This is a common concern of new patients walking in the door…or in my case, me walking into their door. I do mainly make house calls, you know! After experiencing their first adjustment, it’s a totally different story and they’re looking forward to a future visit.
The truth is that being adjusted is not a painful procedure and many patients, including children, pregnant women and senior citizens, feel instant relief immediately afterwards.
And for those of you who just are wierded out by the “popping” noise that sometimes occurs when someone gets an adjustment…know that I also use techniques that are even gentler and don’t produce a pop at all.
Now, adjustments that are not performed properly could cause discomfort and even increase pain, so do your homework and be sure that your chiropractor is licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and adheres to individualized care.
