Are there any side effects?
Chiropractic treatment tends not to be painful. However, it can lead to temporary pains that quickly dissipate.
After your first chiropractic treatment, you may feel more tired than usual for the rest of the day. After a treatment, some patients’ skin reddens, and they also experience light pains in the treated area. Disc problems can become more acute during the initial stages of the treatment. The same is true for inflamed joints and soft tissue. Treatment of the cervical spine can sometimes be accompanied by mild dizziness or a short headache.
Chiropractic manipulations of joints with restricted flexibility often result in immediate improvement of the symptoms, and sometimes in a general improvement to the overall condition. There is, however, no miracle cure.
