Crooked teeth? That probably means you (or your child) wore braces to correct their alignment. We also know crooked teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem. They can cause trouble with critical functions like chewing and breathing.
Anyone who has ever had braces understands how long it can take to move teeth. In most cases, braces will need to be worn for months, if not years, to fix crooked teeth. That perfect smile doesn’t just happen overnight. The orthodontist slowly applies pressure to move the teeth over many months.
Crooked spine? That probably means you (or your child) see a chiropractor to correct their spinal alignment. We also know that a crooked spine isn’t just a cosmetic problem. It can cause trouble with critical functions with just about anything involving the body’s nervous system causing a host of secondary conditions.
Just as a day of wearing braces doesn’t correct crooked teeth, one adjustment cannot fix a lifetime of spinal misalignment. A chiropractor uses the same approach to correct the misaligned spine as the orthodontist uses to correct misaligned teeth – slow and steady progress to yield lasting results. It has taken time, likely years, for the spine to shift away from its structural norm. It also takes time to retrain the body to get back to perfect positioning.
Stay patient. Stay diligent. Keep the faith.
Yours in good health,
