Can I reduce the amount of Chiropractic sessions I need?
People visit Chiropractors for acute and chronic pain relief, prevention of injuries or wellness care.
The amount of sessions for our pain relief patients will depend on many factors, some include: the type of injury, how long it’s been there for, prior experience of pain and much more. This is why the amount of sessions vary and can range from 1-20 sessions.
When people attend our clinic for prevention of injuries we do extra tests such as squats, lunges, and box jumps, these give us information about symmetry, power, endurance and strength and will give us a better picture when assessing the likelihood of reoccurence.* The amount of sessions greatly depend of frequency of exercise and level of sport.
Our wellness care patients are the ones who don’t exercise and spend most of their available time at work, these people generally come to the clinic every few weeks to every month to help reduce severity and frequency of their symptoms.
You can reduce the amount of Chiropraction sessions needed, however, it largely depends on your ability to learn, listen and perform exercises that your Chiropractor has prescribed for you.
* Baring in mind that currently there is no good evidence to show any test will prevent injuries.
