View Full Version : Chiropractic Adjustment
08-27-2006, 04:34 AM
On Friday I was adjusted for the first time by a chiropractor for incredible lower right side hip, back, coccyx, and leg pain. The adjustments left me inflammed and tired, and more sore than before. Is this normal? My IC symptoms were at an all time low since I was dx in Feb 06, but after the adjustment I had an increase in frequency and burning, and had to take Ativan to sleep which I hadn't had to do for a couple of weeks. I did have an organic root beer watered down with ice, but that didn't seem to bother me. It was really after the adjustment that I felt worse. Any views? Thanks.

Sometimes after you first have an adjustment done, you might feel worse at first as your spine gets used to the manipulation. But usually you will start to feel better in a few days. You may want to put some ice on the areas that feel sore. I get adjusted regularly and sometimes I do feel more sore afterward, but if I put some ice on the area that night, I usually do feel a lot better the next day.

I 've been seeing a chiropractor for the last few weeks. i hurt my back. I haven't really noticed much of a change in my symptoms although been under alot of stress so I see more going on w/my ic now from that. It has helped my back!

Okay so I guess the adjustment really didn't have anything to do with my IC getting worse, which I might add is back to where is was thank God!! Thanks for the info.

I go to a chiropractor atleast once a month, sometimes twice and have been since my car accident in 1987. Depending on where he has to make the adjustments, yes it can bother my bladder and other times doesn't effect it at all. I agree with poetgirl, try some ice on the area that is bothering you, most likely a little inflammed from the adjustment. Give it a couple days and hopefully you will start to feel better again !
