How Long Will I Need Chiropractic Care For?
Dec 21, 2016

How Long Will I Need Chiropractic Care For | AICA ConyersMany new patients will ask our Conyers Chiropractors, “How long will it take until I experience complete pain relief” or “How many visits it will take before I am able to return to their normal routine.”

Anyone who has worked with the Chiropractors at AICA Conyers knows that they patient is always in control and any recommendations we offer around treatment are subject to change.

Chiropractic Care in Conyers, GA

Trying to answer a patient’s question around how long it will take before they are completely healed is difficult because it completely depends on the circumstances.

A patient who has hurt their back from awkwardly lifting some type of light object is going to heal at a completely different rate than someone else who is involved in an auto accident.

The only way to understand how long it will take before you are able to recover from some type of injury or chronic condition is to schedule a consultation with one of our Conyers Chiropractors.

It’s not uncommon for different patients to respond differently to various treatment solutions we offer, so even if two different patients have the same injury, the amount of time it takes for each person to heal will likely differ.

Most Chiropractors will offer regular treatments until the patient is no longer experiencing any type of painful symptom, where the patient then determines whether or not they want to continue to receive adjustments for other health purposes.

The amount of time it takes before patients are of back pain, tension headaches, joint inflammation, or any other type of condition we treat completely depends on the extent of the condition, as well as the physical characteristics of the patient.

If someone is in great shape, exercises on a regular basis, and maintains a healthy diet, they will likely recover faster than someone who lives a sedentary lifestyle.

The Choice It Ultimately Up To You

The other reality around treatment length is that you as the patient are ultimately responsible for determining how long you’d like to receive treatment for.

Even if you chose to end treatment before your symptoms and condition have been addressed, no one can force you to do anything you don’t want.

Your Chiropractor may want to give you an outline of what may happen as a result of this decision so that you can make an educated choice over what’s best for your health.

Why Long-Term Chiropractic Care Makes Sense For Most Patients

There are a long list of health benefits associated with receiving regular spinal adjustments. It’s common for most patients to continue their examinations with us, long after their original injury or condition has healed.

The reason for this is because of how well adjustments:

  • Allow your body to maintain complete stability
  • Improve immune performance
  • Support healthy circulation
  • Increase flexibility
  • Prevent other critical health conditions from developing over time

A long-term preventative treatment plan is usually advised after a patient has healed, but this is also completely the patient’s decision.
