Any time you change the 'program' with the body, it can be normal to get a little sore. This can be the case after the initial visit and sometimes even after the second visit. It is not necessarily normal but it is not abnormal either. One could compare it to going to the gym for the first time in a long time and getting sore for a day or two afterward. If this is the case, a heating pad and some simple stretching usually help quickly and easily.
Although we are used to seeing fast results in our chiropractic clinic in Amarillo, TX, it is normal to not see the results hoped for in the first visit or two. Do not despair. Certainly in the case of chronic pain. It is the consistent treatment schedule that helps us yield the results we get in our patients. Results in our chiropractic office also depend on what kind of teammate you are. What we mean is, if the patients are doing their exercises at home dependably and are keeping proper biomechanics and our recommendations in mind as they go through their activities or normal daily living, they usually achieve outstanding and impressive results.
If there is a failure to respond to care, you can expect us to dive in a little deeper by obtaining imaging if not already in hand. You can expect us to alter treatment in an attempt to resolve the condition. In the end, if we simply cannot get satisfactory improvement, we will try to find you a healthcare practitioner that can.
