For What Duration Do Patients Have to See Chiropractors

A misconception that many people in Irvine have is that once you start chiropractic treatment you must continue it for life. Patients that begin treatment at Irvine Chiropractic Center are well aware that this is not the case. You are in control of when and how long treatment lasts. Irvine Chiropractic Center is able to help you and give recommendations but we do not control your decisions.

How Long Do I Need Chiropractic Care in Irvine?

Every patient enters our chiropractic office in Irvine for different reasons, so the length of treatment varies from patient to patient. A victim of a car crash and a person who is having slight pain in their neck will not need treatment for the same amount of time. That is the advantage of chiropractic care. Unlike medication, chiropractic care is tailored to you. A consultation with a Irvine chiropractor will provide an estimate for how long treatment will last. Even then, the way the body reacts to the treatment and the recovery time for the condition changes will differ for each patient.

Most of the time chiropractors recommend treatment until the symptoms are gone. After, it is up to you if treatment is needed. Back pain and other issues heal differently for each person and depend on the severity of the problem. People that are healthy often heal faster than those that aren't which plays a significant role as well.

Patients Always Maintain Control at Irvine Chiropractic Center

The decision is always your own to continue or stop treatment even if your symptoms are not completely gone. The chiropractor might explain what is likely to happen if you stop treatment or continue but the information provided will help you make the decision that is best for you. Chiropractors will provide thorough information during a consultation and no reliable chiropractor would force the patient to do something they do not wish.

Benefits of Long-Term Maintenance

Many patients that receive treatment decide to see the doctor for periodic maintenance after their symptoms have cleared up. There are advantages to this as it prevents problems from arising again. It is not uncommon for people to make appointments while experiencing no pain whatsoever. A long-term preventative treatment plan is often offered to patients after they have healed but the decision remains in the patient’s hands.
