Though this is a common belief, our goal is to help you to feel (and function) better and help you stay that way with the least number of visits as is reasonable. Everybody is different, and factors such as age, injury, work demands, and overall health play a role in how long you can hold your spinal correction. For our patients who wish to protect the gains they made with us, we recommend a monthly checkup. Why? Because your body is dynamic, and much like exercising or eating healthfully, as long as you’re consistent you will continue to enjoy the benefits. However, we never require that and the choice is always yours to make.
