If you are heading for a chiropractic adjustment, here are a few things you can do before and after your session to ensure you get the most out of your chiropractic care and experience the full benefits.

Before After
  1. Please fill out chiropractic/integrated physical medicine consent form.
  2. Take note of where pain areas are and mark on the consent form (circle primary pain).
  3. Hydrate well prior to adjustment to avoid getting lightheaded or dizzy from procedure.
  4. Eat a light meal prior, make sure you are not too full or the procedure may be uncomfortable.
  5. Wear loose, comfortable clothing to your chiropractic adjustment appointment.
  1. Continue to hydrate well and avoid alcohol and sugar to not worsen dehydration and inflammation.
  2. Physical activity is promoted but NOT strenuous activity within the 24 hours of the adjustment.
  3. Mind-Body connection is important so if your body needs to heal, please rest and allow the body to get used to the changes post-adjustment.
  4. To help make the benefits of adjustments long lasting, please adhere to recommendations for rehabilitation or exercise.

Disclaimer: During the adjustment, you may hear a “pop” noise and/or sensation as bones are moving and being realigned. You may feel uncomfortable and/or notice relief, which may or may not be immediate. It should not be painful or long lasting. Affects of an adjustment may wear off after a few days.
