No. Patients who have healthy diets, exercise regularly, and perform recommended stretches are often able to go for long periods of time without any chiropractic care. When the same symptoms start lingering, it is recommended that you return to your chiropractor before the problem returns again. Catching early signs of discomfort often means that very few treatments are required to restore your body.
Some people who perform repetitive actions during their work or leisure activities may find that maintenance care can help with stiffness, aches and pains from their daily activities. I leave the frequency of maintenance care at the discretion of the patient, who is generally able to recognize the signs that they should be adjusted.
