If you are new to the world of chiropractic care, it can be intimidating to see, feel, and learn about the special treatments this field offers. We find many clients are worried the first time they get a chiropractic adjustment. Today, we’re going to take a look at the safety of chiropractic adjustments and what you can expect.
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?
When you work with a licensed and trained chiropractor, the treatment is completely safe. Chiropractic doctors must have four years of doctoral training. In addition, they must pass national board exams and comply with state licensing boards.
In addition to being safe, adjustments are beneficial for many people. They can help restore joint mobility, treat headaches, and alleviate pain.
What Can You Expect From Adjustments
During Your Adjustment
Some chiropractic adjustments are done by hand, while others can be performed using tools. Your chiropractor will place you in a specific position that treats affected areas. This will often happen at a chiropractic table. Using hands or a special tool, sudden force is applied to the joint to push it past its usual range of motion. You will likely hear a popping or cracking noise.
After Your Adjustment
Some people don’t feel relief from their pain right away. In fact, you might have minor side effects for a few days after your treatment. Headache, fatigue, and localized pain are common complaints. Your chiropractor will let you know what to expect after your adjustment and when to call with concerns.
