The Chiropractor Check-Up: How Often Should You Visit?

We all know we should see the chiropractor regularly. But how often is “regularly”? Does it vary from person to person?

The answer is…yes. It really depends on your unique situation. Let’s explore a few factors that can affect how often you should see your chiropractor.

Age 

As we age, our bodies change and we don’t heal as quickly as we used to. If you are 65 plus, you may need to see the chiropractor more frequently than someone who is middle-aged.

This is because misalignments can happen more frequently as our bodies start to wear down 

Activity Level 

Physical movement is key to a long & healthy life. Too much or too little activity will put different strains on the body. If you live an active lifestyle and are constantly on the go, there is a greater chance for misalignment.

Additionally, if you have a physically demanding job, such as one that requires heavy lifting or repetitive motions, you may also need to see the chiropractor more frequently in order to prevent any further damage. 

On the other hand, if you lead a sedentary life or your job involves a lot of sitting, poor posture and inactivity can lead to muscular and skeletal problems.  

Overall Health 

If you are generally healthy, you will likely not need to see the chiropractor as often as someone who has chronic health conditions or pain. However, even if you are healthy, it is still a good idea to get regular check-ups in order to prevent any potential problems from occurring.

So how often should you be seeing a chiropractor?

For general maintenance and to prevent injuries, it is recommended that adults see a chiropractor every 4-8 weeks. Chiropractic care is preventative care, and by seeing a chiropractor regularly, you are proactively taking steps to avoid injuries and keep your body healthy.

The bottom line is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to how often you should see a chiropractor. It really depends on your unique situation and lifestyle. However, even if you are healthy and don’t have any pain, it is a good idea to get regular check-ups in order to prevent any potential problems from occurring.
