I am thinking about seeing one about some minor back/neck pain that is nagging and becoming a little annoying. I was just wondering if others have used their services.

Like any healthcare provider, I'm sure it goes person to person (some are great, some less so) but I had a great experience with one. First person (after several MDs) to pick up on the cause of a running injury. I say go for it, particularly if you have one that comes recommended.

i'm seeing one now for back adjustments. again, it depends on the individual you hook up with, but i really like mine and i know it makes a difference in my overall posture.

i've seen one previously and he. wasn't. so. cool. he kept trying to get me to attend these meetings he'd have after hours....um, no thanks. so i've had a positive and not so positive experience.

i think the adjustments, if done by a qualified person, are a good thing for your posture and overall balanced feeling.

I see one and he has helped with some issues but not with others. Sometimes I wonder if he created others. depending on the pain a massage may you.

like that's what you need

i'm having bi-weekly deep tissue massages now, legs only, and i believe it really works wonders for releasing spasms and knots in quads and hip flexors.

Last week i started going to a chiropractor - for migraines and shoulder and neck pain - per the Xrays he took - I have some neck issues, probably caused by football and years of rugby.

He's a friend of the family - great guy - unfortunately i like to ask questions and he loves to talk so my visit lasts too long.

I never needed one, but my wife uses one. Be sure to get a good one.

Timely. I'm about to make my first appointment today. I did get a recommendation from someone I highly respect for treating athletes. I'll post a follow up later.

My problem: According to MD, a bulged disk in L3-L4. 3 weeks now not getting much better. On Prednisone for a week and still not able to run etc.
