A chiropractic adjustment refers to a procedure where a specialist known as a Chiropractor makes use of their hands or an instrument to perform a procedure known as spinal manipulation. The chiropractor applies a sudden and controlled force on the spinal joint, using a Pro adjuster. This is done to improve the motion of the spine and optimize the physical function of your body. Dr.Moe Pisciottano introduced the Prosoft 360 which has contributed immensely to chiropractic growth.
What is the standard period for relief?
This is an important question that many patients have for their chiropractors. The answer though varies from patient to patient. We heal at different rates due to many medical factors. In addition, the extend of damage to the body impacts how fast it will heal. A good number of patients begin noticing improved conditions after they are done with the first session.
If you do not notice any difference after your first visit, do not despair. Chiropractic adjustments are not intended to be a quick fix. It takes time depending on factors such as those mentioned above. What is usually common among patients is progressive results over time.
How Long Does Chiropractic Adjustment Treatment Period Last?
Dr. Moe Pisciottano will come up with a treatment plan that is effective depending on your injury. There are general rules the are used to provide a good outcome. A plan intended to address a specific injury will take about two to four weeks. During this period, a patient will visit their chiropractor about three times a week in addition to these visits a patient is required to supplement their visits using ergonomic tools or home-based techniques. Some of the techniques involve the use of elastic bands to stretch at home. Dietary advisories are also included in the plan which goes a long way in addressing inflammation.
What Factors Determine Treatment Period:
Several factors go into play when determining your treatment period. Factors such as your activity and mobility levels, the severity of the pain, and how your body responds to the treatment. Age too plays a key role in how fast you get results after a chiropractic adjustment.
On average, you should expect a plan that extends for about nine to ten weeks. However, this is something that is personalized by your chiropractor.
Does Quick Relief Come Instantly?
This is an area that most patients have concerns about. One way of determining how long your treatment plan will be is to consider the period in which you have been in pain. A patient who has been in pain for several years may need a longer treatment plan than say a person who has been in pain for two months. It has been shown that things like hydration, rest, and good levels of exercise improve outcomes significantly.
Does Consistency In Treatment Matter?
How consistent you are in following up your treatment plan determines to a larger extend whether the relief felt will be temporary or permanent. Consistency also helps establish a good relationship with your caregiver enabling you to get better care and suggestions should a new ailment arise. Dr.Maurice Pisciottano has a Patient care system that offers a follow-up program for his patients to ensure the treatment procedures are successful.
