According to the American Chiropractic Association, 31 million Americans experience back pain at any given time. That’s a lot of people, and with our current society, that number will likely increase over time. No matter your occupation, whether it be a job requiring you to stand or sit all day, if you’re experiencing back, neck, or joint pain, you’re in the right place.
Chiropractic care is a great way to address these issues and find solutions to implement into your daily life to feel your best every day.
But how does a chiropractic adjustment work, and how often should you visit a chiropractor? Let’s take a look.
What is a chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is how chiropractors apply controlled pressure to the vertebrae to realign the spine and help relieve discomfort. This can help relieve headaches and neck pain, reduce nerve irritability, and improve general wellness.
How often should you get a chiropractic adjustment?
How often you see a chiropractor is based on how you feel, the work you do, how much stress you have going on, and on the plan your chiropractor creates for you in addressing your concerns. When you are just starting a new treatment plan, it's common to have adjustments multiple times a week. As your body begins to heal, that number could drop to just once a week. And if you are pain-free and simply want to maintain your lifestyle, you might only need to get an adjustment once or twice a month.
