Q:OK, i went to the chiropractor on Monday for the first time in 10 years. I have AWESOME insurance that will pay for the care and they always pay fast. I have been having lower back problems since i got into a car accident when i was 14 so I felt like the chiropractor would help because conventional Drs haven’t. I saw the Xrays and they show that my back it pretty messed up. The spine is a little twisted and my neck is out of line. Ok, the question is…. Do I need to go every week to get treatments like they want me to? And They scheduled me to come in for Thurs (today) and Friday (tomorrow) when I had my first visit on Monday. Isn’t this too much? How will getting adjusted 3 times in a week do anyhting? And last, Do you think they just are scheduling me so much cause they know my insurance will pay all the expenses?PLEASE DON’T TELL ME IT IS A CROCK, JUST IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCES OR KNOW ABOUT THIS PLEASE REPLY. I DON’T NEED ANYONE TELLING ME I AM STUPID FOR GOING
More Answers to “Chiropractic Care?“Sincerely,out of personal experience, it is helpful. Chiropractic adjustments can take some of the pain out, and the regular procedure is to be going at least 3 times a week and maybe more. Yes it is time consuming , needs patience , and only you will know if it is worth your while . I had sciatica and arthritis in the hip, and Chiropractic adjustments kept me going for a long time without any pain. . however in time I needed to do the total hip replacement, and after that surgery the leg that was shorter was adjusted and all the pain was gone. Give it a chance and see what it will do for you, and then decide .
In the beginning, you have to go alot. After a while, your visits will probably taper off. Then, you’ll only go once or twice a week for maintenance..Look at this way, they have to fix 10 years worth of damage. It’ll take a while, but it’s worth it..Good luck.
