We treat patients for as little as a few weeks to as long as two years, depending on their health conditions. The extent to which you choose to benefit from your rehabilitation is ultimately up to you. Each of us is responsible for the quality of our health and well-being. Once a patient’s treatment plan is complete and our goals are achieved, we strongly urge all patients to continue maintenance care to gain long-term, lasting benefits. Regular exercise and healthy eating habits are lifestyle decisions and so is lifetime wellness care.
Many of the patients treated in our office have spinal degeneration (decay), which has taken years and in some cases a lifetime to develop. The trauma of the birth process, slips, falls, accidents and countless other stresses over the course of a lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine. The longer you wait to have your spine checked, the longer it will take to correct postural and structural abnormalities. However, how you choose to use rehabilitation is ultimately up to you. It has been our experience that those who stop care prior to the conclusion of their treatment plan because they are “feeling fine” return with the same challenges, which initially brought them to our office. However, patients who commit to rehabilitation to correct their conditions find their health challenges rarely return, and they enjoy a higher quality of life and health.
