Post-Treatment

What to expect after your appointment:

It is normal that you may feel discomfort or "under the weather" for 2-3 days after your appointment. It is also normal if you don't have discomfort. Your body typically needs 1-2 weeks to process the changes made. It is a common result of an effective treatment. During this processing, aches can move to various parts of the body. If it lasts longer than 3 days, it's possible that the treatment was too long for you or it exposed another issue that needs to be addressed. Please let me know if this happens to you.

 

What causes post-treatment discomfort?

It is most often from toxins being released from tight soft tissues, food being processed more fully, nerves adjusting to new (usually less) pressure and soft tissue and organs adjusting to new positions. If I use compressions or skin pulling to release restrictions from your soft tissues you may be very sore for many days.

What can I do to help my body process the changes?

  • Sip plenty water throughout the day to flush and hydrate your body, especially the first day.

  • Carefully crawl on your hands and knees like a baby in a random pattern for 2-3 minutes twice a day.

  • Walk at least 45 minutes a day 3-4 times a week. If your health doesn't allow it do shorter, multiple bursts of movement throughout the day.

  • Use a heating pad or hot water bottle on your abdomen for 10-15 minutes morning and night.

And the most exciting question: how can I measure progress with my pain or condition?

  1. Intensity: Is it less intense? Measure it on a scale from 1 (very mild) to 10 (very severe).

  2. Frequency: Does it occur less frequently? Measure it by how often you experience it in hours, days or weeks.

  3. Duration: Does it last for less time? Measure it in minutes, hours, days, weeks, etc.

If you have noticeable progress in 1 or more of these areas, you are on the right path for healing and recovery!​
