Is Chiropractic treatment painful ?
Chiropractic treatment is usually not painful. At TRINITY Chiropractic, we interview and examine joints and muscle carefully to identify problems, then we use minimum force necessary to approach the problems. It rarely hurt during treatment.
Is there anything I should bring with me when seeing a chiropractor?
No. We ask patients to change clothes so that we can accurately and smoothly carry out examinations. We have more than enough T-shirts and loose pants at the clinic, so you do not have to bring your clothes of your own. In case you wish to bring your own clothes, loose and thin clothes would be suitable for chiropractic treatment.
