The frequency of visits to a chiropractor will depend on what your specific needs are. For some people weekly sessions will be the most beneficial. For others, monthly consultations will work just as well.
Perhaps we should clarify what a chiropractor does. A Chiropractor is a professional (doctor) that can align the muscular-skeletal structure using his hands with spinal manipulation. The manipulation can restore mobility and relieve pain in areas that might have some damage including joints, ligaments, bones, tendons among others.
Commonly people visit chiropractors to treat pain caused by stress, to improve their posture, or to be able to sleep better. For these, once per week or once per month could be indicative; of course, this could vary based on your condition.
For conditions such as Scoliosis, or injuries suffered during motor vehicle accidents, treatment frequency should be about 2-3 times per week, then once per week until the patients get better. We must understand that it is not possible to get maximum benefit of chiropractic manipulations in just one session. To get relief from pain, you will have to dedicate several visits to the practitioner. The sessions should be on a regular basis if you hope to get the most benefit.
In conclusion, your lifestyle or rutine will determine the amount of treatment sessions you will require. Those who sit for long, lift heavy loads, or do a lot of bending might require more treatment.
