Chiropractic Is an Ongoing Process

By Paul Rothbart

A person has a skin blemish, goes to the dermatologist, gets a diagnosis, a treatment, maybe some medication. It goes away. The patient is done with that doctor. Likewise with a fracture, it heals, you don't need to see that doctor anymore. Let's say a person's back hurts. He decides to see a chiropractor (a very good decision, by the way). He gets an adjustment and feels better. The job is done, he doesn't need to go back, right? Well, it doesn't work that way when it comes to spinal adjustments. It sometimes takes time and multiple visits for chiropractic to work to full effectiveness. My wife has had back problems for years and sees her chiropractor every other week for relief. Here are the reasons why regular chiropractic adjustments are a good idea.

Keep Healing

The pain may go away after a visit or two, but that doesn't mean the damage has fully healed. Research has shown that the body needs more time to fully repair itself after the first treatments. Ligaments and muscles along the spine take some time to heal completely. The first adjustment will start the soft tissues on the path to healing. Future appointments make sure they continue to heal. 

Prevention of Flare-Ups

Unfortunately, back problems tend to recur. The back is heavily involved in most physical activities; without regular maintenance, it is very easy for the same tissues to take on damage. Continued treatment will keep those tissues healing and prevent reinjury.

Preventing Possible Future Problems

Regular chiropractic appointments will keep the spine in alignment and help prevent future injuries. Many occupations can cause back pain. Sitting at a desk all day can be just as harmful, if not more, than a heavy labor job like construction. Keeping the spine in top health is a big part of avoiding injury.

It Saves Money

By maintaining a healthy spine with regular appointments, you will actually save money by avoiding more serious injuries that could require more intensive treatments that would be very expensive.

Just Feel Better Overall

By seeing a chiropractor for regular appointments, your health will be improved. With a properly aligned spine, inflammation may be reduced, damaged tissues heal. This leads to less pain, fewer headaches, and more energy. It's a feeling of overall better health.

Chiropractic has helped many people with back and joint pain. To fully reap the benefits, regular appointments are recommended. Visit The Joint Chiropractic, where you can get regular adjustments for a very fair price.
