    How many of you have had a bad experience with a Chiropractor or don't believe in Chiropractors at all?

    I have been a chiropractor for over 20 years. I was a patient for 30 years before and have had back pain and left sicatic leg pain. Both are maintained with out surgery and medicaion.


    I have a book of people that write about their experience with me and we are starting volume III. Interestingly I got an email this morning from a patient that wants a second opinion. She had her first visit with a Chiropractor two days ago. He took x-rays and said she has a very bad neck with a reversed curve. Said it would take 80 visits and $4500 to fix. Thats a scam. Real chiropractors get people out of pain and then maintain the spine for what their insurance pays. Just like other doctors.

    I love my Chiro and his wife.. He discusses what he sees as the prob after xrays.. and tells you if he can help. He only holds you as a patient ultil you are free of pain.. then you are off to your old sweet life... If you have another issue he is always there.

    SEVERAL YEARS AGO I HAD A SEVERE BACK PROBLEM AND DESPITE TWICE WEEKLY PHYSIO WAS NOT GETTING ANY BETTER> I WENT TO A CHIRO AND WITHIN SIX MONTHS I WAS BACK PLAYING COMPETETIVE TENNIS, SOMETHING WHICH I HAD BEEN UNABLE TO DO FOR TWELVE MONTHS PRIOR.

    Within 6 months..what a shame you didn't try BOWEN THERAPY you would have been playing tennis a lot sooner and it would have cost you a lot less...

    Dude did you invest in this product and that's why you're trying to market it here? You sound like a salesman. Why would you thumbs down PL's answer? I will correct that for him. Hopefully you've gone and will never be back.

    Thanks Colleen, just found your support. Dammed if I can understand when one gives a personal experience to a question some clown disagrees. I was speaking from my experience not generalities. xx

    yes they are real and I might are the only one that helped me with my back pain

    I'd like a Chiropractor right now.


    If your 16 Ashligh16 maye your to young to be going to the Chiropractor if it's not really serious. Are you in pain and the bone cracker couldn't fix it?

    I'm 24 & worked for 2 Chiros for a couple of years & came to learn that they weren't looking out for their patients best interests. The main doctor I have in mind would make us to double book patients (the more patients the more money) and call ones that hadn't been in to a point where it felt harassing. He rushed patients without listening to their concerns and I felt they always left with questions unanswered. I understand we all need to make money but when it comes to health I just wish he was a little more understanding and cared more about what he did and now how much he was making.

    Absolutely real. My chiropractor has kept me healthy for years.

    I used to go to a Chiropractor he did me a lot of good.I had a broken back and no one wanted to adjust my neck and back.Because they thought they would hurt my back.

    Now this sounds like a real useful question and one i'm keen to get a response to my answer.Right well 3 areas where i get reoccuring pain that can be wearing so any advice is very welcome.
    Well start with what i reckon be the trickier one.It's in my stomach area,am sure it just muscle pain but it!s level with my navel n to my right,get pain there often.Next is where my neck n shoulders meet but maybe 1-2 inch at the back on both sides.Lastly is the base of my back level wi the top of my pelvis but on the outside half of my back both sides thou at times it's right between too.Anyway doc thats my troubles,any suggestions would be appreciated cos i thought it was just old age.lol

    If you are tired of getting ripped off by Chiropractors ..then Try BOWEN THERAPY ....an australian therapy developed in Geelong by TOm Bowen 1916-1982... now recognised all over the world.

    if it hadn't been for one i wouldn't be walking upright today. so i can't say anything bad. but remember this, there are always a few bad apples..

    Chiropractors do nothing that common sense won't do. There is no way of correcting alignment in a human. Try it on a little dog and you will find it impossible. The field is helpful to those who cannot help themselves but shouldn't be under insurance for the saner people to pay for!!
