What to Expect Before and After Your First Adjustment
If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you may be wondering what to expect during your first visit. First off, we’d like to thank you for putting your health first and deciding to give chiropractic care a try! We bet you’re going to love the results, gentle techniques, and natural wellness.
Here are a few things you can expect before, during, and after your first visit with us.
Before your adjustment, we will ask you about your medical history and any current pain or symptoms you’re experiencing. This helps us best understand your problem areas and why you’re seeking care. We may also perform a physical examination to help us determine the best possible way to care for you.
Next comes your adjustment, which will be entirely custom to what your body needs. We’re proud to be able to utilize a variety of techniques dependent on what will work best for you. We want you to know that adjustments with us are entirely comfortable, gentle, and never forceful. If you’re nervous about receiving an adjustment, we’ll do our best to walk you through the entire process so there are never any surprises. While not everyone does, if you hear a ‘popping’ sound, that’s entirely normal. The goal of an adjustment is to restore balance and proper alignment to your spine.
After the adjustment, most people feel great! Some patients may feel soreness in the adjusted area, but this will likely dissipate over the coming hours and days. We hope you’ll notice that you feel more relaxed and have less muscle tension. We typically recommend making sure that you stay hydrated, as this is always beneficial for your health.
