Healing is a Journey, Not an Event

How soon will I feel better? How long until this goes away? Will it get worse before it gets better?

We get these questions a lot, and I wish there was a quick and easy way to answer them. The truth is, I would love it if healing was linear, ie. if it looked like one of those “hockey stick” graphs of exponential growth and improvement from the beginning. Granted, we do take care of some cases who respond that way, but more often healing resembles a zig-zagged bumpy line with ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and bad. The bright side is that we are still trending UP overtime! Of course we want improvement in symptoms early and quickly, but as with anything, healing takes time. We monitor progress at every step along your healing journey to make sure we prepare for and deal with any bumps along the way.
