What to Expect After an Adjustment
-Relief. Many patients experience immediate relief from pain or discomfort, and others take a few treatments to experience this relief. Many Chiropractic patients describe their feeling after being adjusted as “warm,” “loose,” or “relaxed.”
-Patients may experience soreness after the initial week of treatment due to the body adjusting to the correct spinal alignment. It is similar to exercise. If you start up a new regimen, you are typically sore after the first week of training.
Returning to Activity
During the healing phase of treatment, your body is more vulnerable to injury, so its best to take it easy until your doctor has given the go ahead to get back to you activities of daily living. Often when patients leave the office after an adjustment, they feel wonderful and forget about the injury which has been bothering them for months to years. This wonderful feeling may give you the false feeling you are healed and you may go back to risky activities. This may only to lead to worsening of symptoms or further injury. After your chiropractic treatment, it is very important you follow your doctors advice because his number one goal is to get you healthy without the constraints of pain.
Soreness After Your Treatment
Soreness is completely normal after a chiropractic adjustment. The soreness is due to the light stretch placed on the joint and the new corrected juxtaposition of the joint. The soreness felt is analogous to the feeling you get after you haven’t exercised for an extended period of time. If your joint is malpositioned (a subluxation), the body has to readapt to the corrected position. The feeling of soreness is typically not due to damage but rather the nervous system learning the joint’s new position in relation to your body. Typically, after a few adjustments by your chiropractor, most patients do not feel any soreness or discomfort, similar to when you are in a consistent exercise regimen and no longer feel the soreness because of adaptation. If you are concerned about your condition contact Chirobody as soon as possible.

When it comes to the adjustment of an infant, it is very different than an adjustment of an adult that usually results in a “popping” sound. Instead, infants receive a light and gentle pressure to restore alignment and remove stress from the body. The pressure used on an infant can be compared to causing a tomato to dimple with a fingertip.
Pediatric care begins when the child is still in the womb with the mom getting checked for pelvic imbalances throughout her pregnancy by a chiropractor. This is a simple beginning to a child’s road to a healthy life. Throughout the developmental changes of childhood, children often experience many different stressors, whether it’s chemical, physical or emotional. Before the age of two, infants will experience hundreds of falls as they learn to sit, crawl and eventually walk. Having a child’s spine checked for alignment throughout every milestone is important to promote growth and development.
