in for your weekly chiropractic adjustment then go home and start your favorite show only to fall asleep on the couch. Or you come and get adjusted and then on the way home you stop for some fast food. The “resubluxating cycle” will continue until you stop “hammering your thumb.”
Honestly life generates enough subluxating stress without you adding to it. If your adjustments are not holding well maybe something in your lifestyle needs to be addressed.
