No, I've heard a few horror stories about chiropractors.
Half cocked ones are dangerous.
Yes, and yes. Highly recommended. Especially if you are over 40.
I injured my back while working a summer job during college. Over the years it would flare up and I would be miserable for a while. Medical sciences answer was generally codeine and Tylenol pills. They were great pills, but did nothing to fix the back. After one period when I was doped out of my mind for about 6 weeks, my neighbors convinced me to see their chiropractor. I told them I wasn't interested because I was afraid of the bead and rattles. They insisted and I went. The Chiropractor "fixed " me so I could walk without pain. I would see her once in a while for a "tweak" over the next 20 years. While I am suspicious of most chiropractors' business models, June made my life livable and was one hell of a lot more help than Medical Doctors.
I went a couple times recently, but it didn't seem to help. So, I quit going. However, my boyfriend goes every other week and it really helps him. I guess it's different for everyone.
I think they need to be watched
