Does Chiropractic Care Never End?

This is a million dollar question. Does Chiropractic care ever end?

Many people are suspicious about Chiropractic care because in their experiences are that the care never ends. People pay thousands or dollars over the period of time. Their frequency of care doesn’t decrease and the cost keeps mounting up. At one point their most observable results starts to peak and you feel that your health condition is not changing. These are concerns of the public and this concern is very legitimate because they are paying clients that want to get observable results. People should reach their goals when they reach the result they wanted and eventually their chiropractic adjustments should end at a certain point. What is the starting point and how frequent is chiropractic adjustments?

Frequency of Chiropractic adjustments:

Only way to really know how frequent the person has to come in for chiropractic adjustment is determined by how the first chiropractic adjustment has helped the subluxation. Once the initial examination is done, we know what the condition of the person and the first chiropractic adjustment is done. Then the next visit is very important. If the person that was given chiropractic adjustments healed fast then the frequency will be less frequent. If the person healed very slow then the frequency will be more frequent. After several chiropractic adjustments, re-examinations is done to assess the healing progression.

Progession of Chiropractic adjustments:

The progression of chiropractic adjustments phases1depends on the starting point of their health condition. Many people are in pain and they have a lot or problems, but once the pain is gone many people don’t see the reason for continuing chiropractic adjustments. The problem is that many people are not told the damaged areas of the spine will not be stable even after the pain is gone. If people stop the chiropractic adjustments after the pain is gone then the unstable condition will revert back to the original condition and pain eventually.  The healing process of damaged areas to be stable takes long period time for the muscles and ligaments.

Once the damaged areas are completely healed the body has more adaptability and healing capability to maintain the spine by themselves. Eventually the nerves are in 100% function, so the frequency of chiropractic adjustments decreases.

End of Chiropractic Adjustment:

There are times when a client comes in to the office and there is no physical evidence of the need to adjust the person’s spine. As long as the chiropractor is always assessing the condition and progress of subluxation, then eventually there will be objective and scientific conclusion that there are no more subluxations. Then there is an end for chiropractic adjustments as long as the person can maintain their good condition. Find a chiropractor that will communicate and educate everyone about their progression and condition of subluxation will give the answer you seek.

How long this will take, how frequent the chiropractic adjustments are, and how much it will cost.

Strengthen Your Immune System

Chiropractic… Bringing out the best in you.

Your Immune System Works Around The Clock To Keep You 100%, Unadulterated You!

It patrols your every nook and cranny—attacking and destroying useless and dangerous things inside you: bacteria, viruses, splinters, dirt dead cells, even cancer cells.

It seems reasonable to suppose that the body is fighting cancer all the time and winning early cancers are probably being detected and combated in the body on a regular basis. If you take this process and step it up in intensity, you have the ‘miracle’ of spontaneous remission.1

Do You Have Defenses?

You have many weapons to protect you: your skin and mucous membranes create a physical barrier to invasion; your digestive juices dissolve germs; urine cleans your urinary tract, and skin secretions kill many germs when you’re alive—that’s why cadavers turn ugly colors. Fever ‘burn off’ microorganisms; swelling helps wash the system; special cells attack and devour intruders; macrophages, T-cells, killer cells, lymphocytes, antibodies and others, each with its own specialized manner of taking care of bad guys. You also have an internal defense industry that produces your armaments; your bone marrow, spleen, thymus tonsils, adenoids, appendix and lymph nodes give you lots of high-quality weapon systems.

What Are Immune Diseases?

But what’s powerful for good can be potent for bad. An unhealthy immune system can overreact as in allergic or hypersensitivity reactions; can underreact as in immune deficiency disorders; or can attack the very body it was meant to serve as in autoimmune disorders.

Do Emotions Affect Your Health?

A depressed person has a depressed immune system, a happy person a healthier one. Bernie S. Siegel, M.D. has noted that unexpressed feelings depress immune response. In fact, in 1982, two Harvard psychologists, David McClelland and Carol Kirshnit, found that simply watching movies about love increases the level of immunoglobulin-A, a defense against colds and other viral diseases. Another approach is—get a pet!

 To boost your immune system, get a pet. Whatever the animal—dog, cat, fish or bird—turning your attention outward will help.  Just watching a tank of tropical fish or stroking a cat is therapeutic.4

Can Chiropractic Help Your Immune System?

Doctors of chiropractic analyze your spine to locate vertebral subluxations, a serious condition that causes spinal distortions and interferes with your nervous system function. Over a hundred years of chiropractic and osteopathic observations have demonstrated to many patients that spinal care improves immune function. The exact mechanism of how the spine and the nervous system affect the immune system is one of the hottest areas of scientific inquiry. This new field is called psychoneuroimmunology (PNI). Keeping your spine healthy under chiropractic care is one of the best ways of keeping your immune system functioning at its optimum level so you may remain healthy and whole.

Spinal health is important for proper internal organ function.


No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family carrying the vertebral subluxation complex in your spines? Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.

Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality of the air, food, and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation—a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people, it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength, and vitality or a life of disease, weakness, and disability.
