Research into the effectiveness of chiropractic care is ongoing and has shown benefits to many patients. Approximately 1 million British Columbians visit a chiropractor each year to recover from injuries and pains associated with everyday living.
It is common for patients to report pain relief and improvements in their quality of life as a result of chiropractic treatment. Sometimes, changes are immediate, and in some cases (depending on the condition) changes are slow to occur. Patients notice a difference in 3 to 5 visits and full recovery in 6 to 8 visits* on average, depending on the nature of their condition or injury.
*Although the provincial average is 6 to 8 visits the range is broad with some patients responding faster than others.
