We have been practicing chiropractic in San Francisco for over 20 years now. And, even though the Financial District workforce has a high turnover, we still have quite a few patients that come in on a regular basis from when we first opened. Why would they do that..aren't they better yet?
Well, they come in because they want to have the benefits of chiropractic on an ongoing basis. Just like people exercise because they want the benefits of exercise every day. This is also the reason people eat right...they like what it does for them...it's a Lifestyle Choice...and so is chiropractic.
Sure, most of the time when we first meet someone it is for a specific "pain" related problem, like back pain, or neck pain, headaches, whiplash, or shoulder pain. But what ends up happening is a certain percentage of these people end up realizing that they function and feel much better because of the chiropractic adjustments and they want this to continue.
How often a patient comes in for what we call "maintenance care" varies patient to patient. We need to consider age, over-all health, daily stress levels, occupation, active sports, and any complications such as scoliosis or forward head posture (very common).
In general, it's probably best to see your chiropractor say once per month. Some come in more and some come in less. Our patients choose their visit frequency based on trial and error.
Most elite athletes, high profile business executives, and many in the entertainment industry such as rock musicians, actors, and television personalities, make chiropractic a key component of their healthy lifestyle...and you can too. Chiropractic is safe, gentle, inexpensive, time efficient, and highly effective.
One of the things that is so great about chiropractic adjustments is that a skilled chiropractor can work on many things in a matter of minutes. It's not unusual for me to work on a patients neck, mid back, low back, shoulders, and feet, all in the same visit. This is a lot of "bang for the buck".
Many clinics these days such as ours have walk-in and even no-wait policies so you can come whenever you feel like it and be seen right away. Consumers want convenience...even with their health-care,
Chiropractic is the worlds largest, drug-less healing profession. WHY?...because it works...not just for pain, but for over-all health and well-being...as a lifestyle choice.
