Adjustments at Riverton Chiropractic
What Are Adjustments and Do They Hurt?
Adjustments, sometimes referred to as “manipulations”, are quick, controlled movements.
These adjustments, performed with the chiropractor’s hands help to restore motion to the joints.
These also include management of injuries and condition of the extremeties, such as:
the joints in the back (lower and upper);
neck, including shoulders;
as well as other joints in the arms, legs, knees and hips.
In answer to your question: No, they don't hurt!
Most patients experience relief of aches and pains and improvements in movement with adjustments.
Yet, sometimes a patient can experience discomfort.
If you do, it is important to discuss this with your chiropractor.
There are alternative treatments or even different ways to adjust a joint, which you may find more comfortable.
