One of the most frequently asked questions in a chiropractor’s office is, “How often should I get adjusted?”
As much as we'd like to give you a straight forward answer, it's a little trickier than that. Chiropractic is a customized wellness experience that offers specific treatment for each patient. There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment. The beauty of it is that it’s personalized to your specific needs. Unlike a prescription or other forms of treatment, our treatment plans are designed to correct the areas of your body where an irregularity has occurred.
When you first begin chiropractic treatments, your chiropractor will perform a physical and may even take x-rays to determine the severity of your concerns. Based on the results of those tests, your personal treatment plan is developed. Your chiropractor will explain how many visits per week will be needed during your initial phase of healing. There are people who come in once a week and others three times a week, this frequency will change throughout your visits.
One of the most important things after your treatment is maintenance. Keeping your body well means you’re able to enjoy each day with more mobility and less pain. Be sure to ask you chiropractor how your treatment frequency will change as you approach maintenance.
