What are adjustments & do they hurt?
Adjustments, sometimes referred to as “manipulations”, are quick, controlled movements usually performed with the chiropractor’s hands that help to restore motion to the joints. These can be done on the joints in the back and neck as well as other joints in the arms and legs.
No, they don't hurt.
Most patients experience relief of aches and pains and improvements in movement with adjustments. However, 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.
