How Long Should I See a Chiropractor After a Car Accident in Chicago?
The reasons why people seek chiropractic treatment are many.
Some use the skills of a chiropractor for back adjustments or to align the vertebrae for preventive care. Others want help managing serious pain conditions, such as scoliosis or whiplash.
Different chiropractors have different philosophies about adjustments. The goal of some chiropractors is to help you get back to your old health, and then they don’t necessarily expect to see you again, unless you are in more trouble, have an accident, or are in pain.
Other chiropractors believe in a regular preventive maintenance program that can range from one visit every week, with an adjustment made only if needed, to one visit every two months. This is a very common practice among athletes or elite athletes. Some chiropractors only recommend that they visit the chiropractor only when they feel they need an adjustment.
How Often Do I Need to Visit the Chiropractor?
Grandview Health Chiropractors can treat severe pain or mild pain. Severe pain requires intensive chiropractic treatment. An example is if you suffer or have an injury that causes severe pain such as an accident injury, then you will likely need intensive treatment.
This could involve up to two or three adjustments a week, with a gradual decrease in the number of weekly visits that could last a year or more. It depends on your condition, how severe the damage is to your body, and your level of pain, combined with how well you respond to chiropractic care.
If you don’t start to see improvement within a few weeks, the treatment is probably not working and you may want to consider other options, such as a different treatment using a different approach or combining chiropractic treatments with therapeutic massage and even rehabilitation.
Because different chiropractors use different techniques (for example, traditional push adjustments as opposed to low force adjustments), you may need several treatments where Grandview Health Chiropractors uses different chiropractic techniques to find the best treatment for you or your partner. Let your body and your injury respond.
