Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

How Long Do Patients See Chiropractors in Lititz

Family Chiropractors

One belief that many people pick up is that once you begin chiropractic treatment for a specific health issue, you must continue with that treatment forever. Anyone that has visited chiropractors in Lititz knows that the patient is always in control and any recommendations regarding treatment length aren’t set in stone.

How Long Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

In reality, there is no concrete answer to the question of how long you need chiropractic care, because every situation is different. If patient A tweaked her lower back picking up a basket of laundry and patient B injured several cervical vertebrae in a car accident, the treatment plans and lengths will be quite different.

The only way to really know for sure is to book a consultation with a Lititz Chiropractor and start your treatment. It’s not uncommon for different people to respond differently to the same treatments, so even if two people have the same issue the treatment length can vary. Most of the time, chiropractors will recommend regular treatments until the patient is no longer symptomatic, then it’s up to you if you want to continue.

The length of time it takes to eliminate your back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain or whatever is ailing you depends on the severity of the problem, and your own physical make up. If you are in good physical condition, and take care of yourself, you’ll probably heal faster than someone who doesn’t.

Patients Always Maintain Control

Even if you decide that you want to discontinue treatment before your symptoms have completely gone, no one is going to try and force you to stay. You may be given a breakdown of what is likely to happen and why it is important for your healing to continue, but no reputable chiropractor would try to make a patient do something they don’t want to do. This is part of the reason why most chiropractors are so forthcoming with information at the beginning of the process.

Benefits of Long-Term Maintenance

It’s important to note that many patients will opt for periodic maintenance even after chiropractors have relieved their initial symptoms. It’s not unusual to see patients coming into the office that have no pain or discomfort at all. This is how you keep those underlying issues from popping up again, and causing trouble like they did the first time. A long-term preventative treatment plan is usually advised after you’re healed, but this is also completely the patient’s decision.
