Have you seen a Chiropractor?

Did it help your problem? What happened when you stopped seeing your chiropractor, did the troubles resurface - or was he able to permanantly fix it? how long did you go to him, how often per month? I have a friend who sees a chiropractor a couple times a month, if she misses an appointment she can really feel the difference in her mobility. For her the doctor does wonders, but it is not a cure.

When I was pregnant with my second child, I saw a chiropractor right up until a few weeks before I gave birth. He did wonders for me!! When I first started going, it was once every two weeks and then once a month for "maintenance". I didn't go back after I gave birth because I got too busy with the baby, but I wish I had kept up with it. While I was going, I was literally pain free. Now that I've stopped going, the pain is back. I would love to be able to go back and get adjusted every month. I know it makes a big difference in my posture and mobility.

that is how my friend is...when she goes she can manage but when she does not go for awhile she gets very stiff and pained.

I saw a chiropractor several years ago. It helped my back stop hurting, as a large dog had hit me and knocked me down. I visited him for 6 months and started losing weight, which helped my back and it no longer hurts now.

I have been to the Chiropractor for several different reason and it has helped the problem, some were back and some were neck.The problem i have with them is that once you get started going they want you to keep coming back like forever.I believe the body has its own alignement system to an extent, I have friens who go all the time and it turns into a thing of they dont feel good if something gets out of place so they have to go to make themselves feel better.

I myself have not been to a chiropractor but my mother went. Her hips were out of place. It took a few months of visits to get her back in alingment but it did work. Now she oly goes when she starts feeling pain in her hips. I think they do a fantastic job.

I saw one for my lower back for a couple of months. I would go in every other week after my initial couple of weekly visits. But I didn't have to go after a while. It worked wonderfully. My sister sees hers on a regular as needed basis. She says she doesn't know how she ever lived without it.

I personally haven't had to go to a Chiropractor. Now my older sister swears by hers. She suffers from fibromylgia and for her the adjustments are critical just for her to function normal. She goes once a week. She now has her teenage son go as well. Since he's into sports at High School and is super tall 6ft. 4in., she says he needs regular adjustments. My opinion on the matter is biased. I feel its not necessary, but who knows how I'd feel if I was in her position...you know.

I went to a chiropractor years ago when I was having a lot of knotting in my shoulders and couldn't stand it any longer. He told me I was badly misaligned and realigned me. It felt fine at first, but an hour or so later my whole body ached and it lasted a few days. My friend who had suggested I go said it was normal as I was carrying my body properly and using muscles I wasn't used to using when I was misaligned. The one thing that helped was the use of ultrasound therapy to break up the knots. It worked.
