One of the greatest myths surrounding chiropractic medicine is that when a patient undergoes chiropractic treatment they will have to continue see their chiropractor forever. It’s true that a chiropractic adjustment will likely leave you feeling better after a visit, and the extent and scope of injury will determine the amount of chiropractic medicine needed to heal. Once you feel the amazing effects that chiropractic medicine can have on the body, you will likely appreciate the care you receive and continue to go for the many benefits.
When it comes to chiropractic medicine, everyone is different. Chiropractic medicine can help alleviate the pain and inflammation due to injury and improve the health of the vertebra and the discs. When it comes to injury, it’s the extent of the injury, the severity of the pain, and the overall health of a patient’s body that determine the amount visits required to heal and also maintain optimal health.
When you first decide to undergo chiropractic medicine it’s likely that the initial visit or visits will focus alleviating symptoms of pain and discomfort. This can take time, and the amount of time it takes depends on the patient. Once symptoms are alleviated, a likely treatment is corrective care; corrective care will help to alleviate the problem at the source, putting your body into proper alignment and helping a patient achieve optimal physical health. Any chiropractic care after injury and alignment issues are corrected is maintenance.
A patient’s ability to take care of themselves at home, perform any necessary exercises, and stick to a schedule determined by their chiropractor at Larson Chiropractic will determine the scope of chiropractic medicine needed to heal.
