Q: Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?
A: No. Adjustments are typically painless and feel great. However, sometimes you will notice soreness after an adjustment. The soreness is like that experienced after a workout.
Q: Does acupuncture hurt?
A: Most needles are not even felt when inserted. The needles used are about the size of a pore on your skin. There are certain points used that are noticeable, but it is very mild.
First Visit: What to expect.
On your first visit, we ask that you complete the new patient forms online, if possible. Once you have arrived at our clinic, you will be greeted warmly by our front desk staff. Once with Dr. Johnson, he will go over your health history and current injuries. This is followed by a thorough examination of the body to correctly diagnose the issue at hand. After the exam is finished and there is a working diagnosis, Dr. Johnson typically will treat on the first visit if there are no contraindications to treatment. You will then receive a personalized home exercise program recommendation and further care will be recommended, if necessary.
