As balance is restored to spinal structures and proper nerve function returns, you may notice a change in the character of your symptoms before you begin to feel better. 

This may include but is not limited to:

  • Pins and needles in fingers or toes
  • Heat or warmth in spinal muscles
  • An itchy or tingling sensation
  • Discomfort or stiffness in a new area
  • Pain that switches sides
  • A temporary worsening of pain

These reactions are common for many people after their first adjustment or two, so don’t be alarmed if you experience them. We would love for your discomfort and other symptoms to just simply disappear, but healing doesn’t always happen that way.

Most reactions of this type subside quickly, but if you have any questions about what you’re feeling, please ask me. 

On a personal note…

It is difficult enough to choose natural methods for your health concerns without being subjected to the advice and/or doubts of well-meaning friends or relatives (and let’s not forget “Dr. Google”). Advice of this nature, although it costs nothing, is usually worth exactly that.

Since you have placed your trust and confidence in me, please allow me to advise you on matters relating to your care. The only person qualified to give you chiropractic advice is a licensed doctor of chiropractic.

Above all, be a patient patient. Healing takes time.
