If you are new to the world of Chiropractic and have never visited a Chiropractor before, you may be curious as to how you’ll feel after your first adjustment.
Most of the people who visit our Marietta Chiropractic clinic for the first time are a bit nervous when they arrive since they often think that spinal adjustments consist of painful, cracking exercises.
This perception, mostly fueled by the media, could not be more wrong.
First Chiropractic Adjustment – Expectations
While our Marietta Chiropractors do provide the old fashioned adjustment techniques for those who are interested, we also offer a variety of highly effective techniques that do not solicit any type of “popping” or “cracking.”
Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
Many first-time patients come into our Marietta clinic wondering if their adjustment will hurt, as well as when they start to notice relief from whatever kind of pain they are experiencing.
Because each person’s recovery process is unique depending on the specifics of their pain or injury, there’s no complete way to describe how your body will react or respond to your first adjustment.
However, it is important to know that the results connected to Chiropractic Adjustments are often noticed almost immediately after the first session or examination.
What To Expect During Your First Chiropractic Visit
During your first Chiropractic examination or consultation, your Chiropractor will ask some questions that relate to your personal and family medical history, where you believe your pain stems from, what kinds of symptoms you’ve noticed, and if you have ever sustained some injury in the past.
Your Chiropractor will follow through with a complete examination and, in some cases, take some X-rays to learn more about your spine’s health, as well as to understand what type of treatment is most appropriate for your specific condition.
Chiropractic Adjustments Offer Immediate Pain Relief
Almost all of our new patients experience immediate pain relief following their first Chiropractic Adjustment.
For those who have suffered from various misalignments and chronic pain for years, the effects of our adjustments are even more recognizable.
While each person responds differently, most of our patients feel more relaxed and flexible after they leave our Marietta Chiropractic clinic.
Others report feeling an intense surge of energy since our Chiropractic techniques help repair nerve damage and stimulate appropriate circulatory responses.
In situations where a particular patient is being treated for severe to critical injuries, they may require an extended series of adjustments that are complemented with other common techniques such as:
- Deep tissue massage
- Ultrasound therapy
- Trigger point therapy
