Adjustments make changes to the spinal alignment. When a change happens to the skeletal alignment, the attached muscles can be sore from adapting to that change.
This is similar to the change that happens when you go through a work out. Soreness is a normal response. The best way to combat that is to get adjustments as part of your routine and use a combination of moist heat, stretching, and icing.
Consistency is key to improvement. We as a team are trying to establish new patterns in your body.
Just like any changes you want to make in your body, it will never happen overnight.
The short answer to this is yes, but you’ve needed chiropractic your whole life. Keeping your spine in proper alignment and moving properly is essential to quality of life. The earlier you start maintaining this, the better your results. As we age, essentially tread comes off our tires. (Nothing stops degeneration entirely, aging is obviously a natural process.) Chiropractic works to slow down this process, and in combination with proper nutrition and exercise can work very effectively to keep you younger, longer!
