If you are one of these people, but have been told that the awful back pain you have can be treated by a chiropractor, you must be curious and may have a lot of questions too.

Once you have decided that chiropractic care is for you, it’s important that you get all of your doubts cleared up before you embark on your treatment plan. We at Family Chiropractic & Wellness have put together 3 questions you should ask your chiropractor:

What are the different types of treatment that I will receive?

The most common treatments you will receive are different chiropractic adjustments & precise movements; this is referred to as spinal manipulative therapy and helps in re-aligning your joints. Some other treatments you can expect are soft tissue massage techniques, acupuncture, exercise prescriptions and electro-modalities.

What are the total number of treatments I will need?

It is important to know what the frequency of the treatment plan is. Based on your specific condition, your treatment may take a few days, weeks/months. The visits may be more frequent at the outset of the treatment; however as your condition improves, you may need to visit less frequently. Once the problem has been completely resolved, your chiropractor will design a maintenance plan that may require you to go in for a session every 3-4 weeks.

Am I required to do anything special to maintain the effects of the chiropractic treatment?

Regular exercise and good posture are very important. In addition to that, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following proper lifting techniques go a long way in preventing recurrence of the injury. The only way to achieve complete, long-term recovery is to follow the instructions your chiropractor gives you.
