Do I have to keep going to the chiropractor after I start getting adjusted?
Chiropractor Vero Beach- One of the biggest reasons people don’t go to a chiropractor is people think you have to return for the rest of your lives. Not true! Let’s say you hurt your back. It doesn’t matter how you do it, but you threw it out. It’s a chiropractor’s job to conservatively help you get rid of the pain. Once the pain is gone, you don’t have to return. It’s that simple. One of my favorite sayings is, “You know where my office is. Come back if it bothers you again.” I can’t keep you from hurting your back. That’s your job. It’s just my job to help you get out of pain if your hurt it. Now, let’s say you hurt your back in the gym doing a particular exercise. If I help you get rid of the pain and you go back to doing the same exercise and hurt it again. A lot of times I’ll say, “do you need to keep doing that same exercise?” As we age, things change in our bodies. Exercises we used to do maybe hurt us now. It’s a chiropractor’s job to help you get out of pain and try to teach you how to not hurt it again. Listen to your body. It’s smarter than we will ever be.
