How many treatments will it take to help me?
Good question. It usually depends on two things, firstly, the severity of your spinal problems, and secondly how physically stressful your daily activities are on your spine.
For some people, with recent, mild/moderate problems, they can get better fast, like in 1 or 2 visits fast. For people with more severe and long standing problems it can, understandably, take longer.
We do our best to give you an accurate estimate of the number of visits we expect it may take to help you, additionally, we do everything we can to help you get better as fast as possible, as well as show you all the things you can do yourself to not only get better faster, but also to stay better for longer.
One thing that you can be sure of with us, is that you’re never locked into anything, how long you come in for is always up to you.
