Chiropractic Therapy’s main goal is to adjust the spine so that the disc releases just enough pressure off the nerve so that pain and numbness will alleviate. You will typically go to a chiropractor for one month at a rate of three visits per week. If you don’t feel any relief at this point, then this may not be the treatment to pursue alone. Combined with Spinal Decompression it may be more effective. Chiropractic however is a good choice for most other causes of back and neck pain.
