Avatar f tn Can a chiropractic adjustment cause fever? I just had one a little while ago, the first in several years, to help with SI joint pain, and on the way home I suddenly felt flushed and achy, like I had the flu. When I checked my temp it was 99.5. Would this be a result of the adjustment?
Avatar f tn JackieCalifornia- got the MRI because of my back pain after the chiropractic adjustment (I wanted to rule out injury). They did find 2 bulging disks in my spine that had never bothered me before the chiropractor. I'm assuming the adjustments must have activated them or something as he would have to have applied alot of force to cause them to bulge. However, alot of people have bulging disks and mine aren't pinching nerves so they really shouldn't cause pain.
Avatar n tn Chiropractic care has been helpful to many BUT a lot of people who come to this site have never been diagnosed and are looking for information because their cases are out of the ordinary. Everyone, Please be very careful before getting a chiropractic adjustment before a firm diagnosis is made. Smith2007, if you're a chiropractor are you Dr. Smith? Could you please explain how a chiropractic adjustment can relieve the pain of a severe common migraine.
Avatar f tn I do get adjusted very often. However, I do know some sorness is normal after an adjustment. Also, I have never done any kind of stretching that was recommended by the doctor.
Avatar m tn I have had whiplash too many times than I care to count and I know when I need a chiropractic adjustment because I will wake up with horrible ear pain. I recommend that you either find a way to get a good massage or go to a chiropractor for an adjustment. If you have never had neck problems before you might just need a nice neck massage.
Avatar f tn My legs do that too. Usually I'll go in for a chiropractic adjustment and that helps. The only time it doesn't help is when my son is pinching the nerve.
Avatar n tn m hoping it heals overnight? Can a chiropractic adjustment loosen things to the point where things may be more vulnerable to slipping out of place? I really don't want to ask him...like I said..he's a friend, so I don't want him to think I am distrustful of chiropractic techniques. What would cause my back to give out without warning otherwise?
Avatar m tn You answered a question about chiropractic care helping spinal stenosis and stated an adjustment wouldn't help. Are there surgical options for opening a narrowing spinal pathway?
Avatar f tn ve also been to my general practitioner who send me to the second emergency room trip to have an MRI of my neck and head done because she feared that an artery in my neck had been torn because of the chiropractic adjustment and that I might be bleeding into my brain, and might have a stroke. I have seen a neurologist who basically laughed in my face and said you haven't had a stroke yet, nothing's wrong with you neurologically.
Avatar n tn I do once a month neck adjustments at a chiropractic clinic. Is it safe for me to have an adjustment 2 1/2 weeks after the laser procedure?
Avatar n tn iT HAD BEEN 18 MONTHS SINCE AN ADJUSTMENT NEEDED. I WAS SORE ALL OVER AFTER THE FIRST RECENTLY. DR JOHN BERGMAN DC MD SAID THAT A GOOD CHIROPRACTOR INCITES INFLAMMATION IN THE JOINTS TO HEAL. CHIRO IS ABOUT NERVES NOT BONES, IT YOUR NERVES DOENT FUNCTION YOU WILL BE OR ARE ILL. I HAD THE DIZZYNESS AND NO CRACKING THE NECK BUT RESISTANCE TRAINING OF THE NECK. TODAY IT HAPPENED AND I FELT DIZZY AND UNCOORDINATED. ONE HOUR LATER MOST IS GONE.
Avatar n tn I remember seeing in this forum that chiropractor makes things worse and other websites saying some people get brainstem stroke after chiropractic adjustment and die. It is really really scary!!! I want to ask if anyone went to him or heard about him ( or other CORRECTIVE chiropractors), your info would help us a lot! Thank you very much!
1698676 tn?1306857829 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! I am sorry to hear about your father. Either he suffered another mini stroke or he is still reeling from the previous stroke. It can also be post stroke Alzheimer's pr Parkinson's disease. Another possibility is restless leg syndrome. I suggest you re-consult his neurologist and get this assessed. He may need an adjustment in the medication and further tests to diagnose the cause. A MRI should be done. Take care!
Avatar m tn sometimes after an chiropractic adjustment or I get severly bloated from eating My heart rate jumps to 128bpm and swelling of my muscles (after the adjustments) and lasts for hrs if I lay down it slowly comes down to the 90s to the 80s but if I stand up it goes back up. it will eventually go back to the 60s after I relax and the swelling goes down. I am 53 and my blood pressure has been anywhere from 100-124 on top to 72-76 on the bottom what causes this and should I be concerned????
Avatar f tn A chiropractor can fix this. My Chiropractic fixed mine with only one adjustment. I still have to watch and try not to chew gum or anything very chewy or it will act up. Symptoms of TMJ are jaw hurts, pain goes up to your temples and to your head. You get the worse headache imaginable. My suggestion to you is find a good Chiropractic that has plenty of experience adjusting for TMJ, it does not hurt, just ackward. You will feel so much better if that is what is causing your symptoms.
Avatar n tn Frequency of adjustments is a hot button issue in chiropractic. I don't personally believe that there is a cookie-cutter number of adjustments for any given problem... however, 6-visits in two weeks isn't outrageous. Everyone is different, and the doctor's adjusting method is a big factor too. In my practice, I find that if a patient with TMJ is going to respond favorably, it generally happens within 1-2 weeks...
Avatar f tn This one is the most common one for people ages 30-60 which is also considered young for a stroke. And what generally causes it is trauma from a car accident, chiropractic treatment, sneezing, coughing, or just spontaneously for no reason. That's the kind of stroke that I had, totally out of the blue with no risk factors. But given the many young people who answered that posting, strokes do just happen to very young people with no reason. So sorry that it happened to you.
Avatar f tn I got an MRI the other day and used hearing protection but afterwards my ears hurt badly and they felt full. I had back pain caused by a chiropractic adjustment and massage (Lyme related I'm sure) and that immediately disappeared after the MRI and the ear pain took its place! Do you think the Lyme jumped to my ears because they were irritated by the loud noise causing an overreaction? My body seems to overreact to everything right now.
Avatar f tn I had an injury at work from picking up a large binder off of the floor. I had a sharp pain in my left lower lumbar. ( I work as a Medical Assistant for a chiropractor.) I advised one of the chiropractors of what had happened and he suggested I let him do a manual manipulation to "fixed" the issue. He did the sideways method, it didn't feel good at all. He said to wait an hour then repeat after applying I've for 15 minutes. The second "adjustment" hurt even more.

Avatar f tn Go get acupuncture and a chiropractic adjustment :) I don't think castor oil is safe, you'd have to eat 7-9 whole pineapples, walking only helps when labor starts, prunes same thing you'd have to eat them ALL day... Evening primrose oil might help, same with sex. But I'd still go get acupuncture and an adjustment 1st. Good luck!
Avatar n tn d have to live with it the rest of my life, but it turns out, all I needed was a Chiropractic adjustment. I went to Dr. Toy in Lawton, OK, and he worked wonders. My hearing came back A LOT after the first adjustment, and the sound wasn't as loud, but after a couple more adjustments, the sound completely went away a few months later. I think an artery was out of line or twisted or something like that. Dr.
