Each person's care is designed especially for his or her needs and goals. It is not one size fits all. There are many factors that influence how a person responds to care including type of work, level of stress, weight and other health issues.
Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. If this is the reason for the person's first visit, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will
require daily visits, or two to three
visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there isnothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poorindicator of health. In
fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a
disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about
disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear,
even though much of the underlying condition remains.
