Since spinal manipulation uses gentle, specific pressure, you should feel very little, if any, pain or discomfort. In fact, many people experience a sense of relief after their first visit. There are a variety of methods used in chiropractic care to analyze and adjust the spine. Your Pacific Coast Injury Network chiropractor will choose the most effective technique for you. Some of these techniques include Thompson, Cox (flexion distraction) and Med-x Spinal Rehabilitation. Your chiropractor will make sure the adjustment is as comfortable as possible. For a demonstration of how gentle a chiropractic adjustment can be, see the video link below of our Mission Valley Chiropractor treating a patient with a typical chiropractic adjustment.
