actorathlete10 saidChiropractors ARE doctors. you jerk at the bottom who called them pseudoscience doctors. If you go to an MD for this problem they'd give you prescription pain killers when in fact pain is the indicator that there's a problem. My chiropractor is amazing and has cured me of some of my structural conditions and has changed my life.
Now, if only your mother had taught you a bit of decorum. You've done a great job of showing you aren't very bright, and certainly have issues with communications skills. Chiropractors are NOT medical doctors. They have some basic training in that area, but, they are not doctors of science. Had you spent some time reading on chiropractic, you would know that. You've shown us that not only do you lack manners, but, knowledge, too. Just FYI, because of their lack of medical, and pharmacological, knowledge chiropractors are NOT regarded as MDs, of any kind, and do not have prescription privileges. Next time, before making yourself look silly, you need to know what you're talking about. Much of chiropractic is based on mumbo jumbo of its followers, although it's starting to evolve in the recent past. Clearly, you're just a bit ignorant. I recommend that you spend more time studying before posting.
To the original poster:
Most back pain is resultant of being either to fat, or out of shape, and improper use.
Manipulation has some value but does NOT treat the underlying cause. Much of chiropractic is complete nonsense, and is more about ongoing treatment, rather than fixing the underlying problem.
I've met some chiropractors who were complete idiots and others who were a bit better.
A better choice would be an osteopath, who IS a M.D. and and O.D. who is a true medical doctor, and NOT a chiropractor, but who understands manipulation, as well as medicine and surgery.
Often, getting in shape or correcting an imbalance or behavior fixes the problem. Fixing the underlying problem is a much better choice.
I've been lifting for 34 years, and know that to pop my very low back, and can sit with my knees crossed and twist (just like a real wrestler does). For my low back, I can also put a bunch of weight on the leg press and it'll pop right in. For my mid back, I simply grab a couple of heavy dumbbells and plop down on a flat bench in the weight room, and pop,pop,pop. For my upper back, I can often just roll on the floor, or have someone use their hand or find someone strong enough to pull me over (like a real wrestler does).
My experience with chiropractors has been that most are incompetent.
I can't imagine why a professional doing manipulation would need to know about your sexuality. It seems very self-centric / paranoid from here.
If there is a school near you (here, in DFW, we have Palmer right up the road) you can get treatment on the very cheap.
You may consider, as I said, addressing the underlying problem, instead.
