Often times people ask me how long do they need to keep coming to the chiropractor for. And I have also heard people say that once you start going to the chiropractor, you will have to keep going for the rest of your life.
Let me add some clarity to these issues …
Let us say that you have decided to change your diet. You want to eat healthy foods. No more junk food or fast foods or dairy or anything that contains wheat or anything that contains pesticides, growth hormones or antibiotics.
Now how long would you want to do this for? You would do it for only as long as you want to stay healthy.
What if you have decided to stop smoking and drinking? How long would you want to do this for? Well, you would stop smoking and drinking for as long as you want to stay healthy.
What about exercise? You have realized you are overweight. Your heart and lungs are not fit. In fact they are sluggish. You commit to exercising 2 to 3 times per week.
How long would you want to keep exercising for? You would continue to exercise for as long as you would want to stay healthy.
Well, the same thing goes for chiropractic care! Once you have completed your corrective care, how long would you want to continue with your wellness care for? Only for as long as you want to stay healthy.
So you can see that this is my answer for everyone who asks me that question. Do the things that are good for you and healthy for you for as long as you want to stay healthy.
