Every two-three weeks, Dr. Ducat makes sure she gets adjusted by one of her colleagues to keep her body moving well and functioning better. In this week’s video, you get to watch her getting adjusted by Dr. Barry Williamson, a chiropractor who practices in Wheaton, from head to toe!
Researchers in Scandinavia studied patients with chronic or recurring back pain who saw the chiropractor. One group came in only when they had “flare ups” until things calmed back down. The other group were initially treated and then continued to see the chiropractor for wellness or maintenance visits to get adjusted every two weeks whether they had pain or not.

Interestingly, the patients who came in for wellness visits had 12 less painful days with only 1.7 more chiropractic visits over the course of a year. Not too bad of a trade-off, right?
Chiropractors have been advocating for regular spinal adjustments for years — even if you are not in pain — and it’s exciting to see research now demonstrating what we know works!
