Why Do I Have to Come Back?

"Why do I have to come back?"

Chiropractic care takes time and repetition

Time – The same way a cut takes time to heal, your body, especially the spine, requires time for recovery. Soft tissue such as tendons, ligaments, and discs often require several weeks to get better.

Repetition – Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t go to the gym just once. Perfect smiles are not created by wearing braces for a week. Eating one healthy meal does not count as a healthy diet. Spinal adjustments are required on a regular basis in order to “undo the damage” and reduce the stress we constantly place on our bodies.

Care Plans

Dr. Smith tries his best to get patients well as soon as possible and not drag out long care plans. While chiropractic care starts out at a high frequency of visits it is usually not necessary to see patients multiple times per week for a long time. As your body adapts to the structural corrections your visit frequency reduces as well as your symptoms. Remember, symptoms may be what brought you into our office but merely reducing symptoms is not the goal; that’s just a benefit of BioStructural Correction.

Q: "How often do I need to come?"
A: Your care plan will be tailored to your specific case.

This plan is based on several factors including but not limited to:

  • Age
  • Duration of Secondary Conditions
    • how long you’ve been experiencing pain and/or symptoms
  • Number and Severity of Structural Deviations
    • results of the pictures we took before your exam
  • Number and Severity of Subluxations (the Primary Condition)
    • what was adjusted during your visit

A general idea for new patients: 3 Phases

  • Acute (pain) Phase
    • 2x/week for 2-6 weeks
  • Correction Phase
    • 1x/week for 4 weeks
  • Protection Phase
    • 1x/month to prevent relapse or additional injury

Once BioStructural Corrections have been made and symptoms are reduced/eliminated, Dr. Smith recommends that patients come once every four weeks to maintain their progress and fend off the stresses of everyday life.
