despite the initial doubt expressed by her regular GP.
General rule of thumb; Never ask a Ford dealer what he thinks of Dodges; the exact same thing applies to GPs and Chiropractors; never ask one about the other; (that actually DON"T know; they're not trained to "know"; both are trained in their "field" only.
As for chiropractors, I have known many people who "swear by" them; I also know many people who "swear at" them; I believe that indicates that the only way to ever answer the question, is to go try one; I've thought about it a few times, but never "got around" to going to see one.
I had a big motor cycle crash while I was in the Navy; it didn't quite break my back, but it sure "screwed it up", big time! Had lots of back problems for about 20 years; Then, during the last 25 years of trucking, out of a total of 40, I had a few falls from the top of car carriers; (also numerous "incidents" involving the biggest killer of all car haulers, a tie down bar; I got so "banged up" so many times, that it became impossible to "relate" any one specific "ache or pain" with the "incident" that caused it; now, after being retired since 1997, and taking fairly decent care of the old "bod".......I'm almost back to feeling like a 20 yr old again;
(there's a bit of "risk" involved in feeling good though); even though I generally feel pretty good, the bones are STILL 80 yrs old; 80 yr old bones are somewhat less "flexible" than 20 yr old bones; so any time I'm more than about 20 feet from the ground, I start being extra careful, (and sometimes even resorting to a full body harness with a "fall decelerating" lanyard. So far I haven't broken anything in quite a while; (and still haven't gotten around to seeing a chiropractor! yet.)
