Patients sometimes experience immediate relief from their pain. Sometimes chiropractic procedures may be uncomfortable if the area requiring attention is already sore and inflamed, or if the person has a tendency to resist and ‘tense up’. However, common sense will ensure these sore areas are taken into account. Chiropractic procedures, which mostly involve spinal and other limb ‘adjustments’, are not inherently painful. Other procedures such as trigger point work, stretches and massage can be uncomfortable, however most people actually enjoy having these sore areas attended to this way.
