Why does my neck hurt after the Chiropractor adjusted it?
It has been 5 hours since my adjustment and my neck still aches. Is this normal? Did he not really fix what needed fixing? I went to feel better, but I sure don't feel better.

he might have adjusted it wrong, i'd call his office and ask if you can go back in for no charge.

Your neck is probably just used to being out of place and it will take time for it to settle in place.

It should be a little bit sore.
If it continues hurting over fourty eight hours, call your chiropractor.

This type of treatment is very harsh and has side effects like what you are experiencing with short term relief to the problem but you will have to repeat this over and over again.
Massage will get to the route of the problem which isprobably muscle tention or an imbalance.

WOW I have been in healthcare for 25 yrs and no dr i know recomends a chiropractor.
I have seen so many with serious problems after having their necks "adjusted"
I would never go to one of them.

I think you should get yourself to a neurologist instead :)

Depending on how long your neck was needing to be adjusted, this is normal. Basically, your neck was used to being "out of alignment" for so long that now that it has been adjusted, the muscles in your neck are a bit 'out of whack', if you will. This is totally normal, it should go away within a few days and you'll feel much better :)

Shawn, in my experience this should not be the case. It is possible that the adjustment missed and is now the cause of the problems you are experiencing. If you are having any pain or numbness that is running down the arm or arms get to an emergency room immediately. These are neurological signs that pressure is being put upon the nerves of the neck. Use ice for 15 minutes about 4 times a day to decrease the pain. Do not use any aspirin or products that warn against the use of any aspirin as they will potentially cause a bleed that might be another problem. See an orthopedist about his condition and have them refer you to a physical therapist. There is a lot of literature out there recommending that people over the age of 40 not to have their necks adjusted for the potential for neurological problems is greater.

Unfortunately, it is very common. The pain you feel, however, should not be overlooked as it may be a sign of a more serious injury.

There is much disagreement about both the effectiveness and risks involved with chiropractic treatment. In my opinion, it is the only thing that should needs to be said about chiropractic adjustment:

A chiropractor cannot “cure” your condition or any other-- at best, they would just make your muscles feel better. It would be best to first see your doctor—a real physician—and be referred to a physical therapist or an orthopedic specialist. I would advise that your do everything you can to avoid chiropractic treatment, as it will often do more harm than good.

Chiropractors have to believe that everything causes conditions that only they can fix so they can convince patients that we can't live comfortably without visits twice per week.

I had a stroke last year as a result of chiropractic treatment and have since made it a priority to raise awareness of the dangers of chiropractic care. I ask that anyone going to visit a chiropractor to be aware of the risks and make an informed decision about treatment.

Although the chiropractic community will argue that I don’t have a degree and I don’t know what I am talking about, I only want to make sure people considering chiropractic treatment that there are risks. I have nothing to gain from this. Can chiropractors say the same? Make sure you get both sides of the story!
