If your symptoms dissipate it does not mean your subluxations are corrected. Many patients exhibit spinal degeneration (decay) which takes years to develop. There are countless stresses over the course of your lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine, such as the trauma of the birth process, slips, falls, accidents, lifting and many sessions just siting over a desk.
Long periods between spine exams by a chiropractor will result in more time it will take to correct your subluxations. But, how you choose to use chiropractic care is ultimately up to you.
Our experience is people who cease care when they are “feeling fine” often return with the same health concerns that brought them to our office in the first place. Patients who adopt long-term chiropractic care as a lifestyle wellness decision usually their health challenges seldom return resulting in a higher quality of life & health.
