How Long Do I Have to See The Chiropractor?

"Why do I need on-going chiropractic treatments for my back pain? Why can't you, my Fort Wayne chiropractor, just treat it and end the pain forever?"

This is not a bizarre question, and it's also quite sensible. The answer is logically simple, too, though dual: we are born with spine-pain issues or we acquire them.


Some of us are born with problems or weaknesses in our spines that will be with us all life through. Such conditions as spondylolisthesistransitional vertebrae, fused vertebrae, and spinal curvatures are unique to one's own spine. There is no path to "get a new back bone" if one of these conditions is our own. So we must learn how to respect our spines so as to not cause pain. Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can deliver the spinal manipulation intended to alleviate your specific spinal condition. Then, you will want to consider its 

  • proper ergonomic use (how to lift, bend, twist, sit, stand, walk, climb, reach, pull, etc.). You don't want to compromise your now-pain-relieved spine further or again.
  • nutritional needs - Aaron Chiropractic Clinic will share some nutrition ideas to improve certain weaknesses of the spine.
  • strengthening requirements - Our simple exercises do not take long but will take you and your spine far in preserving its strength!

It is in these on-going spine problems that we - you and your Fort Wayne chiropractor - must partner for the greatest outcome, even coming in for periodic spinal manipulation. (1)


Some of us injure our backs. We do things that injure the best of spines: tumbling off a snowmobile or ladder or wakeboard or lifting excess weight. You get the picture - things we do in our normal activities of daily living may harm us, and we end up with back pain. So, when we damage the spine to the level that we trigger intervertebral disc degeneration, a herniated discarthritis, misaligned vertebrae, etc., we now have a spinal weakness which may become the weak link in our spinal health.

We all must keep up a strong, well-aligned spine and use the spine with the respect and knowledge of dodging those situations that could trigger pain.

How? You and your Fort Wayne chiropractor see each other on occasion. A recurring visit to Aaron Chiropractic Clinic for spinal alignment and assessment of healthy spine maintenance is helpful. Post-continued spinal manipulation after the initial pain-relieving care is even proposed as a way to chieve long-term benefit. (1) Truly, prevention is much better than having to go through repeated treatment of Fort Wayne back pain. It averts pain and suffering in this moment and reduces the risk of further spine pain in the future.


A new report described the reality of low back pain being a major cause of disability globally. It’s persistent or recurrent for many people. It is not common that it just goes away and never returns. Luckily, chiropractic maintenance care or management treatment plan has been found to be effective in reducing the number of days of pain for some sufferers. Patients for whom maintenance care was recorded to be of high value described such care as “patient-centered” while cost, (un)availability of care, and fear of treatment worried others. (2) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic strives to address all of these concerns which often go away as the back pain diminishes.

Whether you were born with it or developed it, back pain is disruptive. Relief is possible with Aaron Chiropractic Clinic. Just understand that there is a logical necessity and even benefit for periodic spinal manipulation and chiropractic care for certain spine conditions. (1)
