Sometimes it may take a number of adjustments over several weeks before the muscles and ligaments are stable enough to prevent the spinal misalignment from recurring. It is important to keep in mind that pain is usually the last symptom to appear and the first to go away. Your symptoms may decrease significantly in a few visits, but the underlying cause of the pain is not usually completely resolved.
Once we have eliminated your pain and rehabilitated the involved tissues we recommend you maintain a schedule of periodic spinal checkups. Prevention is the key to reducing recurrences of conditions and minimizing future injuries.
