Posting Date:  Feb 19, 2020

Making time for your chiropractic care can be tough. For patients, it can be hard to balance another appointment with their busy life. To help patients make the most of their chiropractic care, it can’t hurt to let them know how to be a little strategic about when they book an appointment. Here are five opportune times to let your patients know to get adjusted.

Before they go to the gym. A chiropractic adjustment loosens up muscles and aligns the neuro-musculoskeletal system. If everything is properly in place, patients can avoid injury. An adjustment will also help relieve pain, which will make their workout a little easier.

When they feel a headache starting. We all know the familiar pangs at the start of a headache or migraine. If they can manage to get in for a quick adjustment, they may be able to relieve some of the neck and back tension causing their headache.

After sitting all day. Patients can book an appointment on their commute home and all the stress of sitting at their desk will melt away. An adjustment can address back and neck tension caused by poor posture and inactivity.

When they are in pain. If they wake up sore, have constant pain, or an injury that won’t heal, it’s time to make an appointment. Chiropractic care is a drug-free pain management option that can help find long-term relief.

When they feel stressed. Stress causes your body to tense up, which can cause muscle fatigue and throw your spine out of alignment. A chiropractic adjustment can loosen up the neuro-musculoskeletal system and release that tension.

There is no wrong time for a chiropractic adjustment. But if a patient wants to get the most out of their care, it can’t hurt to book an appointment at the right time. Let your patients know that as a doctor of chiropractic, you can help them figure out a care plan designed for their body and its specific needs to maximize the benefits.
