It is very normal if you are sore or stiff after the examination and treatment. If you feel pain or discomfort we ask that you tell us right away.
If this is an acute condition (less than 10 days) and you have swelling or heat we ask that you apply an ice pack for 5-8 min every hour for the first day and then every two hours the next. We will show you one or two very gentle stretching exercises. Should you have any questions, you will be given Dr.Sloat’s emergency number to call and she will be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.
If this is a chronic condition and you are having an acute flair you will be instructed to use ice and gentle stretching. If this is a long-standing problem you will receive different instructions such as moist heat, stretching, postural re-education, and strengthening exercise etc.
