Will it hurt?

In the early days of chiropractic, practitioners used methods that were "firm," to say the least. While they were effective, they were often considered uncomfortable. Today's modern chiropractor is so gentle that there should be no discomfort to speak of with any treatment. The percentage of female doctors is growing. A female doctor weighing one hundred pounds can administer treatment just as effectively as a large man.

Usually the most discomfort comes from getting on the examination or treatment table. The treatment itself is normally a most pleasant experience. Of course, if a patient is experiencing muscle spasm, any movement or pressure at all is uncomfortable.

The doctor of chiropractic collects a complete history, examines the patient, and performs tests to determine how to treat the problem painlessly. Therefore, pain is unlikely when the precise treatment is given.
