How long does it take to realign your spine?

Chiropractic appointments, and the time it takes to realign the spine through a chiropractic adjustment, tend to be quite short for the most part. People with more serious injuries can expect longer recovery times. Usually, people with broken bones or fractures will see a healing time that ranges from 5 to 6 weeks. If the result of the injury was a ligament or tendon tear in the spine, improvement may take 6 to 8 weeks.

The longest recovery time will be for an injury related to the discs and cartilage of the spine, which could take 3 months or more. Depending on the extent of the spinal injury, patients typically experience a 40-80% reduction in pain after their first visit. However, overall improvement occurs within 1 to 4 weeks of starting chiropractic therapy. Examples include compression wear, postural pumps, and inversion tables.

The problem with these devices is that they can treat pain in the short term, but they don't necessarily help align the spine in the long term.
