If chiropractic works how come I have to go for the rest of my life?

If chiropractic works how come you have to go forever? I get asked this question often. People think once you go to a chiropractor you have to go for the rest of your life. Well, the short answer to this question is...You don't !!! You don't have to go for the rest of your life the choice is yours.

In my office I give patients a choice. Some people just want relief for the pain that brought them in. That usually takes a few visits (chiropractic works). Then they leave and call when they are in pain again. That's OK. That's what they choose and I support their choice. A second option would be to go on a program of corrective care. That gives the body time to correct the problem and restore spinal motion. It allows time for ligaments, muscles, discs and tissues to heal. It allows the body to regenerate. That usually takes a few weeks to a few months. Many people choose this option but some don't and that's OK.

I understand that every patient has a different health goal. The last option is wellness care. Wellness care involves getting your spine and nervous system checked periodically to keep your body functioning optimally. Much like eating well and exercising, removing interference in your body works best if you do it consistently. This is the program where you have to commit to your health for an extended period or a lifetime if you choose. Some patients choose this option most don't and that's OK.

My job is to lay out and explain the options for you. In the end you get to choose.

I am here to serve your needs and I support your choice no matter what plan you choose. If I can help you please call 516-520-1605.
