BEST PRACTICES AFTER A TREATMENT
TAKE TIME OFF OF OTHER TREATMENTS
We take the time to understand the root of your problem in order to provide the best and most effective treatment. Through our years of experience, we’ve found that Assessment & Diagnosis is a crucial part of the recovery process.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
It’s no secret that water is absolutely vital to our well-being but staying hydrated following a chiropractic adjustment is something many people don’t think about. If you’ve ever come into our clinic for an adjustment, you’ve probably heard our doctors and staff talking about the importance of staying hydrated. While this may seem over redundant, we can assure you it is not. There are numerous reasons why hydration is so integral to your chiropractic experience.
It is important to not overexert yourself while you are under treatment for an accident or injury, as this could lead to increased pain. However, light exercise that strengthens your back and core muscles will help the body stay balanced after an adjustment. Yoga, long walks, and daily stretching are all great options.
PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO CHANGES
It is normal for spinal adjustments to affect how you feel, your muscle sensations, your posture, your respiration, and your mental and emotional states. Pay more attention to your body in the hours and days following an adjustment. Do you feel as if your innate posture has changed? Maybe you are standing taller, or sitting differently in your car. Your body will be positioning you differently as it re-organizes itself, and it is common for a person to notice changes immediately following an adjustment.
