Is chiropractic care painful?

Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness, stiffness, or aching, just as they do after some form of exercise.

There are a variety of techniques in the chiropractic profession. Dr Javurek mainly utilizes manual adjusting, drop table adjusting, and the arthrostim (low force adjusting tool) to deliver the adjustment.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?
