Dr. Seitzinger and his team are dedicated to providing you with the highest standard of care as quickly as possible. While treatment lengths vary somewhat from person to person and from condition to condition, there are a few rules of thumb you can follow.
First, newer injuries, if treated appropriately and immediately, tend to respond to fewer visits assuming that major tissue injury has not occurred. Many of these first time injuries can be effectively managed in as little as 3 to 4 visits. Conditions that have been present for greater than 3 months and recurring conditions are generally more stubborn and difficult to manage. Resolution may require 12 visits or more.
The only sure way to determine how long your treatment will take is to schedule a consultation and/or examination.
For those of you who believe in just waiting for the problem to “go away” on it’s own – understand that the longer your condition has been around, the more treatments it will require to resolve. Our goal is to get you better and keep you better. We focus on prevention and avoiding re-injury just as much as we do rehabilitation.
Think of it like going to the dentist. How many times do you see you dentist and why? Like most people, you’ve probably gone dozens of times. Quite simply, to prevent your teeth from literally rotting out of your head and keep your smile at its best.
Chiropractic care uses the same principle. Once we have eliminated your pain and rehabilitated the injured tissues we do recommend that you maintain a schedule of periodic checkups. Like your dentist and like many of the medical experts are now recognizing, prevention is the key to reducing recurrences of existing health conditions and minimizing new injuries in the future.
The research shows that periodic chiropractic care minimizes spinal and nerve stresses, reduces recurrences of old injuries, prevents new injuries from developing, minimizes degenerative processes, which enhances overall health and wellness. The care that Dr. Seitzinger at Pro Motion delivers is state of the art and will get you and keep you going!
A number of studies have shown that chiropractic care is extremely cost effective when compared to other “medical” forms of care for similar conditions. According to the 1993 Manga Report,
“There would be highly significant cost savings if more management of musculoskeletal pain was transferred from physicians to chiropractors. Users of chiropractic care have substantially lower health care costs, especially inpatient costs, than those who use medical care only.”
