An experienced chiropractor recognises that everyone’s treatment regime may be different. Every patient must be assessed and treated as an individual to ensure that their unique needs are addressed.
Some of the issues that determine how often you may need to visit your chiropractor include:
What you want from Chiropractic care
Some people choose chiropractic care to help with the relief of their symptoms, whilst others have extended goals of pain relief, working towards optimising their spinal function and or maintaining their spine as best as is possible.
How long have you experienced issues?
Generally, the longer you have had problems, the more your body has adapted trying to deal with these problems. This may mean that you require visits that are more frequent or a longer duration of care. It may also mean that the proposed outcome of your care may be altered.
Factors that complicate treatment
Many factors may affect our recommendations on the frequency and duration of your care. For example, previous surgeries, previous traumas, postural changes and degenerative /arthritic issues may play a role in determining our recommendations.
Your everyday lifestyle
Put simply, a proactive lifestyle that is high in good physical, nutritional and emotional stresses will most likely translate to less frequent care.
Taking into account previous care & treatment
When you begin chiropractic care at our clinic, the previous care you have had with other chiropractors will obviously be taken into consideration.
At Catalyst Chiropractic, after we have completed a thorough history and examination, we discuss the frequency and duration of your care with you before starting any treatment. Our care is patient focused – we realise that it is all about you. We respect your decisions. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care will always remain up to you.
