How will I feel after my appointment?

You may feel better straight away, or you might experience some stiffness or tiredness, particularly after your first session. These effects should last no more than 48 hours and are signs that your body is responding well.

Common side effects:

  • Muscle stiffness or soreness
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Emotional sensitivity, including feeling tearful
  • Dizziness & light-headedness
  • Changes in your menstrual cycle

After each session, drink plenty of water and rest as much as possible. In the event that you feel dizzy or light-headed, avoid driving until you feel better.

It is important that you talk to your chiropractor if you feel worried about anything either during or after treatment.
