DOES CHIRO HAVE SIDE EFFECTS
I AM THINKING OF SEEING A CHIRO FOR LOWER BACK PAIN.
ARE THERE ANY POSITIVE / NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS AFTER JOINT MANIPULATION? HOW LONG SHOULD TREATMENT GO ON FOR?

Some patients may experience a little more pain and stiffness after the first one or two treatments. This is a natural reaction. You are experiencing pain etc - and now the doctor needs to work on that already irritated area - thus some reaction can be expected. Follow up treatments are necessary and a good response can usually be expected after the second or third treatment. Most cases on average respond very well within 6 to 8 treatments.
