Patients suffering from new, acute pain-related conditions see a vast improvement in their symptoms within three to six sessions, as this is sufficient to bring the condition under control. Chronic conditions are treated in a similar manner to alleviate the condition but may require more treatment to control. Maintenance therapy (about once a month) is then required to prevent the recurrence of pain. This is especially the case in older, arthritic patients. With more complex cases such as spinal disc problems, a few months of treatment may be necessary, but this may negate the need for surgery.

In general, many patients present with pain and decreased mobility and are able to regain full painfree functionality after a few sessions. A condition called torticollis refers to when a patient wakes up in the morning with a twisted neck tipping to one side due to intense spasm of the neck muscles. Two to three chiropractic sessions are able to rectify the situation.

There is nothing more debilitating than chronic pain and many GP's who see patients with chronic headaches and back pain are limited to prescribing analgesic medication for the temporary relief of pain. The medication merely masks the symptoms and discontinuation of the medication may results in recurrence of pain. On the other end of the spectrum, an orthopaedic surgeon may only intervene if there is a condition requiring surgery. However, if none can be identified, the patient may be subjected to insufferable pain and chronic pharmacological therapy. A chiropractor serves an extremely important role in eradicating or managing pain in these circumstances, without being invasive.
