As with Medical Doctors, there are a variety of chiropractic specialties. Some, like those at Health Quest, are primarily problem-oriented and see patients with typically more acute symptoms. Prescribed treatment plans are designed to specifically address the source of those symptoms. Once symptoms resolve, patients are discharged from care with no future scheduled appointments. Should new problems develop, or old ones flare up due to life stress or injuries, patients may return for another short-term treatment plan.
Other chiropractic practices are more “wellness” oriented and outline long-term treatment plans. Patients who opt for this care typically have chronic conditions that need regular maintenance care, or they simply appreciate the quality-of-life benefits from consistent chiropractic care.
Regardless of the situation or the specific chiropractic practice, the health care options you elect to follow are always your choice.
