Proper rest, exercise, and good nutrition are especially important during the healing process. While there aren’t any shortcuts to speed your body’s natural healing process, there is a lot you can do to give yourself the best chance of a quick recovery.
One way to assist healing is to learn proper sitting and lifting methods. Specific exercises may be suggested to help re-train the muscles that support your spine. Proper rest is also an important aspect of the healing process. Avoid Sleeping on your stomach whenever possible, for additional healing results. During the healing process, proper diet and nutrition are more important than ever. Make sure you eat balanced meals, ideally low in saturated fat. For optimal results, be certain to keep your appointments and follow your chiropractic doctor’s recommendations.
