These changes occur over the course of multiple treatments.
Is Fascial Manipulation painful?
Most people experience local soreness in the treated area lasting 2-12 hours after treatment. In some cases, the positive local inflammation produced can cause pain up to 48 hours depending on the nature and duration of the condition.
