Why We Recommend Frequent Visits

When patients begin chiropractic care chiropractors will frequently recommend up to three visits per week or more. We're often asked how we arrive at this visit schedule.

Since the patient is doing the healing, not the chiropractor, everyone responds differently. Predicting the best course of care is a combination of education, experience and keen observation skills.

A chiropractic adjustment applies a specific force, at a specific location, in a specific direction to assist your body in "righting" itself. Only your body knows where a particular vertebra is supposed to be! Our job is to supply energy at the right time and place so your body can use it.

We've found that frequent visits at the beginning of care, balances the repetition needed to establish a healthier spinal pattern with fitting chiropractic care into a busy life. We've tried more and less frequent care schedules. But for most new patients, up to three times a week seems to produce the best results in the shortest amount of time.
