Through adjustments to skeletal misalignment, chiropractors are making subtle shifts to structures which have often been in dysfunctional positions for months or years. As a result, improvement predictions cannot be generalised and are dependent on your own individual symptom acuteness and duration. Discomfort could be reduced in as little as 20 minutes, however if your misalignment is structurally embedded, improvement is likely to be gradual over a 24-72 hour period.
A treatment plan is most commonly recommended to ensure the benefits of chiropractic adjustments are maintained. Since many dysfunctions have been in place for a sustained period of time, consistency can be required to encourage alignment. Your chiropractor will discuss their predictions with you during your appointment.
