How Often Should I Get a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A spinal adjustment is a non-invasive procedure our chiropractor performs to correct misalignments or dysfunctions in the spine. Using their hands or specialized tools, the chiropractor applies controlled, gentle force to the vertebrae to restore proper alignment, mobility, and nerve function. This movement can alleviate pain, improve joint function, and enhance well-being.

Consider a spinal adjustment if you experience back or neck pain, headaches, limited range of motion, posture issues, a sedentary lifestyle, or are involved in an accident or trauma. Consult our doctors Dr. Christopher Oviatt and Dr. Michelle Martinook at Castledowns Chiropractic Clinic to determine if a spinal adjustment in Edmonton, AB, is appropriate for your specific condition and health goals.

How Often Should I Get a Chiropractic Adjustment? 

The frequency of spinal adjustments varies depending on the individual's unique needs, but regularity is ideal for maintaining optimal spinal health. For most patients, an initial series of adjustments may address specific issues, such as pain or misalignments. That could involve weekly visits for a month or two before a maintenance phase. During the maintenance phase, which typically ranges from every two weeks to once a month, our chiropractor helps prevent future problems and maintain your progress.

However, it's important to note that every person is different, and our chiropractor will tailor the treatment plan to your specific condition and goals. Our doctor considers factors such as your age, lifestyle, overall health, and response to treatment in determining the optimal frequency of adjustments. Our chiropractor will closely monitor your progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed, ensuring you receive the appropriate care.
