When it comes to chiropractic care, the frequency of visits to the chiropractor will vary depending on your individual needs. Generally, you may be advised to come every two to six weeks for an adjustment. After completing the recommended care plan, your chiropractor may suggest that you begin with “maintenance care”. This will be different for everyone, depending on their lifestyle.
A typical treatment plan usually lasts between nine and twelve sessions, although some chiropractors may recommend more or less depending on the diagnosis of the pain or injury. For some people, weekly sessions will be the most beneficial. For others, bimonthly visits will work just as well. It is important to incorporate other routines to get the most out of your treatment.
Rehabilitative care visits, such as those recovering from a recent injury or accident, may take place several times a month. People with chronic pain may only need to visit their chiropractor once or twice a month or when they experience a pain attack. A study on the use of chiropractors in Australia showed that they are the most sought-after complementary health professionals.
