How often should you get adjusted by a chiropractor?
When you are just starting a new treatment plan, it’s common to have adjustments multiple times a week. As your body begins to heal, that number could drop to just once a week. And if you are pain-free and simply wanting to maintain your lifestyle, you might only need to get an adjustment once or twice a month.
Can you go to the chiropractor too much?
