Chiropractic FAQ: How Long Do I Need To Go To The Chiropractor?

A common question I get is, “How long do I need to go to the chiropractor for adjustments? “.

Or maybe you have said, or you’ve heard from other people that once you start going to a chiropractor you have to go forever.

Today I will expose the truth and why it is in your best interest to have lifetime corrective care for your spine and your nervous system.

Chiropractic Care Is Not Just For Healing Pain, It’s For Prevention

When we talk about chiropractic here at New Life Chiropractic Rocklin, it’s not just about pain or symptoms. It’s not just about neck pain or back pain or headaches.

Once those system symptoms do go away it doesn’t mean that your body is fully healthy.

How Your Spine Is Like Your Teeth & Car

Let me ask you a question…

When you go to your dentist and he or she says you’ve got to brush and floss your teeth every day. Does that seem like a scam to you?

Do you question that? No. That makes a lot of sense. That’s generally accepted knowledge. If you want to keep your teeth, if you want to keep them healthy, you’ve got to brush and floss them.

When you go to your mechanic they tell you to change your oil, get a tune-up or rotate your tires. It’s not so you can go back into the shop more. It’s to extend the life of your vehicle to avoid major interruptions and major dysfunctions that cost thousands of dollars to be able to repair.

So think about your spine, brain, and nervous system… the most important system in your body. Wouldn’t it make sense that you want to take care of it every single day to extend it’s life and avoid pain and dysfunction? Don’t you think that you should be doing spinal hygiene including spinal corrective exercises at home?

The Value of Regular Chiropractic Care Adjustments

Regular chiropractic care adjustments in our office are no random, they are specifically customized to you to keep your spine healthy so your brain and your nervous system can communicate help to your body. So your body can adapt to the constant emotional, physical, and chemical stresses that you’re under that are affecting your health and causing your health care issues.

So when when people ask me, “Do I need to keep coming to the chiropractor for the rest of my life?” I tell them

absolutely, yes.

Chiropractic care is not a luxury it’s a necessity.

If you really want to be healthy naturally long-term, without medications and without surgery then you need to have corrective chiropractic care for your entire life for the whole family.

This is not just my opinion. The studies show this very same thing. There’s some really exciting studies coming out over the last couple of years showing the long term benefits of chiropractic care. Benefits like:

  • Spending up to 30 percent of the national average on health care costs. That’s 70 percent savings on your medical costs every single year!
  • Taking 80 percent less medications.
  • Going to doctors and hospitals and getting surgeries over 60 percent less.
  • And a recent study came out here in the journal Neuroscience showing that chiropractic care long term is actually changing genetic expression through what’s called telomeres. So we’re reversing aging and extending life as well as quality of life. That’s pretty awesome.

So when you’re asked why do you go to the chiropractor. This is why.

Why do you need to keep coming? To keep your body healthy to keep your spine healthy. The longer you do that the better your benefit.
