Agreed on the M.D. first and foremost...<br><br>Chiropractors make you feel good until all of a sudden you stop going. I've had a back problem for about 10 years now, but I take care of it with stretching and just generally not 'overdoing it'. I will never visit a chiro simply because of the 'quack-like' things I've heard about them...<br><br><br>[color:red]You slap my back, I'll slap yours!</font color=red>

Not all chiropractors are bad. I hurt my back about a year ago at work. I chose a chiropractor instead of a medical doctor first because a MD will want to put you on a muscle relaxer usually first and I just can't take them. The chiropractor I went to took x-rays first before even touching me to rule out a slip disc or other problems that would require seeing a medical doctor. Of course it did take several visits to his office for adjustments. I just can't work and carry on with my daily activities on a muscle relaxer. I just chose this route first before having to take all the drugs, and it worked for me!<br><br>

I went to about 10 office visits for adjustments. Of course he wanted me to continue to see him twice a month, but my insurance wouldn't pay for that. So I just quit going all together and haven't had any problems since. <br><br>
Years ago I went to one who was really good. His wife, on the other hand, was into this holistic stuff. One time I went, he was on vacation, so she was going to give me an adjustment. I'm on the table with my face in that stupid donut thing and she starts waving her hands over my back. Not making contact, mind you, just waving them back and forth. After about 10 minutes she tells me I'm all set. I'm looking at her like are you nuts, uh yeah, she was. I said, that's fine, but I'd like a real adjustment. She says, that was a real adjustment. So I tell her that it wasn't my aura that's causing me pain. She gets miffed that I don't buy into her spirit child crap, not for 60 bucks an hour, you're darn right I don't. <br>She finally does a real adjustment, pretty good one too, and then I'm feeling just fine. <br>They don't call them Quack-a-practor for nothing.<br><br>"You're off the edge of the map, mate! Here there be monsters!"
