What's Your Response?

Dear Dr. Caraotta,

I have never been to a Chiropractic Physician and don’t know what to expect. Could I expect progressive relief from pain, or will I get worse before I get better?


Dr. Caraotta's Response

When new patients who are unfamiliar with chiropractic and orthopedic rehabilitation come to our office, they often have a variety of questions regarding responses that they may experience. Some have heard of “miracle” cases in which a patient was carried into a chiropractic facility and was able to dance on the way out with instant relief! Others have heard of individuals who experienced an increase in achiness after their initial treatment. We see both responses in our clinic and the initial response does not necessarily indicate the severity of the condition or duration of time that it will take to bring a person to pre-injury status.

Since we treat a myriad of spinal, joint and orthopedic conditions, our treatment responses vary greatly depending the condition, severity of injury and healing constitution. Initial responses range from a great sense of exhilaration, well-being and pain relief to an increase in symptoms.

Chiropractic and Orthopedic Rehabilitation is an exercise to joints and muscles . . . in some cases joints have not moved properly for some time. Since this is the case, patients may experience transient muscular achiness or joint pain in stagnant joints that have not “exercised” in a long time, just like starting a new exercise program or physical activity that he/she is not accustomed to performing. This however, is a temporary “conditioning” response. The beneficial effects of the removal of nerve irritation, greater joint mobility, and improved health is typically evident in the initial phase of treatment, and patients realize that they are quickly on the road to recovery.

Our staff encourages patients to discuss with our doctors their responses. This is also a good practice for patients to do when encountering other physicians. Most physicians keep records of patients’ responses and may alter the treatment plan accordingly or have specific instructions based on their feedback or preferences.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jacob G. Caraotta
