How Often Should I Have a Chiropractic Adjustment?


The goal of chiropractic treatment is to help correct structural alignment and improve the physical function of the body. A common question asked by patients is, “How often should I have a chiropractic adjustment?” How often you have a chiropractic adjustment depends on how serious your condition is, and your chiropractor’s treatment plan.  You and are doctor need to determine what is the right frequency of appointments for you until you are healed.

A chiropractor will not always be able to tell you how long your condition will take to heal because no one can predict how a patient will respond to treatment. Your treatment should be assessed every 3-6 weeks to determine if you need more or fewer visits.

When you first start your chiropractic treatment, you may want to see your doctor for multiple appointments per week. Within the first 1-4 weeks of treatment, a patient will start to feel much better. If you have a minor problem, the condition may be reduced in this time period significantly and the frequency of your visits to your chiropractor can now be reduced.

Patients with more serious conditions will need to visit their chiropractor up to 12 times in a 3-4 month period. This does seem like a lot and it can be difficult to squeeze into your already busy schedule but to see results quickly, you need to commit to these visits. If your pain persists after the first 4 weeks, let your chiropractor know so he or she can adjust your treatment plan and the frequency of your visits accordingly.

For those patients that are seeking chiropractic adjustments to maintain their health and use it as precautionary method, once every few weeks is enough. It is common for people to get adjusted once every few weeks even once they have healed from their condition.

Our doctors will meet with you to discuss your treatment plan and the frequency of your visits. To book a chiropractic appointment with Chiro-Med, contact us.
