NUMBER OF CHIROPRACTIC VISITS BY CONDITION 

The number of visits for low back pain episodes changes often with the underlying cause of the back pain episode. A study from 30 chiropractic clinics’ chiropractic care with flexion distraction (aka Cox Technic) resulted in data on 1000 back pain patients. It detailed the types of conditions treated, the days, visits and patient outcomes. Globally35, 12 visits in 29 days were the mean results for maximum improvement. For specific conditions like spondylolisthesis, disc herniation (even L4 vs L5 disc herniation), sprain/strain, etc., the days and visits varied. There is a difference in treating a disc herniation versus a sprain understandably. One presents a greater challenge to treat  than the other. 91% of patients discovered relief of their low back pain and leg pain on average in fewer than 90 days (when the condition becomes "chronic") and 12 visits.
