Ongoing care can be part of your regular health routine. Much like going to the dentist for regular cleanings, or continuing to go to the gym for health, regular visits to the chiropractor may lead to more pain-free days in a year. A 2020 study (Nordic Maintenance Care Program) found that for patients with low back pain, maintenance care through the year lead to fewer pain days and longer times between painful days than those who went without regular treatment.
Finding the right maintenance care program is individual to each patient, and can depend on individual goals, availability, exercise levels, overall health, and physical demands. Many patients benefit from regular monthly visits, but this will be discussed with the chiropractor when determining your treatment plan.
