Default chiropractors

So I just started seeing a chiro ..... I have always been skeptical but after one visit my back feels better. I don't have chronc pain but every once in a while I will move the wrong way and be in agony for a week to the point where I can't put on my shoes or get out of my truck comfortably. I'm not saying I'm 100% but I'm at 75% up from 25% in one short visit. I highly recommend trying it out if you have back pain!

I find the relief they provide fleeting. Like after a good massage you always feel a little better afterwards. If they provide or recommending stretching etc., I'm sure that helps, but that is not exclusively a Chiropractic thing...it's common knowledge increasing flexibility is always helpful. The neck snapping thing (adjustment they call it) I find gimmicky. I think that snap is similar to cracking your knuckles which releases nitrogen gas in joint fluids nothing more...just my opinion. But, if you find relief with them that is what counts.

This guy doesn't snap you he uses an adjustment tool and it works

I've been going to our chiropractor for about 2 years now and my back has felt great since then. I crack the last two vertebrae in my back in high school. I've had problems with it for about 20 years. I go once a month now to be aligned. I highly recommend to keep going, but it is up to you since WE ARE NOT DOCTORS!!!

Seeing that as a child forever made me not willing to go to one.

I've always felt that if our spine was meant to be adjusted we would have been born with wing-nuts on it. Many of my former co-workers disagree and say chiropractic treatments are the only thing allowing them to continue their job.

My lower discs are starting to compress. I saw the xrays. My spine and pelvis are way out of alignment. Yesterday I woke up and could barely move. Had pain down my leg and I said eff it I'm going to a chiro. Aft er that visit no pain down my leg and I could actually move ..... its great

Saw one once upon a time.
He twisted my back.
I had to go see a surgeon after that. The Chiro twisted the wrong part and tore my disk worse than what it was.
