Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?
Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours. A South Jordan Chiropractor will recommend home care to assist in alleviating any discomfort you may feel.
A Cooperative Profession
In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.
Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
“The source that created the body, heals the body”
The foundation of chiropractic is built on the truth that health is the body’s normal state and good health is perfectly natural. Chiropractors know that the body possesses a unique internal wisdom that continually strives to maintain a state of good health. The body’s internal knowledge is also the guiding, healing force which allows our body to self-heal and self-regulate, permitting us to adapt naturally to the influences of the internal and external environment.
