Why You Can Benefit From Monthly Chiropractic Adjustments

In this article, we’ll talk about what a chiropractic adjustment is, how it works and why you can benefits from monthly adjustments with Mobile Wellness Care.

Chiropractic adjustments can help provide effective pain relief for many.  Have you been thinking about visiting a chiropractor to help with your back and neck problems?  You might be wondering how frequently you’ll need to visit a reputable chiropractor so you can prepare a budget and schedule ahead.  Many people recommend getting a chiropractic adjustment every month, though how is this beneficial?

 

Why It's Wise to Get an Adjustment Every Month

What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic treatment by a licensed chiropractor. Your chiropractor will use pressure to manipulate joints in your body to realign your spine and reduce pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments complement traditional medical care you receive.

Chiropractic adjustments will vary from person to person.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

When doing sessions to treat acute pain and injury, it can take between 3-12 sessions to recover fully.  Correcting long-standing problems that have developed from things like poor posture or old injuries can require weekly or bi-weekly treatments for 2-3 months.  Whatever the circumstance is, after getting the underlying problem corrected, ongoing maintenance sessions are conducted to prevent the pain from coming back, along with preventing new injuries from forming.  Most sessions only take 10-30 minutes, with some maintenance sessions taking as little as 5 minutes!

Do Adjustments Hurt?

Worried adjustments are going to hurt?  Don’t be!!  While there may be some discomfort having areas adjusted that are already inflamed and painful, patients generally get substantial relief immediately following the adjustment.  It is also important to know that there may be some muscle and joint soreness following an adjustment.  It is completely normal, much like the soreness one can expect after a good workout, and generally the discomfort is considered mild.

How Monthly Adjustments Help

How often you need to see a chiropractor will depend on your ultimate goal and how severe your condition is. The chiropractor can assess this by taking your histroy and examining the misaligned areas of your body.

Symptom Care

Some patients only see a chiropractor when they are in pain.  For example, they strain their back lifing something, head to the chiropractor for an adjustment to relieve the pain and don’t come back until they are hurting again.  Cases where there is severe pain and muscle spasms can require more attention.  When that is the case, the body can be difficult to adjust and relief may initially be minimal and short-lived, requiring more visits before the symptoms resolve.

Corrective Wellness Care

Other patients not only want their pain gone, they want to fix the underlying problem so they can function and feel their best every day.  They understand that it is easier to stay healthy than to get healthy, so they take a proactive approach to keeping their spine and nervous system functioning optimally.  For most, this requires visits between 1-2 times per week for 1-3 months to correct the spine and then routine visits on at least a monthly basis to maintain their health and progress.

Whenever possible, visit your chiropractor before you feel any pain. That way you not only feel temporary pain relief, you also feel the physical and health benefits that reduce stress and risk for pain or injuries.

In summary, monthly visits (at minimum) are more advantageous for those who have demanding jobs or lifestyles that place a lot of stress on their bodies.  If your lifestyle involves lower stress levels, less than once a month may be adequate. We recommend talking with your chiropractor about your individual needs for a more accurate answer.

Why It's Wise to Get an Adjustment Every Month

Why Monthly Adjustments Can Benefit Conditions

Chiropractors are health professionals that can treat most neuromusculoskeletal conditions like:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Disc and joint pain
  • Whiplash
  • Muscle spasms
  • General pain coming from stressors like traveling or your job

There are also other reasons why people head to the chiropractor, such as:

  • Loss of flexibility or range of motion
  • Work and sports injuries
  • Auto accidents
  • You feel pinched nerves, such as a tingling or shooting pain
  • Uneven wear on the shoes, which shows that your spine is misaligned
  • Headaches
  • Overal health and wellness

Manipulation

Chiropractors conduct hands-on manipulation, focusing on the spine and  extremities, with the goal of helping their patients feel their best.

Adjustments

Adjustments help one feel more limber.  This is especially beneficial for athletes, those with physically demanding jobs and for those with desk jobs or driving jobs that require extended periods of sitting.

Realignment

With realignment, a chiropractor helps reduce muscle tension and joint inflammation. This will not only help with the pain, but it can also improve your energy levels. If you feel achy and sluggish, this is a great time to get a chiropractic adjustment.

Spinal Adjustment

Monthly Preventive Care

No one needs to be in pain when visiting a chiropractor. Preventative care is best.  While once a month is a good benchmark, it’s not a number for everyone, as it depends on several factors.

Budget and Schedule

Two additional factors to consider are your budget and schedule. For general chiropractic adjustments, treatments with In Home Mobile Chiropractic begin as little as $29 each!  With easy online appointments, our chiropractor can adjust to your needs with a simple click of the button.

Another factor to consider is how chiropractic adjustments impact your overall quality of life.  Remember, adjustments can improve your circulation, improve energy, help function in your nervous system, and ease general pain. Identify the things your lifestyle demands from your mind and body, and evaluate if these adjustments will help you function at your best.

We highly recommend monthly chiropractic adjustments as it pays off in the long run. It helps improve your quality of life as you get to work better and prevent injuries or pain that can result in a less productive life.

 

Wrapping It Up

When it comes to the frequency of your chiropractic adjustment, it ultimately depends on what you and your chiropractor decide is best. Monthly sessions are recommended for maintenance and preventative care, as it will boost your productivity and performance in the long run, especially if you have a demanding lifestyle or job!
