  • Chiropractor

    I have back problems and every year it gets worse. Just wondering if any of you go to a chiropractor on monthly basis if so how much does it help. Replaced a 75 residential hwh and 100 gal commercial hwh yesterday. My back is screaming.

    Had one for about 3 years. What a strange relationship we had. She loved to hurt me and I paid her well to do it. I purchased a TENS unit and haven't been back since. Just over a hundred bucks but relief when and whereever I need it.

          Re: Chiropractor

          I saw a chiropractor for six months following a auto accident which resulted in constant neck and back pain along with headaches. I also have degenerative disc disease(very common) probably from swinging a sledge and doing things like shoulder carrying telephone poles for a living. I got no relief from the chiropractor although I have friends that swear by them. Personally I find stretching out the spasms and exercising to keep the muscles toned and limber helps prevent injury and pain in the long run. All the chiropractor is really doing in my opinion is either working out a spasm or help realign what we have thrown out of wack by doing the sort of thing you describe. You can prevent injury by putting some time into getting stronger. I know we think we are strong and tough, that's not the kind of strong I'm referring to. Hope you get relief. Frank

            Combining a chiropractor with ARP-wave treatments will amaze you just how well you truly can feel.

                It goes on the back! Not the front!

                    tried one for 6 months before i saw a md.

                    i guess when you herniate a disc, it's too late.

                    took me 5 years of stabbing pain to finally get relief. worked through it and i still have poor flexibility as far as touching my toes.

                    never lost my strength, just my flex. one of the main reasons why i switched to slip on shoes years ago.

                      Re: Chiropractor

                      I see my Chiropractor on a regular basis. Not just for the back, really screwed up a shoulder @ 3 years ago noproblems today, took a while but good as new. Just like Plumbers there are good and bad, ask around for a referral. My suggestion is look for someone who uses the Diversified Method/Gonsted X-ray listings using a Thompson Table, I know you have no idea what I just told you but the right Chiropractor will. Don't fall for the big prepay scams. Oh yeah if they use an Activator thats a bonus. If you want I can ask my Chiro for a referal in your area.

                      They can set you up with streches and exercises that will help keep out of the Chiropractors office.

                        I go to a Physiotherapist whenever my back goes out not a bone cracking Chiropractic quack as a phsio does a softer form of therapy than a Chiropractor who wants to see you on a monthly basis when it is not nessarsay

                          Trust me, a physiotheropist has NOTHING on a good ARP-wave treatment, dead serious. If think getting a massage relaxes you, you have no idea what your missing. I can go from not being able to touch the floor with my finger tips to being able to palm the floor in a matter of a 5 minutes.
