Chiropratic has been proven to give relief not fix the pain, in many cases, its has been proven that the adjustement being very violent can actually lead to disk damage and hernia. I never met anyone who has been fixed by chiropratic, i only met people who after a while where fed up about allt he crap the chiro was telling them and promises false promises to fix them and left frustrated like myself. Chrio are fighting a losing war, being that sport physio, osteopaths and prolotherapy are a far better option to take when it comes to 100% healing someone, they also work in teams, the chiro works alone or sometimes with machines and massage therapy. How can an adjustment hold when the ligaments and surrounding muscles cant hold the bones togheter? still the chiro pays no attention to this at all and beleives that adjustments upon adjustments will eventually fix the problem. My pelvic always gets unaligned, i got it adjusted 150 times a least, i ask the chiro about core muscle training and maybe sending me to see the sport clinic, he said that its worthless and at some point the adjustment will hold. How can i thrust or even beleive what the dirty chiros are trying to tell me when there only goal is to get my money not fix me. When a person decides to go to the chiro its a life long sentence, adjustments might be given every month but to be honest if the muscles have been strengthen with proper PT and ligaments and tendons with prolotherapy why would anyone need to go waste there times at a chiropractor. Chiroprators are very good at bashing other technics basing there techics on subluxation. Well how are subluxation created to start with? Muscle imbalance, weakness. Its a war between them and everyone else, but its a proven case that chiropratic is crap. Studies have proven its limited effect and patience who got no benefits at all, after going to 1 or 2 osteopath treatments are completely relieved of there pains?. My first experience with chiro was when i first injured myself, 2 of them reajusted my pelvic, that made matters worst i was like this for a year and a half, then one night out of pure pain i went to an osteopath who adjusted my pelvic the correct way and that relieve the pain within my spin, but the damage was done and i needed to rebuild the muscles which i did but was unaware of prolotherapy at that time. I went back to chiropratic due to posture issues, i was told they could work on this has well, i wasted another year and a half on this, i actully felt 100% better after leaving chiropratic and stop getting all theses useless adjustments. The chiro i was seeing brought me into is office after i got my MRI review, told me that he was the only one that could fix me since i had subluxation, after doing my research i found the true meaning of subluxation and how dirty that pig was, same has all the chiros i have seen. He started screaming saying that he had been a chiro for 35 years and that no one had left the clinic unless he said so, even told me not to come crawling back when sport medecin would have done nothing for me. He was afraid because he knew deep down inside that chiropratic which he has been doing for 35 years was worthless even worst then a bill pill of ****. Visit the rebuildyourback.com website for studies on chiropratic that will never make you go there again. http://www.rebuildyourback.com the person that build this website went to a lot of chiros during 10 years and never got fixed. He has such good insights on everything conserning back pain. I hate chiros i really hate there guts. Now Steve please dont try to make me change my views on chiropratic i have seen 5 of theses virus in my quest for pain relief and they where all scum. The best thing is a proper rehab program that can be done at home to strenghten the core muscles, proper streching to decompress the lower back and spin, inversion table can be amazing for this purpose. And chronic pain can be fixed with some prolotherapy, if no hernia is present, most of the time its lax ligaments. I am on my third prolo treatment and feel a lot better, still the medical doctor told me that i will need a lot more treatments to fix what the chiro did with all these useless adjustments.
