I've been having a lot of back pains recently, the worst lasting for literally weeks on end, and I'm thinking about seeing a chiropractor. My family has a history of spine problems, and my pelvis is lower on one side, causing my spine to twist to compensate. What are your thoughts on chiropractors? Some people seem really for it; others look at it as some form of voodoo witch doctoring. I did an online search and found this clinic offering chiropractic treatment for back pain. Does anyone here has approached them for services? It would be great to share your thoughts!
I have used a chiropractor in the past. I would advise not seeing one unless s/he is recommended by someone you trust. Range of ability can vary greatly. But I would really recommend a physical therapist. I have had pelvis out of alignment which was fixed in Pt. I would still be in a wheelchair without them. It amazes me how they can identify a weak muscle and then figure out how to isolate it with the exercise to strengthen it. I had horrendous back spasms that I have not had in a year because of learning how to strengthen my core. I cannot say enough positive things about them. I've worked with 6 over the past 2 years . I also prefer pt over chiropractor because I feel more in control and an active participant versus having someone adjust me-personal preference
I am a para and see a chiropractor,saw him before my accident. You may want to try a massage therapist. Not one that is a big chain. Find one of the home town ones, someone who has been doing it a long time and it is all they do
