Why am I still in pain after my first adjustment?

This is a very common question that I get asked when patients come in after the first adjustment. While, this answer is very simple and even more complicated than they may know at that time.

Ice Ice Baby

One of the biggest questions I get asked is… whether you should ice or heat when experiencing pain or stiffness.
