How frequently must I attend?
Frequency depends totally on the patient. Each patient is unique and has different needs. We tailor care to each patient’s individual needs. We are not a “one-size-fits-all” practice… nor are we a “wham bam thank ya ma’am.” Depending on your healthcare needs and goals, we strive to achieve optimal health and wellness with all of our patients. Many patients ask, “do I have to go forever?” The answer is no – once we have achieved your health goals, most patients transition to wellness care and their visits become less frequent. Most patients of chiropractic care, however, will tell you that they continue care because they really enjoy it!
Can chiropractic care help me?
One of the main goals of chiropractic care is to remove subluxations (spinal misalignment causing nerve interference) to allow the body’s nervous system to function optimally. Chiropractic care can help with a multitude of healthcare issues, although it is not always curative to all health related issues. Chiropractic care directly affects the body’s nervous system – which is the master system of the body – by removing harmful environmental and stressful stimuli and allowing the body innately to heal itself.
