You should not only rest after your first adjustment but please make sure you drink plenty of water. You may even be a little sore depending on the severity of the situation. The reason why is that the adjustment will be releasing toxins from your joints, and the only way to flush those toxins is with water or rest. READ MORE

Good morning. An issue that lasts more than 3 months is definitely chronic vs acute, so you're definitely right. There are 7 vertebrae in your neck that allows you to move your head in all directions with the assistance of several neck muscles. If you feel a strain especially when turning your head towards a particular direction, then it can be a pulled muscle due to possibly sleeping wrong or from lifting something too heavy. Our neck muscles attach directly to the vertebrae in our neck... and if that muscle pulls too hard for too long, it then causes the vertebrae to shift out of alignment. Any vertebrae that shift out of place can easily put pressure on the nerve that comes out of it. Any pressure on the nerve leads to excruciating pain... to where sometimes even pain meds can't even touch. Signs of a pinched nerve would be numbness, tingling, and pins/needles especially down the arm and into the hands. So, to answer your question, yes Chiropractic can definitely help. READ MORE
Good evening, I hope all is well. A rounded shoulder can definitely be treated with chiropractic care. Rounded shoulders can usually be associated with poor posture, a weak core, and even a condition called Upper Cross Syndrome. So, even though we move the bones, there will be a lot of self-made habits that will have to change for long-term results. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please let me know.
