I have a very good chiropractor that I go to, on rare occassions.
His instructions are to exercise my abs & back, regularly.
If I do this, I rarely run into problems.
BUT...There are those stupid times that I plant my foot wrong...get out of bed & twist at just the wrong time...lift, without thinking...exit a vehicle wrong...Just stupid stuff.
Those times, I attempt the stretching exercises & if the problem doesn't go away, I make an appointment.
I once went to a chiropractor that a good friend suggested.
The a55hole mis-diagnosed me with scholiosis & wanted to put me on 18 months of therapy.
I left his office & made an appointment at my current clinic.
Do not just trust the opinion of a single doctor (of any kind), when they tell you something crazy, like that.
2 visits to my current chiropractor had me back in shape, after 10 days.
Sadly, the friend that suggested that other quack has made it a policy to go in for adjustments, every few weeks.
I often wonder whether it's only because of the quack's prescribed treatments.
