How Long Do You Need To Go To The Chiropractor For?

How do you know when you are "done" with your chiropractic care? It all depends on what your goals are. Some people only want their pain to go away. Once the symptoms are resolved, then it is time for the case to be released. Others want spinal correction. This is the care that goes past symptom relief to make more lasting changes to the spinal alignment. Sort of like straightening teeth at the orthodontist's office. And lastly, some will use chiropractic for its health and wellness benefits and visit the chiropractor for periodic spinal check-ups to remove nerve stress, balance musculature and reduce degenerative friction on their spinal bones. These people will use chiropractic for the rest of their lives on a preventative basis. Remember the choice is always up to you. You don't have to go to the chiropractor the rest of your life, unless you choose too!


Pregnancy and Chiropractic Plug:  Speaking of length of chiropractic care time, one of the most popular lengths of treatment time is 9 months.  Why 9 months?  That is the amount of time that pregnancy lasts for.  Yes, chiropractic is becoming more and more popular with pregnant women due to the all natural, drug free health benefits and chiropractic's ability to ease or eliminate the many discomforts that come along with Pregnancy. In addition, many chiropractors, myself included are certified Webster's Pregnancy Technique users. Webster's is a soft tissue technique that helps to remove uterine constraint and provide a more comfortable pregnancy.
