I'm sorry. What about the people who go for maintenance? Is that ligit?

As I said, there are a lot of people who swear by their chiropractors. If it works for them, great! Hasn't done anything for me. The last straw was when the above mentioned DC took a bluish laser and ran it over my forehead which was supposedly for my back pain. He gave me some mumbo jumbo that made no sense. I guess as long as the DC sticks to spinal manipulation, all is well.

In my opinion, maintenance is a euphemism for keeping symptoms at bay. I've done the traditional chiro thing, and my body invariably falls back into its old ways with 1-2 days at most.

With upper cervical care such as NUCCA, my body can show signs of progress for several months between adjustments. I don't consider subsequent adjustments maintenance, but rather a ratcheting mechanism of incremental improvement in the alignment of the atlas.

With that said, my body's response to NUCCA can be fickle, sometimes requiring weekly adjustments if it's in a particularly unstable/dynamic state of reorganization. Some of the sensations experienced during this reorganization can be quite uncomfortable and even distressing if you aren't aware what you are getting into. I am banking the method will pay off in the long run, however I am still a work in progress with a long way to go.
