Are Chiropractic Adjustments Safe?

Pentz Family Chiropractic Life Center


Chiropractic is recognized widely as a safe, non-invasive approach.  Chiropractic has an excellent safety record, often times patients will experience relief immediately or shortly after following a Chiropractic adjustment.  On occasion, a patient may have some soreness or aching afterward.  This is uncommon, but a normal occurrence and will typically last less than 24 hours.  Patients are advised to use ice conservatively to relieve discomfort. 


A Chiropractic adjustment works to improve joint mobility, restore range of motion and reduce muscle spasm to relieve tension on the nerves and spinal cord.  It is important for you, the patient, to be specific about the types of symptoms you are experiencing.  You and your Doctor will go through a thorough examination to determine the cause of your symptoms, not just attempt to cover them up like traditional medicine.


If you have any questions in regards to your care, do not hesitate to contact us.  We will be happy to explain and clear up any questions you may have.
