Do chiropractic adjustments usually hurt?

Not Typically. Chiropractic is typically a very comfortable procedure, however, during acute phases, when tissues are already inflamed and there is some discomfort, the adjustment may be somewhat sensitive. Talk to your Doctor of Chiropractic and express any concerns. There are over 300 chiropractic techniques, some involving instruments, or specialized table to make you more comfortable. .
To a minor degree. Chiropractors offer a deep massage which can relieve some discomfort but in the short run such vigorous massage can cause some degree of pain. Always first see your family doctor or orthopedic specialist for back and neck pain to rule out anything serious.
