How Long Does It Take to Recover from Surgery?

What Are Some Tips for a Successful Recovery?
You can do a few things to help ensure a successful recovery:
1. It’s important to follow the chiropractor’s instructions carefully. We will likely give you specific exercises or stretches to do at home, and you should do them as directed.
2. You should avoid activities that could put undue strain on your body, such as lifting heavy objects or participating in high-impact activities.
3. Eat a healthy diet and get plenty of rest to promote healing.
What Are the Risks of Not Recovering Properly?
If you don’t take the necessary steps to recover properly, you could be at risk for further injury.
