With Chiropractic, care is usually prolonged and intensive, because the idea is that the body heals itself; and at a cellular level, cell regeneration requires time.  For example: the skin regenerates every 30 days, the stomach membrane every five days, the liver every six weeks and the skeleton every three months (Reference: Deepak Chopra, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind: The Quantum Alternative to Growing Old.)  In order for the body to achieve these changes, it needs a good nere supply, a connection between the brain and the rest of the body, and by maintaining the nervous system free of interference, we can achieve a longer lasting health.

The Chiropractic adjustment is like turning on the light:  the electricity current is always there, only the light switch doesn´t let the current through to the light.  It´s the same with a subluxation:  the vertebra out of its correct position puts pressure on the nerve and doesn´t let 100% of nerve impulses (light) pass through the foramen (hole) to the cells in the body.  On reconnecting the pathway, the nerve impulses arrive at their destination in the same way as the light switch reconnects the electrical impulses to the light bulb and the light is turned on.  What takes time is the cellular regeneration.


In order to achieve a lasting change in our body, it is necessary to repeat the adjustments at a frequency which is usually around three times a week to begin, although this can vary from person to person, depending on age and health factors. 

When the body begins to hold the vertebrae in their place for longer periods of time, the frequency of visits is reduced accordingly, with the idea that when you come to get checked there is no need to adjust any vertebrae because the body is doing its job and has reached a state of wellness and homeostasis (balance).
