When Should You Get a Chiropractic Adjustment?

When Should You Get a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic treatment is beneficial for a wide range of aches and pains. Some people seek treatment from their chiropractor in Sioux City for help managing a serious pain condition, such as arthritis or scoliosis, while others have routine adjustments as part of their preventative care.  Whether it’s for preventative adjustments or for relieving pain, one of the most common questions people ask is how often should they have adjustments? The answer depends on you, your specific reasons for the adjustments, and your chiropractor’s recommendations. However, in many situations, the scheduled treatments often depend on the reasons for receiving care. Here are a few of the most common types of scheduled treatments.

Prevention and Maintenance

Many people see their chiropractor regularly to prevent illness, avoid injuries, remain healthy, and to improve their quality of life. Adjustments as a part of preventative care generally happen less frequently than other types of chiropractic care. However, the treatment plan recommended by your chiropractor may include a wide range of other types of care, such as massage therapy, lifestyle changes, and exercise routines, all of which can be beneficial in regard to prevention.

Recovering from an Accident or Illness

One of the most common reasons people visit our chiropractor in Sioux City is for help in recovering from an accident, such as a car accident or a work related injury. These types of musculoskeletal injuries may require more frequent adjustments, sometimes two or more times a week when the injury is at its worst. As you begin to improve, your chiropractor will generally begin to gradually cut back on the frequency of your adjustments. Your chiropractic treatment plan may also include physical therapy and/or massage therapy.

The best thing about visiting your chiropractor is that not only will they discuss with you the recommended frequency of adjustments, but they will also provide you with a treatment plan that includes a range of other non-invasive, safe methods to relieve pain, reduce illness, and help you achieve overall better health.
