If I feel relief, why do I need to come back?

Short Answer: You don't. Ongoing assessments are advised if you want to allow for optimal healing to minimize recurrence and optimize function.

Long Answer: Many feel significant relief in discomfort following the first few visits. Our goal is not just to provide relief but to create a situation where the spinal stresses that caused the issue are minimized, stabilized and you no longer need to be adjusted regularly. This level of care can involve significant work on your part. Although we can't always achieve this status with a patient, it is this situation that provides optimal long-term benefit.

Symptoms are the last to show up and the first to leave (think of how cancer or heart attacks occur). A symptom-free state does not necessarily mean healing has completed or that you are in your optimal alignment. Once your body begins showing signs that it is stabilizing and holding alignment for an extended period of time, recommended time between visits will be lengthened.
