What to Expect During a Chiropractic Adjustment

Are you considering chiropractic care to address back pain, neck pain, injury recovery, or other health concerns? At Harwood Chiropractic & Massage Centre in Ajax, Ontario, our experienced chiropractors and team are committed to helping you achieve optimal health. This blog post explores who might benefit from chiropractic care and what to expect during your first chiropractic adjustment.


Determining if Chiropractic Care is Right for You

Your initial visit to our clinic will involve a consultation. We'll provide you with forms to gather information about your medical history. During your consultation with a chiropractor, you'll discuss your symptoms in detail. The chiropractor will explain their recommended treatment plan and address any potential risks associated with chiropractic care for your specific condition. If you and the chiropractor agree to proceed, you may receive your first adjustment on the same day as your consultation.

What to Expect During Your First Adjustment

For your chiropractic adjustment, you'll remain fully clothed while lying comfortably on the treatment table. The chiropractor will gently examine and potentially palpate (touch) the areas causing you discomfort. They will then use controlled, targeted thrusts to specific areas of your spine with the goal of improving alignment.

Understanding the Adjustment Experience

Chiropractic adjustments shouldn't be painful. If you experience any discomfort during the adjustment, communicate this to your chiropractor immediately. They can modify their approach to ensure your comfort. While some patients experience immediate pain relief after an adjustment, for others, the benefits of improved alignment may take some time to become noticeable.

A Personalized Treatment Plan for Optimal Results

Your chiropractor will discuss the frequency of recommended adjustments to support your ongoing health. They may also recommend additional therapies, such as the Graston Technique (a tool-assisted massage therapy) to further enhance your healing process.
