Is chiropractic maintenance treatment the key to a healthier Sheffield?

A question we regularly get asked by our patients is, once they have been cured of their complaint, can I keep coming to see you?

Over the years we have seen an increase in patients wanting to continue with treatment as a preventative approach to stay on top of their injuries. Our chiropractors have developed a maintenance style of treatment for those wanting to continue with chiropractic care. We have found this style of treatment benefits our patients tremendously. We believe that by helping to keep your joints and muscles supple, the chances of old injuries recurring is greatly decreased and ultimately allows your body to function at its optimum.

Some of the benefits you can expect from receiving maintenance chiropractic treatment include :-

  • Preventing injuries
  • helping muscles and joints stay supple
  • preventing headaches
  • keeping old injuries at bay
  • increased flexibility
  • improved sleep
  • performing day to day activities with more confidence

Why do I need maintenance treatment?

The stresses placed on the body in today’s society are huge. People live very busy lives with less time to relax. Physically demanding jobs such as heavy, manual work or office jobs where poor posture occurs daily can all lead to extra stresses and strains on the body. Muscles get tired and achy, joints become stiff, ailments such as headaches and trapped nerves become more common. Receiving regular chiropractic treatments can help your body to function at its optimum. This allows the body to cope with stresses placed on the body in day today life more effectively.

How often do you recommend maintenance treatment and what does it involve?

The time between chiropractic maintenance treatments varies between patients depending on their needs and past injuries. However, most people tend to visit us around every 4-8 weeks. Treatments are tailored to each individual and will involve a combination of chiropractic adjustments and work on any tight muscles needing attention. Our chiropractors in Sheffield can assess any areas of the body that might be under particular strain and correct problems before injuries have time to creep in.
