If you've never been to a chiropractor, you might be wondering if chiropractic can help your back pain. Since your first experience can feel scary, schedule with someone with the experience and knowledge you can trust. If you are wondering if chiropractic can help with your back, here are a few questions to ask. When you are sitting or moving, do you feel stiff and tight muscles? Do the muscles in your spine sometime grab or do you feel pinching? Is it causing radiation into other limbs or headaches? These are all situations that chiropractors are familiar with and that chiropractic can help.

If you are wondering how to choose a chiropractor, first find someone you trust and who takes the time to understand your problem and give you honest thorough answers, even when you don't want to hear them. I sometimes need to tell my patients that their progress will be measured in years, not weeks. They don't want to hear this but it is true. If someone is promising a quick fix, they probably aren't legit. If you'd like to learn more about my office

An important thing to note, many times adjustments to your spine are comfortable and the relief is immediate. It is not unusual however to get sore.

If this happens during your adjustment, just know that not all of your treatments will be this way and hang in for the long haul. The process will improve with time, especially as your learn to relax your body and work together with your chiropractor. Read here to learn more about back pain and chiropractic.
