It typically fades away within an hour.
3. Are chiropractic treatments safe for children?
Children can indeed benefit from the services of a chiropractor. Children's active lifestyles make them more prone to sustaining injuries from trauma to their bodies from sports or accidents like falls. Such injuries are often accompanied by pain and other symptoms, like soreness and stiffness.
Chiropractic care can help treat the pain and speed up the healing process. It also restores the child’s mobility. All this is done without a need for medication.

These healthcare professionals complete four years of pre-medical undergraduate study and up to five years of chiropractic college. They have an extensive understanding of human anatomy, physiology, neurology, and orthopedics.
6. What goes on during a chiropractic adjustment is performed?
A chiropractic adjustment is a manual therapy that involves manipulating the patient’s joints to restore proper alignment, reduce pain, and address inflammation. It is a highly controlled treatment that rarely causes discomfort. Many patients report noticeable improvements to their condition immediately after their treatment.
7. How long does chiropractic care last?
That often comes down to the severity of the condition that the patient is dealing with. Most patients need multiple treatments to resolve their issues. The chiropractor might show them exercises that they can perform on their own to ensure that the condition does not reoccur after their treatment.
