HelloI am aboard certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine.I have worked with chiropractors for 30 years.If you are not needing treatments less and less, then barely at all, you are dependent.You should be getting better and self sustaining.That is the measure.If you are not permanently improving, then you need to see a different type of practitioner.If you think it is a personality problem with you, then see a clinical psychologist. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
