Chiropractic: Do I have to receive an adjustment with a chiropractic treatment?
No, you do not. If you are not comfortable with getting adjusted, that is fine! Often times, a chiropractor will use several other techniques to help relieve pain in the area of complaint, not just adjustments. We use other techniques that include mobilizations, soft tissue therapy, ultrasound therapy, IFC, instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy, and exercise rehabilitation at our multidisciplinary clinic.
