Does getting adjusted hurt? This is one of the most common questions asked by patients who are new to chiropractic care. Most of the time getting adjusted is not uncomfortable at all. However, if there is an injury involving the joints there may be some minor and temporary discomfort. It is important to remember that the purpose of adjusting is to restore normal motion and alignment which more often has a pain relieving effect. Typically, patients will experience pain relief very soon after the adjustment.
