The feeling you have after a chiropractic adjustment will depend on whether or not you have had an adjustment in recent history. If you are used to the adjustment process, you will generally feel refreshed after the treatment. Alternatively, first-time patients may have some soreness.
This video explains why chiropractic adjustments can be painful if you have not had one before. The group of joints being manipulated is not used to such movements, so the effect is similar to going to the gym when you have not exercised in several months. In time, the soreness will subside and your back will feel better.
