In order to stay healthy, how often should I see my chiropractor?

Chiropractic skeptics often pooh-pooh the idea of periodic chiropractic checkups after symptoms subside with the classic “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” line. This justification often results in a relapse into the original problem for countless patients.

How come?

Because biomechanical changes along the spine affecting nerves and muscles don’t heal like a cut, infection or some other self-resolving health condition. By the  time  spinal  problems  produce obvious  symptoms,  the  problem  has been  there  for  some  time—maybe even decades. Yet the symptom didn’t emerge until “last week, when I bent down to pick up the paper.”

Thankfully, a chiropractic care plan may produce symptomatic improvement in a matter of months, sometimes weeks. The patient is delighted, but we haven’t completed the retraining of the underlying muscles and soft tissues necessary for lasting spinal changes. That’s why the original problem is likely to return. It’s hard to know when, but it’s almost always after some major physical, chemical or emotional stress. I thought you fixed me,” laments the returning patient. Granted there was symptomatic improvement, but without some type of ongoing supportive care, the weakened area remains susceptible to reinjury.
