Tips to maximise the benefits of our Chiropractic Care post adjustment

Tips to maximise the benefits of our Chiropractic Care post adjustment

At Thrive Health Co. we get a lot of patients asking what to expect after their Chiropractic Care adjustment. Here are some tips on how to continue feeling the benefits long after the adjustments:

  • It is crucial to go for a 5-10 minute walk directly following your adjustment in order to maximise the benefits of our care.
  • Do not sit for more than 30 minutes if possible. Avoid sitting in recliners and soft couches.
  • Do not use heat for pain relief. This will increase the swelling.
  • Some soreness may be noticed after the adjustment. This is your body’s way of telling you to avoid physical stresses while you are healing.
  • To help reduce pain and swelling, apply an ice pack that is wrapped in a cloth or paper towel to the area that we suggest for 20 minutes. Remove for one hour.  Repeat this as needed.
  • Walk as much as possible. If you cannot walk, crawl.  Motion is good.  However, if a particular motion causes discomfort, avoid it.  g.  if it hurts to bend forward, avoid bending forward.
  • Drink large amounts of water. This will help flush toxins from your body and help your body heal.
  • You spend about 1/3 of your life in bed. Sleep on a good supportive mattress and pillow.
  • Sleep on your back or your side. Never sleep on your stomach.  It is best for your legs to be flexed at a 30-45 degree angle when sleeping on your side.
  • If you feel better, tell us.  It is important that we be made aware of improvement.
  • Follow these recommendations.  There is no substitute for carefully timed chiropractic adjustments.
