While maintenance care is recommended to keep your spine in tip top shape, by no means does this mean a daily, weekly or even monthly trip to the chiropractor’s office is required.
If your pain is alleviated following an adjustment, an occasional visit for maintenance care may be recommended. If your pain is not alleviated, additional visits may be necessary.
Bottom line, each patients care should be individualized. A reputable chiropractor will not force high pressured up-sells for lengthy contracts on every patient they see, but they will offer recommended follow-up visits based on each patients particular health and wellness situation.
And remember, preventive care is far less expensive than dealing with the health issues that arise from not taking care or yourself.
