Not everyone will react to a chiropractic adjustment the same way. For most, the effects of an adjustment are felt immediately. Misalignments, referred to as subluxations, will often restrict normal nerve flow to the affected area. Therefore, after an adjustment, many people report feeling a surge of energy, more limber, and relaxed.
However, as a chiropractic adjustment can repair an area of the body which has experienced normal nerve energy interference for weeks, months, or even years, there can be minor discomfort as the body adjusts to corrected alignment. Some soreness can be expected, although it is normally very mild and temporary.
