What's your experience going to a chiropractor?
June 8, 2007 8:44pm CST
I spend a lot of time sitting during the day and working on the computer and my upper back just kills! Sometimes the pain travels down to one of my shoulders and it feels like it burns! I have my husband push on my back to crack it and it usually gives it some temporary relief, but nothing that lasts for any length of time. I've been contemplating going to see a chiropractor, but there's a part of me that isn't sure it will help any. What are your experiences?

I have been going to my chiropractor for years now and I feel it is a part of a healthy body. I have severe headaches and nothing helps but a trip to the chiropractor. I would do a little homework on the chiropractors around your area and test them out. Good luck!

My chiropractor has completely changed my life. I did not believe in chiropractic buy my friend begged me to try so I did and it has been amazing! I no longer have allergies and asthma. She was also able to get rid of nerve issues I was having in my legs that doctors could not figure out what it was. Of course she helped me with back and neck pain too. A chiropractor can definitely help you with your back pain and if you have any other health issues it is likely that they can help with those too. I don't know exactly how it works but it does. I have decided to go to chiropractic school (I was going to go to medical school) becuase of all that my chiropractor has done for me. I prefer low-impact or no-force chiropractic personally, but everyone is different, you may like the high-impact (thats when you can actually hear a pop) which is what it sounds like your husband has been doing but it doesn't sound like that is working long term so you may want to try low impact which takes a little longer but tends to be more permanent. Hope this helps!
