How Chiropractic Adjustments Work
Treatment will vary based on the type of adjustment you need. Typically, patients lie on a table. Our chiropractor will find the areas that need to be adjusted. Adjustments can be manual or instrument-assisted. Our chiropractor will realign the spine and other areas. You may hear cracking or popping noises, but this is just gas escaping from the joints.
Adjustments do not hurt, but may cause soreness. This should go away after several days. You will likely need numerous chiropractic adjustments to get the full benefits of treatment and to avoid recurring pain.
Our chiropractor will also work with you to improve your posture. We will ask you about how you stand, walk, and sit, as well as how you sleep at night. It is imperative that you know how to position your body while you are sitting at your desk, moving, and standing. It is also important to know this information for when you are asleep in bed. We may suggest that you include stretches into your daily routine to help in preventing future issues.
