In health care, having a plan is the best way to ensure that you are able to achieve optimal results. Similar to how a personal trainer may put their clients on a nutrition or exercise regime to follow to help them achieve their fitness goals, your chiropractor should do the same. According to the experienced chiropractors at Corrective Chiropractic, these are the five reasons why your chiropractor should put you on a spinal treatment plan.
- Assess your spinal health. When your chiropractor creates your corrective plan, they will do a thorough assessment. This is designed to get an accurate understanding of where your trouble spots are, the level of misalignment you currently have, and the severity of your back issues. This is your baseline reading and gives your chiropractor a clear picture of what the future sessions will have to address to help you achieve the best results possible.
- Monitor your progress. Without a plan in place, it will be difficult for your chiropractor to track what they have addressed and what outstanding issues are still present. A corrective plan enables you to more completely track how you feel and what areas may continue causing you pain and discomfort. As the sessions progress, your chiropractor will be able to determine if you are achieving better health results or if a plan modification is needed.
- Pinpoint any recurring issues. If you visit your chiropractor sporadically, once every 6 months, it will be hard for them to have a thorough assessment of your back health. In these cases, you are continually updating them on how you feel and your initial pain areas. By having a spinal treatment plan, you are able to ensure that all of your pain areas are addressed and that your chiropractor has a near real-time glimpse into your back health, without the lengthy debriefing that occurs during infrequent visits.
- Help you make lifestyle adjusts. Most lower back and neck pain can be traced back to how we sit or the activities we engage in. Working with your chiropractor, you will be able to get insights into how you can improve your back health through easy-to-implement every day practices such as avoiding slouching when looking at a mobile device. The key to a sound corrective plan is to find your most troublesome areas and learn how to lessen the stressors that may be exacerbating your discomfort in these areas.
- Keep your back healthy in all conditions. In many cases, with regular visits, you and your chiropractor will be able to spot patterns of pain. For example, after a week of strenuous workouts, your chiropractor may notice that your lower back needs more attention. Whereas, after prolonged time sitting in front of your computer, your cervical spine may need adjusting. Either way, knowing these common stressors in your life can be factored into your corrective plan, allowing you to get the sustained relief you need.
