How Often Do I Need Chiropractic Adjustments?

When it comes to chiropractic treatment, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Each patient is built differently and has a different routine that might put varying levels of pressure on the spine, the joints, and the rest of the body. People should not look at chiropractic treatment as a one-and-done solution to back pain, but, instead, look at chiropractic treatment as an ongoing tool to use when your body responds to the abuse you put it through. Chiropractic adjustments should be a part of your active recovery plan, especially if you engage in high-impact activities. Think about your body as a spring that is slowly but constantly being pressed downward. We have to decompress, at the very least every once in a while, even if you’re feeling healthy. The truth is some patients may like to come in twice a week while others might come in once a month or once a quarter. It’s really up to you and your chiropractor.
