Diagnosis, prevention and treatment of different types of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders are treated by a chiropractor. Chiropractic treatment is a health care profession which is related to the various disorders connected with the nervous system, the musculoskeletal system and their effects on general health. It has been successfully used for the treatment of various health rated issues such as neck pain, joint pain, back pain, headaches and pain in arms and legs.

Depending on your needs, you can opt for:

  • Acute treatment
  • Wellness care

Which one is best for you, acute care or wellness care?

Acute care is required when you get injured and feel pain. It is meant to be administered for a short duration and is useful in the treatment of issues such as neck pain, back pain and other health issues. When someone chooses to visit a chiropractor in Lexington to get acute care treatment, they are simply going to be involved in the treatment until they are able to get rid of the pain. The severity and the chronicity of the disorder determine the time required for the acute care treatment.

On the other hand, wellness care is just like visiting the dentist regularly in order to keep your teeth in healthy condition. Similarly, visiting a chiropractor in Lexington on a regular basis is very important to keep the nervous system and spine healthy.

For how long do I need to visit my chiropractor?

As with any form of treatment, the duration for which you must see the healthcare professional depends on the specific ailment. The time duration for which you need to see the chiropractor in Lexington depends upon the problem you face, as well as its severity. If you are undergoing acute treatment, you must visit the chiropractor until your problem is fully resolved. However, if you have opted for wellness care, your visits are going to be a life long ritual.

Summary: The time duration required for the chiropractic treatment depends on the severity of the disorder. It can be acute or wellness care depending upon the need and/or choice of the patient.
