Visit frequency can vary according to the seriousness of a patient’s problem, from several visits to about 20 – 40 visits. It can take 1 day up to 6 months. Most of our auto patients reach stable or complete healing back to their original pre-accident condition within 3 – 4 months. Similar to pushing a ball up a hill, more effort is required early on. Thus a person needs to be seen more frequently in the beginning. However as time progresses, the frequency of treatments decreases. But the later you come in for chiropractic treatment after an accident, the longer time it takes for treatment and the possibility of a complete cure diminishes.
