Going to the chiropractor too much can have serious effects. It can cause a decrease in range of motion, which is very problematic for people who exercise and need to be flexible. So how often should you go to the chiropractor? The answer is different for each patient, but you should schedule appointments as needed. Weekly or monthly visits may provide the most benefit.
I've been seeing a chiropractor for a couple of months and I feel better before the adjustment than after. Mel, a chiropractor's treatment recommendations often depend on the adjustment technique you use. I wonder if you've ever considered a different type of chiropractic adjustment (different chiropractors perform different techniques). I know what you mean and, although I agree 95%, there are exceptions when the chiropractor knows what he is doing and can DEMONSTRATE the results.
However, I have also noticed that chiropractic adjustments performed correctly and at the right time contribute to strengthening the support structures of the spine, reducing frequent clicks and contributing to stability. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, many patients can also benefit from other services offered by their office, such as massages, nutritional counseling and physical therapy. This is a complicated question that will find different answers among chiropractors for a couple of reasons. Chiropractors are often not taken seriously because the patient does not understand the need to repeat appointments and perform multiple follow-ups.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, low back pain affects 31 million Americans at any given time. As for what you can do, you can always check with another local chiropractor to get a second (or third) opinion on your condition. You can now work to strengthen your immune system through chiropractic adjustments and the use of ancillary treatments to improve your overall health outcomes. I have been to different chiropractors for the past 8 years and this is the first one that has done more than just adapt to relieve pain.
