Does chiropractic treatment hurt?

Chiropractic treatment is usually painless unless an area is inflamed. If this is the case your chiropractor may alter the treatment to make it as comfortable as possible. Our chiropractors’ are trained in not only chiropractic manipulation but dry needling, soft tissue work, and taping and it maybe that a combination of these will work best.

It is also not uncommon to feel uncomfortable or stiff for a short time after treatment but this usually lasts only a day or so. It is important you talk to your chiropractor if you feel worried about anything either during or after treatment.
