Most of my patients have come to enjoy and look forward to the spinal adjustments I provide. They generally feel good, but can be slightly uncomfortable for the first-timer. This can be for a number of reasons. First, because the patient may have become accustomed to his/her poor alignment and the body may at first try to reject the correction. This is always very temporary and can be a very easy phase to pass through. Also a patient in poor general health from dehydration, poor nutrition obesity or possibly a musculoskeletal disorder may have slight discomfort for the first 1-2 treatments. After that however, it should feel physically easier and ironically is probably exactly what the body needs to allow correction and movement into stagnated areas.
