Sacramento CA Chiropractor Helps Patients Live Pain-Free (And Not Hate The Process)

At our Sacramento CA Chiropractor office, our patients often wonder why chiropractic adjustments feel good.

They often feel general euphoria or pleasure in the adjusted area after getting an adjustment.

So why do chiropractic adjustments feel good?

That’s a great question!

There are two very different ways chiropractic care helps patients feel good.

  • First, they often increase blood flow and allow the area that was adjusted to relax. This can lead to local pain relief or even pleasure in the area that was adjusted.
  • The other way chiropractic adjustments make patients feel good is by giving patients a boost in endorphins.

If you want to know more about how and why adjustments feel good, you are in the right place.

Why Do Adjustments Feel Good (Explained)

Local Ease or pleasure

There are several reasons why adjustments can lead to local ease or pleasure.

  1. Adjustments can reduce body aches and pains. This pain relief alone can feel great if the person who experiences it has already gotten used to having joint pain in that area.
  2. Adjustments can increase joint mobility, drastically reducing discomfort within normal ranges of motion.

General Euphoria (well-being)

When a chiropractor manipulates your joints back into alignment, several health benefits can occur that lead to euphoria:

  1. The nervous system may be stimulated by adjustments, which can cause the nervous system to release endorphins and other organic feel-good chemical compounds into your brain and body.
  2. Following an adjustment, you could experience heightened energy and concentration due to the more efficient functioning of the nervous system and improved blood and oxygen flow to the brain.

How Long Does It Take For Chiropractic Care To Feel Good?

This is actually a common question for patients suffering from more difficult conditions. However, for some patients, this question may seem comical because they enjoyed their adjustments since their very first visit.

That’s right, most of our patients enjoy their adjustments starting their very first visit.

We encourage you to remember that each individual is unique, and the factors that influence whether adjustments feel positive can differ from person to person due to the severity of their conditions and genetic predispositions.
