How Chiropractic Visits Work
The first visit will last 30-45 minutes, during which we will discuss your issue and your goals with care. Examination will lead to diagnosis, which will be tested through treatment. We will be looking for improved mobility, decreased pain, increased strength, etc. to guide the treatment.
Sessions thereafter generally last 10-20 minutes, depending on many factors. Please remember to wear comfortable clothes that allow for full movement.
Most conditions will show improvement within 1-3 sessions.
What to Expect After Treatment
Many people have next day soreness in the areas that were worked on, akin to the soreness one has if they worked out a muscle very hard. This should only last 24-36 hours. Ice should be used judiciously post-treatment, and we will talk about the frequency and duration of its use.
You may experience changes in symptom intensity, location, or quality, and find that joints throughout the body will pop and crack more or less than usual. These are good indications that we have made a positive change in the structure and function of the body.
