What should I wear to my first visit to a chiropractor?

If you're going for an adjustment, wear loosely fitting clothing that won't get in your doctor's way while he adjusts you. Your body is going to be moving around a lot, so avoid wearing anything that might give you an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction. A t-shirt and shorts or leggings should suffice.

What should I do first massage or chiropractor?

Those who just started chiropractic adjustments may also consider massage first before the therapy to reduce any discomfort while the adjustments are being done.

How to Know When an Injury Needs Ice or Heat

Use heat for chronic (ongoing), non-inflammatory pain or stiffness, such as from arthritis, fibromyalgia, back or neck pain.

Is ice or heat better after chiropractic adjustment?

Soreness may occur after an adjustment, particularly if the vertebra was significantly subluxated (out of place) prior to being adjusted.
