Side Effects of Adjustments

Mechanicsville Virginia Chiropractor – It isn’t too unusual for me to hear about positive changes that come with adjustments. I came across this article that went back to evaluate previous surveys on positive outcomes for alternative therapies (CAM) of which chiropractic is the largest subset. In other words the survey was looking at side-effects. Well we are in luck, you don’t have to worry about the negative things we have come to think of as “side-effects.”

Just look at all the terrible things that might happen if you go to the chiropractor! (tongue firmly placed in cheek). “…outcome themes included increased options and hope, increased ability to relax, positive changes in emotional states, increased body awareness, changes in thinking that increased the ability to cope with back pain, increased sense of well-being, improvement in physical conditions unrelated to back pain, increased energy, increased patient activation, and dramatic improvements in health or well-being.”
