When someone has back pain and they visit a chiropractor it’s probably the question most people want answered. How many sessions = how much £££!
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on a number of factors.
Alison Eaves is a chiropractor in Leeds and has the following advice:
If it is the first time you have experienced back pain and it has only been present for one or two weeks then usually 4-6 treatments is enough to relieve the symptoms. This also allows me to offer advice and exercises to correct poor habits and improve the strength of your back in the long term. Sometimes chiropractic treatment can sort the problem out in less than 4 treatments in which case patients are very happy : but it is unusual to respond this quickly.
The longer the back pain has been present, or the more times back pain has flared up in the past then sometimes a few more chiropractic treatments are required. It may also take a couple of sessions before you start to notice an improvement in your symptoms. Gradually the back pain will start to feel a little easier and the improvement will last for longer periods and so the gap between treatments will increase. You should notice a significant improvement after 6 treatments and if further treatments are required then this will be discussed in detail and the rationale for further care explained.
So if you live in Leeds and have back pain then why not call me on 07828 686026 and discuss how Revive Chiropractic may be able to help.
