If I start treatment, do I have to go forever?
No. We do not want you to feel tied to chiropractic care forever. Your treatment plan may have you coming to the office for care more often at first to ensure you are pain-free and have the tools to remain that way. We are always here if you have a flare up or if a new pain emerges.
What is the audible “pop” that I hear during a spinal adjustment?
During an adjustment gases from the joint space are released. It creates a sound similar to the sound of gas being released when a soda can is opened. In general, hearing this sound during an adjustment is good. It means that the joint is moving freely.
Does chiropractic spinal adjustment hurt?
Chiropractic adjustments very rarely hurt and almost immediately have a positive effect on a patient’s symptoms.
The severity of inflammation as well as muscle spasm may play a role in the body’s resistance to an adjustment, but your chiropractic will talk you through the process to ensure that you feel comfortable.
Sometimes after an adjustment a patient may feel a warm sensation or tingling throughout their body. This is from increased endorphins being released and an increase in vascular activity.
