One of the most common questions that I get from patients is how long it will take for them to get better?
The truthful answer is we don't know. First and foremost there are never guarantees of results. Just like if you go to a oncologist, they will never guarantee that they can get rid of your cancer.
However, we can make suggestions based on science. The upper neck area is held together by muscles, soft tissues, and ligaments. If you think about it, joints that are held together by soft tissues, muscles, and ligaments take time to heal. The average shoulder injury with a operation can take from 6 months to a year to regain even some sense of normalcy.
That is why we tell patients to give it 6 months to see the effect of treatment on their bodies. Even with braces, the average time it takes to correct alignment can be from 6 months to 2 years.
