How Long Can I Expect It to Take Before I Feel Better After Visiting a Chiropractor?

When you’re in pain and are exploring various therapeutic treatments, you are probably wondering how long it will take before you start to feel better. This is especially true when you’re suffering from back pain—it can have an effect on your entire body and make it difficult to function on a daily basis. Whereas pain pills are usually very quick to take effect, we naturally expect exercise, physical therapy and chiropractic treatment to take a little (or a lot) longer. You might be surprised, however, to learn that some of the benefits of working with a chiropractor in Naples, FL can be felt in as little as one visit.

Amazingly, about two thirds of our patients report some improvement after the very first chiropractic adjustment. Most of the rest will be in the first one to three weeks, after several more treatments. In the beginning, this improvement may be temporary and will come and go until some long-term “correction” of the underlying pathology occurs. Additionally, most chiropractors will offer choices of whether you can sign up for relief care or correction care. Some will refuse to offer relief only, and some will be incapable of offering correction. At Hiler Chiropractic & Neurology, we offer both in the treatment of the following injuries:

It’s important that you sit down with your chiropractor and create a treatment plan. Be sure to ask questions about how long your chiropractor expects it will take you to heal.
