When, Why and How Often You Need Chiropractic Care

Think chiropractic care is only for people with back pain? Think again.

While chiropractors specialize in treating chronic back and neck pain, they also treat patients recovering from a wide variety of musculoskeletal injuries and counsel their patients on healthy eating, exercise, lifestyle changes and more.

Do you need chiropractic care?

Chiropractic adjustments are ideal for patients suffering from chronic back or neck pain, especially after an accident. But you don’t have to be in constant pain in order to benefit from a visit to your chiropractor.

If you experience headaches regularly, tend to get sore after a day of chores, or are often uncomfortable due to poor posture, consider scheduling an appointment. Research published by the National Institutes of Health shows that chiropractic care can be more effective than standard medical care in addressing these types of problems.

How often should chiropractic adjustments be performed?

How often you need to see your chiropractor will depend on the severity and type of your condition. If you are experiencing severe pain, you will likely need an adjustment at least once a week. Patients who use chiropractic care as a way to maintain overall health and wellness often find that a monthly adjustment is enough to do the trick.

As the American Chiropractic Society explains, the benefits of chiropractic care can extend far beyond pain relief. Just like proper diet and exercise, chiropractic care should be considered part of a healthy, proactive lifestyle.
