“Chiropractic users were less likely to have been hospitalized, more likely to report better health status, more likely to exercise vigorously, and more likely to be mobile in the community. In addition, they were less likely to use prescription drugs”*. Chiropractic is the world’s third largest health profession after Medicine and Dentistry.
Australians make over 16 million visits to Chiropractors each year for nerve, joint and muscular problems; most commonly back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headache, migraine, joint pain, spinal disc conditions, arm and leg pain.
Each individual, depending on their condition and response to care will have a different outcome and prognosis. Progress checks will be given along the course of treatment to see how well you’re coming along. If you’re progressing well, the frequency of adjustments can be reduced. Most wellness care patients get adjusted every 3-4 weeks to maintain function and alignment.
About 1/3 of patients experience some soreness after an adjustment, which can last for 1-2 days. The adjustment itself is unlikely to be painful and different techniques can be used in order to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Chiropractic is the preferred drug-free non-invasive choice for many for the relief of a variety of aches and pains.
