  • Somewhat, it takes a few more visits to really feel relieve.

  • It all depends on the individual.  I felt no relief at all my first time.  It was a gradual process that took a year of regular appointments to go from chronic pain to pain free but it was well worth it.

  • Yeah, totally normal. I would go and get realigned before my physical therapy on my ankle, because being on the crutches put my entire body out of wrack. I would feel good to start with, than very sore and stiff the next day, than fine after that.

  • yep.....I felt the same way when I first went too!

  • Yup, very normal...which is why a lot of people don't think a chiropractor actually helps them...because they quit going after the initial visit. It takes a few visits before all the stiffness is worked out...then you can look forward to that "wonderful" for longer periods after your visit :)
