KIRO’s Approach to Chiropractic Visit Frequency

At KIRO, we recognize that everyone's wellness journey is unique, shaped by personal experiences, injuries, and inherited postural habits. This understanding informs our personalized approach to chiropractic visits. We adjust the frequency of sessions to align with each person's health goals, lifestyle needs, and the unique alignment patterns developed over a lifetime.

  1. Tailored to Individual Needs

  • Acute Care Phase: For those in the acute phase of care, we may recommend treatments up to 3 times a week. This intensive approach is based on the understanding that misalignments, whether developed over years or suddenly, do not disappear overnight. Each adjustment is a step towards breaking these patterns and resetting the body's alignment.

  • Maintenance Phase: As clients move to maintenance care, the frequency of visits decreases. This phase is vital for maintaining progress and preventing a return to old habits. We aim to maintain health improvements and avoid future complications by reinforcing new alignment patterns, ensuring they become the body's new standard.

  1. Enhancing Chiropractic Care with Exercise and Education

We supplement chiropractic adjustments with physical exercise and education about alignment and patterns. This holistic approach not only enhances our chiropractic care but also empowers our clients with knowledge about their bodies.

We dispel common myths about chiropractic adjustments, such as the belief that the "cracking" sound indicates immediate and permanent realignment. Instead, we emphasize that realignment is a gradual process, with each adjustment contributing to the long-term goal of resetting alignment patterns.

  1. Advocating for Clustered Consistent Adjustments

For sustainable progress, we recommend clustered adjustments, particularly in the initial treatment phases. This strategy effectively breaks long-standing patterns by preventing the body from reverting to old habits between visits. Sporadic adjustments are not ideal for long-term results as too much time between treatments can undo progress.
