If you’ve experienced a loss of function or mobility due to an injury, you need fast relief so you can get back to your normal life. Along with care from your primary care physician, chiropractic services are a great way to boost your recovery and get you back to optimal functioning. If you’ve never seen a chiropractor before, you probably have a lot of questions about how chiropractic works.

One of the most common questions we hear from new patients is “How often will I need to come in for treatments?” The answer is…well…it just depends. The following factors all play a role in how often we’ll recommend appointments:

Type of Injury

Different types of injury require different treatments, in the same way, that you wouldn’t treat a paper cut the same way you would a head injury. We will assess your situation and recommend a frequency of visits that will promote healing without risking further injury.

Severity of Injury

An acute injury will require a different frequency of visits than a chronic injury or an injury that was sustained long ago. Only an exam and health history can reveal the severity of your injuries, so a personalized treatment plan can be developed. This will typically involve more frequent visits at first, gradually decreasing until a maintenance schedule is established.

Patient Expectations

What you expect in terms of recovery and abilities after your injury will also play a part in setting the frequency of your chiropractor visits. Some patients opt for an aggressive treatment plan with more frequent visits, while others prefer a slower approach. A qualified chiropractor will always work with you to develop a treatment plan that is safe and comfortable.
