Chiropractic adjustments both help to treat existing problems and provide maintenance to your body to prevent issues in the future. You can benefit from seeing a chiropractor if you’re currently experiencing pain or imbalances in your body, but there’s no need to stop as soon as you begin to feel better. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help to keep your body balanced and prevent certain health problems from reoccurring.
If you have had chiropractic adjustments before or someone has recommended them to you, you might be wondering how often you should have adjustment sessions. The answer is not one that will be the same for everyone. How often you can benefit from having a chiropractic adjustment depends on a variety of factors, including whether you are currently experiencing pain, what type of pain it is, your lifestyle, and whether you have any particular health issues that need to be managed.
Here are some of the factors to consider when thinking about how often to get a chiropractic adjustment.
The first thing to take into account when considering how often you should have a chiropractic adjustment is your current condition and how you feel. This might include things such as whether you’re currently in pain, whether it has been slowly building or if it is more sudden, if your mobility is limited, and whether you have just had surgery or other treatment. You don’t need to currently be in pain to benefit from chiropractic treatment, but it can be useful to take it into account if you are.
Short-term vs. Long-term
Whether you are looking for short-term relief or long-term results can also affect how often chiropractic adjustments could benefit you. There are several different types of adjustment that might be used to address any problems that you might be having. If you require adjustments after an injury, you might need more frequent adjustments but see your chiropractor less often once you have healed. Serious injuries could require adjustments more than once a week. Maintenance adjustments are more of a preventative treatment that you may only have every month or so, or perhaps every couple of weeks.
Maintenance adjustments will help you if you have more of a long-term plan in mind. They address not just a short-term problem of pain or injury but also help to keep your body balanced to prevent future problems too.
The length of time that you should leave between chiropractic adjustments depends on several factors. That’s why it’s important to discuss the issue with your chiropractor so that they can recommend a schedule that works for you and helps you to reach your goals. Your chiropractor will consider any problems that you are currently experiencing, as well as your primary reasons for seeking chiropractic treatment. They can help you to decide not just how often you should have chiropractic adjustments but how many you should have and whether a long-term maintenance plan could help you to keep pain away and improve your range of movement.
