When you’re in pain, you want relief now. There are a variety of things you can do at home to feel better, including getting a good night’s sleep.

Many people feel less pain and an increased range of motion after the first visit. But if the problem is more serious, it may take longer.

You may also find that your pain has shifted to a different part of your body. This is caused by breaking up scar tissue and sore muscles that have not been used in a while.

Patients will usually feel better, then find symptoms return. As you improve, you’ll go pain-free for longer periods of time.
