A post like this only shows how stupid might be. I hardly think you're qualified to make an assumption like this on an entire profession that happens to have higher satisfaction rates from patients than medicine or physio.Padre said:Chiro = not real doctor aka quack-o-practor
I went to numerous chiros seeking help for what I thought was a back problem....they all say the same thing saying that crunching your spine and poping joints will cure everything....from bed waiting to low back pain...and migraines...
after a few years of searching....i finally went to a physical therapist....
who intelligently looked past the back...the location of the symptoms...and the potential of 2 years of "adjustments...."
and discovered my left hip was significantly out of joint....he put it back (ouch) and with a about 12 visits and lots of excercises etc....i'm 100% symptom free.....
Your mileage may vary...just dont thing chiro's are the be-all-end-all....

Give your head a shake.
It is true that stretching can help substantially in reducing back pain, although which stretches will help you, may not be so easy to identify. To say "Go stretch, and it will help your back" is not entirely true. You need to do the right stretches for you and your specific condition.A D NOH said:How is your flexilibility?
The reason I ask is because when I went to the chiro, I basically had a lower back injury due to HORRIBLE lower body flexibility. The tightness of my muscles caused some pelvic tiltage and some other stuff.
I have worked on my flexibility a great deal and now my back is back up to 90% and I feel with more flexibility (I can barely touch my toes now after warming up) I feel that I can be
back to 100% and back to deadlifting heavy weights
If you are flexible, then sorry dont have much for you, haha..
I have a chiro friend from the gym whose best friend has a place in Costa Mesa and I heard he is really good. He is a little more expensive because he does xrays and tries to really see what is the best way to go about correcting you.
I've been working with Shane in Mission Viejo for about 6months now. He focused more on athletes and escpecially mountain bikers. He mountain bikes himself so can relate to the patient more. He is the official Team Doctor of 'Sho-Air Racing'. They also offer DMS and massage service.tkblazer said:
Hardly quality info from that linkage, and since when has the "legality" of Chiropractic been in question?:shocked:stuffen said:I'm avid surfer and MTB'er. Here's another debate on the legality of Chiropractors.
