Regular Visits are a follow-up to your first and second visits, and usually involve chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue work. The frequency of your regular visits will have been determined on your first visit, but will continue to be monitored each time you come in and tailored to your progress and rate of healing.
Generally will be between 10 -15 minutes per appointment.
Each chiropractic care visit builds on the previous one like the regular workout at a gym. Miss a visit and your body can lose the healing momentum required to have you recover quickly, therefore it is important to follow the recommendations of your chiropractor. You can’t always tell if you need care solely by how you feel. You need to trust the expertise of your chiropractor in determining when care is required.
Depending on the nature of a patient specific problem, a few visits to our chiropractic care office should help the patient feel noticeably better. As a general rule, within 1 to 4 weeks of starting a chiropractic care treatment program for non-complex musculoskeletal conditions, the patient should typically feel a 40% to 80% reduction in pain. The frequency of visits to our office should decrease as the patient’s pain and function improve.
Chiropractic Program Plans
At ChiroAcuHealth we will do everything in our power to help our patients feel better as fast as possible with as few chiropractic treatments as necessary, ultimately reducing care to an as-needed follow-up plan. During our treatment plans we will also give advice on how to avoid future problems by evaluating lifestyle activities, ergonomics, posture, orthotics, and/or diet. Proactive recommendations include exercises and stretches; ergonomic tools like back supports, belts, or pillows; home rehabilitation tools like foam roller, elastic bands; orthotics; and/or dietary support.
In the absence of progressive worsening of a condition during chiropractic care, a common chiropractic care program is 3 times per week for 2 to 4 weeks, followed by a re-evaluation. If improvement is noted, a tapering of chiropractic treatment frequency is appropriate while introducing self-help, home-based recommendations as noted above. With an absence in improvement, treatment should be changed or other therapy options introduced.
