It can also take a few hours or the next day before you feel soreness.

It is common to have bruising after treatment; some areas are more likely than others. Some common areas are shoulders, base of neck, head and face, arms and legs. Large bruising rarely occurs but can occur. Use ice to help decrease the bruising and if you feel concern please call our office.
It is common to feel tired, nauseous, emotional, giggly or “loopy”, and/or somewhat “out of it” after treatment. This is a normal response that can last up to an hour or two after treatment. If this lasts beyond a day contact our office as a precaution.
There are times when treatment may actually make your typical symptoms worse. This is normal. If this continues past the 24-48 hours be sure to inform the doctor and he will adjust your treatment based on your reaction.
