Should One Stop Treatments Once The Pain Is Gone?

A published study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics examined the effects of maintenance chiropractic care on patients with chronic low back pain: patients who received maintenance care experienced significantly lower pain levels compared to those receiving symptomatic treatment alone (Senna et al., 2011).

By addressing minor misalignments before they progress into significant problems, maintenance care allows your body to function optimally, reducing the chances of experiencing acute or chronic pain.
