Quite the contrary. Many patients feel instant relief immediately after their treatments. In fact, most look forward to their chiropractic treatments. In patients suffering from severe bouts of back or neck pain, some discomfort may be experienced for obvious reasons, however, for most patients this is not the case.  Often times in the case of a rib issue, it can be uncomfortable before you even come in, and when something is that sore, it can be a little uncomfortable momentarily to fix it.  It is very important to notice that if it is the first time you’ve had an adjustment, or the first time you’ve been back to the chiropractor in a while, it is common that you will get a little sore over the course of the next 1 or 2 days. This is a very good response as it is your body responding directly to the physical change that was initiated by the adjustment.
