Re: treatment schedule

Let me continue further. This site will cut my posts off if I make them too long. This may help answer your question further. "Adjustments alone have never been proven to restore neck curves (or the normal "lordotic" curve). There is a chiropractic system that touts curve restoration, and it involves a head harness that tractions and extends the neck over a wedge or fulcrum. While the research on the outcomes appears impressive, it is highly criticized by the clinical science community. What we're not sure about is if restoring a neck curve is important, or essential to good health. We assume it is. Is it worth months and months of treatment and significant costs to improve a neck curve when it may not change your health, or your future neck pain history? On that note, exercises will also not change your lost neck curve, but exercises to the neck and upper back and shoulder girdle muscles are probably good to do if you have a neck problem. More important than neck curves on xray is a patient's functional outcome in their treatment program. Is your neck pain gone? Are your ranges of motion improved? Can you perform daily activities without problems?"
