This is a complicated question that will find different answers amongst chiropractors for a couple reasons.
Chiropractors often have a great variation of recommendations. Some chiropractors will adjust three to six times and some will often recommend year long treatment plans with over 100 adjustments. After all, your chiropractic is a doctor and should garner some trust. If you don’t trust him/her then you shouldn’t be getting treated by them or at least, you should ask this question and see if his/her answer seems reasonable.
Other good questions for your chiropractor includes:
I tend to favor that I would rather do more than necessary than not enough, primarily because of the safety of the chiropractic adjustment. However, in my opinion, the most important thing a chiropractor can do to avoid any issues with this particular dilemma of “over adjusting” is to regularly measure the improvement or lack thereof during care. This is essential while under regular care with a chiropractor.
If you only get check out once every 6-12 months there should be cause for concern UNLESS you are only receiving maintenance or wellness care where your chiropractor is routinely adjusting you at a decreased frequency (1/week to 1/month is typical) with no particular treatment goals in mind other than to protect and maintain any improvements already achieved.
