Do Adjustments Hurt?

Dr Hallin


Adjustments are usually pain-free.  They can sometimes be uncomfortable depending on how much inflammation and tension is in the affected area. Some patients notice mild tenderness for 12 -24 hours after their first adjustment which is completely normal.  This tenderness can be relieved by ice and gentile stretching.  Other patients experience an immediate relief from their symptoms.
