If you have a good one, they're great! If you don't, well... not much changes.

do you know what the extent of your back problems are, TBS? Have you had an mri or any other diagnostic test?

my dad's a chiropractor... i think its much the same as medical doctors... some are far better than others and they won't always be able to solve your problems look for someone who is not afraid to refer you to an orthopedist if it is not fixab;e by chiropractic... i guess my dad had the benefit of interning with an orthopedist.

basically what chuckT said. i had real shitty back problems. had a therapist that didn't work for crap, had a chiro that made it worse. i was finally talked into going to another chiro (very reluctant). 3rd times a charm. on a side note, and thinking about what made this one different from the other, i can only say this. 1) the old chiro would just start crackin, & twisting my back all over the place & send me on my way. 2) ugly new chiro: 1)new one uses more updated tools (for lack of a better word) that are more precise, and uses newer stuff/technology available to the chiro world. i noticed a HUGE difference with these newer methods almost immediately. 2) totally hot chiro chick!

A chiro brought me back to the living. Had a herniated disk in neck, pinched nerve, had me crying like a baby. After weeks, and bad diagnosis, folks at work made me see one. First one was ok, second one is awesome. No problems now. And quit sleeping on your stomach. also those funky pillows do work. Good luck, don't give up TXLEWIS

You might also look into orthotics. I was making good progress with the chiro but things got even better when I got some orthotics. Strengthening the core muscle groups, the stomach and lower back, and stretching are the things most of the good ones will ask you to do on your own. If, like flossing, you neglect these, the results will be less beneficial. Then there's diet.

I go to a chiro. I used to have horrible Migraine headaches. I have had them for years. This is the only thing that has helped so far. Drugs sucked, Fiorecet: 1st week 1 pill worked, 2nd week it took 2 pills, 3rd week my Nuerologist cut me off thought i was addicted. Nope, they just quite working like tylenol and ibuprofen. So I met this guy in my concealed weapons class. They called him Doc. He was a Chiro. After keeping him from BREAKING his thumb off with his new 9mm Auto, he invited me to his office for a consult. Over a year later I have almost no migraines. Its great. No missed work or anything. My insurance covered it, and he waived the co-pay. When insurance stopped paying, he didn't tell me.:) He is pro gun, I bought the same model of pistol that he had, he was shooting double taps that touched, and he hadnt shoot for 6 years. Good luck.
