Re: Not really an issue but a question

Not all chiropractors are the same. IME there has been a bit of a bridging between chiropractic therapy and physiotherapy in that there are a lot of physiotherapists who use chiropractic techniques and vice-versa.

My neck locked up last August, which was one of the more painful things I have experienced, so I went to physio to work it out. He used a combination of cracking my neck and upper back along with massage and electric stimulus to get the muscles to release and restore motion. I know that there are chiropractors who would use a similar approach.

I was firmly against chiropractors before this but now see that there are aspects to manipulations with some therapeutic benefit. That said, I would avoid any chiropractor who claim he can cure disease.
