Starter’s Soreness


Starter's Spine

Starter’s soreness is common with many physical activities –  the ‘start’ of lifting weights, horseback riding or working in the garden after a long winter off.  ‘Starting’ Chiropractic care is no different.

If you have joints, muscles and ligaments that have been inactive, don’t be surprised if you’re sore after your first few Chiropractic sessions.  Adjustments themselves are gentle and comfortable, but your spine may respond with some soreness to the increased motion and new positioning.  But don’t worry – the pangs of rekindled function are normal, expected and temporary.

As your spine becomes accustomed to its healthier state, the soreness will abate and your comfort levels will improve.  It’s important to continue good chiropractic habits to avoid regressing back to where you began.  Start soreness can only return if you fail to maintain.
