Acute Vs Chronic Conditions

A.M.I.T. ® Explanation

Acute injuries are injuries or symptoms occurring under six weeks in duration.

Chronic conditions are any injuries or symptoms present for six weeks or longer.

If an acute injury is not corrected within six weeks of occurrence, the central nervous system if forced to adapt other tissues to protect the injured or symptomatic tissue. Eventually, the adapted tissues can become the next site for injury or symptom. A question that must be asked with any symptom; is the problem at the symptom site or is the symptom presenting the site of adaptation?

Acute injury treatment is directed at the site of injury. Chronic conditions often require treatment somewhere else in the body, which is always the area of an old injury. Unless old injuries are treated, the symptomatic area will never heal.
