How Often Is a Spinal Adjustment Needed?

A common treatment in chiropractic therapy is known as spinal adjustment. This procedure aims to reduce neck and lower back pain and realign the structures of the spine. Your chiropractor will use a device or their hands to apply controlled pressure to specific areas of the spine. When you begin receiving spinal adjustments, you may be uncertain about the frequency required. Dr. Christopher Oviatt and Dr. Michelle Martinook, at Castledowns Chiropractic Clinic in Edmonton, can explain the recommended frequency of spinal adjustments to help alleviate your pain.

How Frequently Is a Spinal Adjustment Needed?

When you first visit one of our chiropractors to discuss spinal adjustments, they will examine your spine and ask questions about your pain. This helps them understand the location of the pain and its potential causes. After your initial adjustment, you will start to experience some relief, but for optimal results, multiple sessions are necessary.

The frequency of spinal adjustments depends on the severity of your issues and the intensity of your pain. Your chiropractor may recommend a range from several times per week to once per month, usually with more frequent visits initially, and then less frequently as your condition begins to stabilize. With regular spinal adjustments, you will begin to notice your symptoms diminishing after several weeks of treatment, leading to an overall improvement in your well-being.

Consistently receiving spinal adjustments can alleviate your pain and make your daily life more manageable. You will find that you can once again enjoy your favorite activities without constantly worrying about potential pain.
