Chiropractic Focus – Why Chiropractic maintenenace care makes sense

She explained that she had been doing this for years following her initial course of spinal correction, going about 4 to 5 times a year some years and then 10 to 12 times other years, depending on how life goes. So her friend asked her: “Why do you undergo Chiropractic maintenance? Didn’t the doctor fix you the first time?” A simple…
