Will getting a chiropractic adjustment hurt?
Quite the contrary – chiropractic treatments typically make you feel much better! That being said, on occasion patients experience discomfort as a direct result of the manipulation. As with any therapy, certain factors can alter the sensations experienced after the adjustment.
Occasional minor post-treatment complaints include local discomfort, fatigue, and headaches. As rare as this is, if experienced, the patient should expect the discomfort to subside within 24-48 hours. Using ice on sore areas will help to decrease these minor side effects.
Is chiropractic treatment safe?
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest and effective forms of health care available. Of course, no form of health care is completely without risk. But in comparison, a typical alternative for pain management is pills, and a study printed in the Journal of Gastroenterology stated that approximately 1/3 of all hospitalizations and deaths related to gastrointestinal (gut) bleeding can be attributed to aspirin and NSAID use. Now that doesn’t seem so safe!
Do I need to go to the chiropractor if I can crack my own body?
The chiropractic adjustment is delivered by a highly trained doctor to the joints that are in need of manipulation, generally due to a restriction. Contact points and line of thrust are extremely important in the effectiveness and safety of an adjustment.
When you “self crack” what happens most of the time is that you are “cracking” a joint or joints that are hypermobile (too much motion), and you are simply creating instability in these joints instead of addressing the problem.

If I start treatment do I have to continue for the rest of my life?
Just as it wouldn’t make sense to believe that visiting a dentist once per lifetime would ensure permanently healthy teeth and gums it’s equally as silly to think that visiting a chiropractor a few times will ensure a lifelong healthy spine.
Our spinal tissues undergo daily bombardment of stresses originating from bad postural habits, suboptimal work environments, psychological stress, and hectic lifestyles just to name a few. We can work with you to ensure your health throughout all stages of your life.
