What Should You Do After a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Many patients ask what they should do after a chiropractic adjustment to help it last longer or keep their pain from returning. They want to maintain the adjustment for as long as possible. During an adjustment, Dr. Oskardmay determines where to provide care based on areas of pain and imbalance, muscle tension, and spinal misalignment caused by everyday activities and habits. She readies each patient’s spinal region for mobilization using relaxing massage, which soothes taut fibers surrounding vertebrae. The office ambiance is serene because our goal is to create a relaxing environment where patients feel ready to let go of old patterns. We softly play calming music and may incorporate aromatherapy techniques, as well, to reduce stress and muscle tension. We maintain the comfortable room temperature and soft, clean adjustment tables for patient comfort and safety. After the adjustment, plan to rest on the table for a few minutes to allow the mind to relax. Relaxing after treatment is one of the most beneficial things you can do to gain the most from the procedure.

The adjustment itself is a relatively quick procedure, and the time before and after the treatment is crucial to enhance treatment goals. Patient comfort is vital, so always communicate with Dr. Oskardmay regarding any areas of pain or discomfort you may experience. In addition to massage, ambient lighting, comfortable tables, soft music, and aromatherapy, Dr. Oskardmay may suggest acupuncture or cupping massage with oils after a chiropractic adjustment to further your healing experience.

Acupuncture and meridian cupping massage is ancient therapies applied along specific body meridians which improve parasympathetic nervous system balance. Our parasympathetic nervous system invokes a calm healing response, restfulness, and digestion. Compared to the cortisol-fueled sympathetic nervous system side in charge when we are under stress, the PNS is relaxed, the SNS the storm. A licensed acupuncturist, Dr. Oskardmay, uses acupuncture to instill calm healing for patients after a chiropractic adjustment when requested.

At Acupractic Natural Healing Center, our goal is to help patients get well for the long term.
